Adrian Chiles – Alcoholism, Depression
Adrian Chiles revealed that when he lost his job in 2015 at ITV, it took a toll on his mental health. He shared that he took anti-depressants and has always battled depression and anxiety. He added he began his 'mindless' drinking to cope with depression.
Chiles who does not think he is an alcoholic said his life is 'built' around alcohol.
"The word "alcoholic" is outdated, but I am undoubtedly dependent on alcohol to some extent – and if I am, thousands of others are. The only days I literally drank nothing were when I was broadcasting in the evening."
He also revealed his anxiety:
"Anxiety had begun to affect my work. It became difficult for me to get the words out in the right order.
I'd gone from somebody who could ad lib for hours on end to the opposite. One night at Wembley, I looked at the autocue and I could hardly get the words out.
There was actually very little to do in presenting the football – ask a pre-prepared question of each pundit, throw to a break – and the less there was to do, the harder I found it."
A recent ultrasound showed that he is at risk of liver failure, cirrhosis, and ultimately death. He has now vowed to reduce his alcohol consumption.
