Even though his career took off almost immediately, it wasn’t without its pitfalls. “There were a lot of perks to being a kid star on TV. You’re constantly taken care of; there’s always people watching out for you,” Jeremy says. “The being treated differently plays both sides. That was something as a kid I really understood at a young age, so I was very cautious about the people I involved in my life.” While Jeremy was enjoying the perks of being a child star, few knew that he was battling with alcoholism. Having had his first drink at age 4, he says, he never had the “off switch” to stop drinking, and it took him years to confront his problem. Watch the above video as Jeremy explains how he hit “rock bottom.” Find OWN on TV at http://www.oprah.com/FindOWN SUBSCRIBE: http://bit.ly/1vqD1PN Their stories made headlines across America.
