McGraw: Drunk Texting Helped Me Quit Drinking

Tim McGraw learned to text when he was drinking heavily – he knew if he called his wife, Faith Hill, she would know he’d been indulging. But then even text messaging got him in trouble.Tim stated, “I started slurring my texts and I figured, ‘Hell, I’ve got to quit drinking, that’s the only thing that’s going to work.”

McGraw, who has three daughters with Hill, gave up alcohol in 2008.  The couple has been married since 1996.

“Faith has kept me alive,” McGraw told People magazine.  He says if it weren’t for his wife, “I’d be dead.  I would have partied too hard… She’s saved my life in a lot of different ways – from myself more than anything.  She’s loved me through times when I didn’t love me.”

McGraw has been making the media rounds promoting “Country Strong,” which is in theaters now. Check out one of many reviews here.
