A new episode of Chrisley Confessions dropped yesterday featuring Todd, Chase, and Julie Chrisley. The family spent some time talking about Chase and his sobriety. Turns out, Chase Chrisley is eight months sober. Eight months from what? Well, Chase clarified this applies to ALL controlled substances. But, he mostly had an issue with marijuana and alcohol.
Todd chimed in to remind his listeners his podcast is more than just discussing his family. He also wants to help anyone listening he might be struggling with similar problems. So, he hoped to dig a little deeper into Chase’s struggles with drugs and alcohol on the off chance that it helps someone listening.
Todd and Julie don’t drink or do drugs, why did Chase Chrisley?
Todd Chrisley kicks off the conversation by revealing that neither himself nor Julie has an issue with alcohol or drugs. It was never something they explored. So, he wondered how Chase and some of his siblings could turn to alcohol and drugs such as marijuana when their parents didn’t share these inhibitions. Chase Chrisley was quick to note that he could only speak for himself and his experience.
Todd’s son recalls being pretty young when he went into a pretty big business situation. Drinking and controlled substances are “active” in the work environment. Likewise, he agreed the party scene is just huge these days.
As the two dug deeper, Chase admitted that he had some demons and personal issues he was trying to escape with drugs and alcohol. Now that he has a clear head being eight months sober… He realizes he was not escaping his problems. Instead, he was just amplifying them. Chase also admitted that alcohol has had a huge part in why so many of his relationships haven’t worked out.
He has a clear head and he’s a homeowner
While talking about what his life looked like now, Chase revealed he was a homeowner now. This was in addition to celebrating being eight months sober. He acknowledged briefly that this means he would have all of the usual problems that come with being a homeowner.
Todd and Julie Chrisley briefly touched on how they reached a point where they had to cut Chase off financially so he would stop partying. Todd added he knew it was difficult for his wife Julie as she felt stuck in the middle.
Chase Chrisley admits that he doesn’t miss partying or doing controlled substances. He claims he’s done with that life. He also claims he will own what he’s done in his past because he refuses to let anyone who has partied with him try to extort him or his family for money. Turns out, this is something that has happened to him on more than a few occasions. His daddy, however, refuses to allow him to buckle under blackmail.
