Dave Coulier Says His Sobriety Helps Him Deal With the Loss of His Brother, Father, and Friend Bob S


Dave Coulier says it's his sobriety that allows him to feel "the pain" of losing his brother, father, and close pal Bob Saget within a year.

In an upcoming episode of "Tamron Hall," the comedian, 62, who is well-known for his role as Joey on Full House, opens up about losing many people close to him within a short period of time.

"I definitely went through the sorrow hat trick, so to speak," Coulier told Hall. "My brother took his own life and he was actually the funniest person I've ever known. My brother, Dan. I was the one who found him at my dad's house down in the basement. A part of me died that day, as well, because I really loved my brother."

"I made jokes to my friends and family and the line was, 'Boy, I sure picked the wrong time in my life to stop drinking.' And people would laugh at that knowing I was sober," explained Coulier, who announced his sobriety at the beginning of the year. "And then my father passed away a couple of months ago and I got to say all the of the things that a son could say to his father about how proud I was."

Coulier also discussed his last conversation with his "Full House" costar Bob Saget, which was on the day he passed.

"He was texting me and making me laugh and we were texting back and forth and making each other laugh very hard," he said. "The last thing I said to him was 'Have a great show tonight.' That was my last real connection with Bob."

The standup comic went on to say that dealing with these close and personal deaths was easier now that he is sober.

"I thought to myself after those three lives were gone, I would've never been able to feel all of that if I was drinking and it was really important to me to just feel that sorrow," he noted. "There was nothing masking that, there were no layers that were covering that up. I thought to myself, 'This is what I should be doing.'"

"I should be feeling this pain. I should be feeling this incredible love for these people," he added. "With alcohol, I was covering all that up. It was a real stark reminder to me that alcohol had been stealing all of those moments in my life for a long long time."

He is now celebrating two years of sobriety.
