Kristen Davis, who played the role of Charlotte York in Sex and the City, says that she owes to the hit series that she is still alive. The acting helped her to get rid of her alcohol addiction. 

“I am a recovering alcoholic,” Davis says to Entertainment Weekly. “If I had not become an actress … Acting was the only reason for me to try and stay sober.” 

She used to fear that she would not even reach the age of 30 years. “I started drinking very early, and luckily I also stopped drinking early, before the success came.”

Because her love for acting was so great, she could focus on something else than drinking.
