On Monday, the 47-year-old actor and singer shared an emotional message, writing:


“VULNERABLE is what I’m feeling today. After nearly a decade of sobriety I fell off the wagon. I’ve been carrying a lot of shame. Scared to share it. But I know it can help someone so here I go. I didn’t want to disappoint anyone who has looked up to me as a sober person so I’ve been just burying it away. I took my eye off the ball. I stopped doing what I needed to do to keep myself on the path of my personal integrity.”

“I could blame it on Covid. I could blame it on the state of the world. Mass shootings. A nation divided. The death of my co-star. But the truth is, I thought I had it all handled. I thought ‘I got this.’ But I don’t. I am a work in progress. Always,” he continued.

Jackson proceeded on thanking his “support system,” expressing:


“Thank you to @jamieleecurtis and so many others who have been there for me. It means everything to me. If you are out there struggling, you are not alone and there is a solution. I love you. And I love myself today and that feels really good to say. #progressnotperfection”

His husband Jason Landau commented on his emotional sobriety post, writing:

“@mrcheyennejackson your power, your truth and your willingness is why I fell in love with you. Today I love you even more.”

The ‘Call Me Kat’ actor has been receiving a lot support from friends and fans since he posted his sobriety update, and he shared a video on Instagram, thanking them for their outpouring positivity.

  1. I’ve been sober for the last 10 years, it was the worst when I was still pretending I wasn’t gay. Since I came out it helped the need to self medicate.
