Nico Tortorella: I Have An Ex-Boyfriend Who Almost Killed Me

Younger star Nico Tortorella, who recently came out as bisexual, opens up on his sobriety in a personal essay for The Berry. Check out this excerpt.

I have an ex-boyfriend who almost killed me. I loved him more than anything in the whole world. We spent a decade together. January 13th, 2017 will mark two years since the clean break. Not a single day goes by that I don’t think about him. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t miss him. He made me a happy man for so long, until he didn’t. He was electric, high voltage, still is. An escape. A poison that once ran through my veins. No one person to blame. Oh, I forgot to tell you his name. Alcohol, his name is alcohol.
