#MayimBialik​​​ #AJMcLean #BackstreetBoys AJ McLean: Backstreet’s Back! Rehabilitation, Sobriety & Relapse


Mayim accompanies AJ along his journey from addiction to rehabilitation. Mayim and AJ discuss alcohol and substance use as an ongoing battle between sobriety and relapse. AJ goes into depth on the genesis of the Backstreet Boys and how his bandmates/friends helped him to see he needed help. Mayim and AJ talk about the pressures of growing up in the public eye and the difficulty of switching between “stage” personas and their own personas. The conversation segues into self-care, and AJ talks about his mountain biking, golfing, and nail painting escapades. Mayim and AJ get down to the crux of addiction: It is not about the substance, it is about why sober living is so painful. --- Ask Mayim Anything: https://www.bialikbreakdown.com/#ask-...
