One direction member, Liam Payne, opens up about how he turned to drink due to the pressures of being in a worldwide famous boyband.
Turning to alcohol in order to cope with band pressures, Payne admits he hit a “pretty bad stage”.
He continues to open up as he is “not afraid to say” how the band’s lifestyle perpetuated his alcoholism.
Payne admits: “that time in my life, that was perfect for me. I mean, you’re away from home and that can get hard. Also there were a lot of things on my mind and that’s what helped me through.”
After realising he was going “over the limit with things” Payne decided to overcome this struggle and now relieved to finally be “out of that zone”.
Now the band is planning to go on a break in 2016. Payne confirms how the band is still together.
“It’s been five years and it’s time to take a well-earned break. Of course we’ll work together again; we’re not splitting up. We’re just having some time out”.
