The NFL Hall of Famer opened up on his battle with pills on “Bolling With Favre” on PodcastOne with guest Dr. Phil this week … saying he first got addicted in 1994 after suffering an injury. Favre started taking 2 pills a day … which led to teammates helping get him more and more painkillers “to a point where I was basically taking in 2 days, a month’s prescription, which is crazy.” Favre says he even suffered 2 seizures due to complications from his increased pill intake in 1995, which forced him to come clean with his addiction. Despite a 75-day stint in rehab, Favre’s addiction didn’t end until after winning 3-straight MVP awards AND the Super Bowl in 1997 … when he “was as low as I could possibly be.” That’s the moment he knew he had to kick his addiction for good, saying “I said it’s one of two things — I die, or I flush these pills down the toilet.” “I sat by the toilet for two hours,” Favre said. “Eventually, I dumped the pills in the toilet, flushed them and I almost wanted to kill myself because of doing that.” “I could not believe that I’ve actually done that and I was so mad at myself because now what was I gonna do?” Favre says he spent the next few months trying to get over the “urge” to take pills … and thankfully, slowly beat the addiction.
