According to the actor, he felt trapped with his ex-wife.
Hollywood actor Ben Affleck was interviewed by Howard Stern on his radio program, The Howard Stern Show, in which he shared details of his failed marriage to Jennifer Garner.
The man stated that his alcoholism problems escalated in his relationship with the actress.
"I was overcome with thoughts like, 'I can't leave because of my kids, but I'm not happy, what do I do?' I drank a bottle of whiskey and fell asleep on the couch, but that turned out to be the wrong decision," Ben Affleck recalls.
He also claims that he would still be an alcoholic if he had not divorced.
