David Arquette has admitted he is drinking again.

The 41-year-old actor received treatment for alcohol abuse in January 2011 after splitting from his wife Courteney Cox, the mother of his nine-year-old daughter Coco, and revealed he recently fell off the wagon.

Speaking on 'The Howard Stern Show', he said: ''I'm drinking again... I'm a drinker, I drink a lot.

''[I started drinking again because I felt like] I wasn't being that true to myself. I do get out of control [but] I try to keep a cap on it. I'll [also] smoke a little weed.

''Whatever I do, I'm gonna do; I'm gonna go through this journey and figure out my life. I'm a responsible person, I have my daughter three days a week... I'm incredibly responsible. I'm living my life and I'm trying not to hurt people.''

David also revealed his girlfriend, Christina McLarty, has been supportive.

He said: ''My girlfriend's cool, she supports me. She's cool.''

Meanwhile, David said he deleted all of his social media accounts because he was getting abuse.

He explained: ''People were being too mean. I think everyone's on their own journey. I'm tired of everyone judging others. I got my own problems, yes, and I will sort them out.''
