Morgan: 'Co-star Baldwin Helped Me Beat Booze'
TRACY MORGAN credits his 30 ROCK co-star ALEC BALDWIN with helping him kick booze and turn his life around.
The comedian violated his probation on a driving under the influence (DUI) charge last year (07) when he was accused of drunkenly groping a female DJ. As punishment, he was forced to wear an alcohol-monitoring ankle bracelet.
Morgan has been in recovery since, and describes himself as a "functioning alcoholic" - and he insists Baldwin has played a large part in his rehabilitation.
He says, "Alec was the main one counseling me. He's a passionate dude. I don't give a f**k what nobody say about him, dude been there. 'You got an opportunity on 30 Rock,' he told me. I felt the love when he do that."
