Adam Thomas has vowed to give up drinking in a heartfelt social media message.
The former Emmerdale and Waterloo Road star, 32, said he drinks to “escape the stresses and worries of life”.
In the Instagram post – which featured snaps of Adam and twin brother Scott – he bared his soul.
“Ok so I’ve been pondering on the idea for quite some time now,” the dad-of-two began.
“Just seeing the benefits and how it has literally changed my brother’s life, and especially my mum’s.”
He continued: “I’m going to give it ago. Not that I’m an alcoholic, but I do love a tipple now and then…
“But not for enjoyment anymore which is the scary bit, but more for escape from the stress and worries of life itself.
“I’ve tried a few times to do it before, but this time I wanted to just put it out there, just so I know I’ve got to stick to it this time.”
