      Daniel Radcliffe has admitted to having an alcohol addiction during the Harry Potter films whilst he was coming to terms with his rise to fame, Radcliffe claims that the drinking became a problem during 2009 whilst working on Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince but he claims that he hasn't touched alcohol since August 2010.

      He's no different to a lot of stars who rise to fame quite easily they can't handle it very well.
      Not sure why people think drink solves problems because when the drink wears off the problems are still there.

      I think it's probably not much different from most regular people, even. I know a lot of people with alcohol addictions, and they wouldn't even admit it, so kudos to him for trying to deal with it.

      Yeah I must admit it would have taken alot to admit to being such a big celebrity now with so many looking up to him. Main thing is he realised his problem and took action which is great :)

      I glad he got off the drink before it did any damage to his body
      He is young to get over it

      That's a good thing he decided to quit or at least stop taking alcohol. Hoping that will be for good. At his very young age, there's a lot of things he can still work on like continue to make films or tv series, visit fans around the globe, etc,. He should not ruin his life just because of alcohol addiction which will not give him any good.

      As stated above, it's a common problem amongst stars. I hope he get out of it soon.

      It's a common thing and I don't count it as a negative impression.
