Speaking to Maurice, Tyler makes it no secret that losing his job with Days of Our Lives was one of the worst moments of his career. “It crushed me, because I took for granted the one thing I love the most,” he said.

Tyler also added, “It was devastating for a myriad of reasons. One, the thing that I love the most was taken away,” he said. “Two, I threw it away. Nobody took it away from me. I dropped it, OK? Having to walk out the doors under those circumstances? That was like, ‘This is for real, dude.’ And I haven’t been back since. That ship has sailed.”

If that weren’t enough, Tyler also made it clear that a soaps comeback is not in the cards for him. What’s more, the actor also recalled the first time he got addicted to alcohol.

“Some idiot at school said, ‘There’s alcohol in there. If you drink it, you’ll get funny, silly,’” he continued. “So what’s the first thing I do? When I get home from school, I go in the cabinet, and my mom had vanilla extract, like from left to right, and I took every one. And exactly what my friends told me would happen happened. I’m like, ‘Whoa, that feels good… That’s funny, that’s cool.’ And that’s how it started. And it never stopped.”

Tyler also admitted to being a “functional addict.”

“At some point, you can not survive it,” said the actor. “At some point, it will kill you — and it has. Three times, I have flatlined. And nobody knows that. I’m saying it here for the first time. Three times I have flatlined, and they brought me back. Twice from [alcohol] poisoning, once from withdrawal.”
