‘Full House’ Star Dave Coulier Shares Bloody Throwback Photo To Celebrate Sobriety


Dave Coulier recently opened up about his sobriety. The Full House star shared that he is celebrating two years of sobriety and posted a photo after a drunken night. In the post, the 62-year-old shared why he decided to get sober and thanked his wife, family, and friends for being so supportive.

Dave’s throwback photo is a selfie where his face appears bloody and bruised. He said that he fell face down on steps after a particularly crazy night of drinking. In the post, he wrote, “I was a drunk. Yes. An alcoholic. I’ve been alcohol free since January 1, 2020. When I drank, I was the life of the party. I could make people laugh until they fell down. In this picture I was the one who fell down. Not because I was playing hockey or doing the things I love – like chopping wood or doing construction, golfing, fishing or flying airplanes. I was hammered and fell, going up some stairs made of stone.”

He continued, “No one loved having ‘beers with the boys’ after playing hockey or a round of golf more than me. I was always the “final final” guy in the room. The 8 hours of drinking, laughter and funny stupidity was followed by two days of feeling like a bowl of dog mess. I loved booze, but it didn’t love me back. I decided to make a decision for my own well-being, my family and for those around me who I love so dearly.”

Dave concluded, “The mental and physical withdrawal were big challenges for me, but I was supported by @melissacoulier and friends who had already made the journey. The psychological and physical transformation has been amazing. The sky is more blue, my heart is no longer closed, and I enjoy making people laugh until they fall down more than ever before. Thank you, Melissa, for being by my side. I love you❤️”
