During an appearance on Corey Graves’ After The Bell podcast, Jeff Hardy discussed his recent DUI arrests. Here is what Hardy said courtesy of Fightful.com: 

“After my first DUI, I said, ‘I got my first and last DUI.’ I was so sure in that moment. I think I even went on to say, ‘I’ll never get arrested again.’ And I remember, I was like, “I probably shouldn’t have said that.’ Now, being in rehab, I’ve learned a lotabout the disease known as alcoholism and addiction. Watching SmackDown, when they aired the mugshots, that’s some heavy stuff. This is my last chance to get it right. I want to get a few more years out of this body and do the best I possibly can. 

Now I still have a legal situation, a black cloud, I haven’t been convicted from when I got pulled over on October 3, 2019, the day before I called WWE and said, ‘I need help. I need treatment. There’s something wrong with me with this alcohol thing.’ I learned so much in recovery, just little things, like focusing on one day at a time, not drinking, not (doing drugs), and calling my sponsor every day and talking to another alcoholic. There is something powerful when you admit what you are. There’s a huge piece in my mind knowing that if I never drink again, I’ll never be in trouble. Jeff Hardy, plus no drinking, equals no trouble. All my trouble has come from drugs or alcohol.”
