Charlie Sheen has revealed he's nearing six years sober after years of struggling with alcohol and drug addiction.

The actor and producer is known for being involved in some of the biggest projects in Hollywood, with many accolades to his name.

Despite all the glamour and fame, Sheen has spoken previously about his problems with alcohol and drugs.

But after a heartbreaking incident with his daughter, Sheen decided it was time to drop the booze for good.

These days, the actor is feeling petty good about himself as he marks six years sober in January.

Speaking to People, Sheen said: "Next month I'll be six years sober. I have a very consistent lifestyle now. It's all about single dad stuff, and raising my 14-year-old twin boys Max and Bob."

The boys' mom, Brooke Mueller, has also spoken about her problems with addiction in the past.

Sheen continued: "Now I wake up early, around 4:30 or 5 a.m., get an early jump on the news, work out, answer emails.

"Then I get the kids up and help them with their morning routine — if you can call it a routine."

His current morning routine couldn't be any further from what it was some six years ago, as Sheen typically started every day with a drop of alcohol.

"I loved drinking in the morning," he recalled. "Loved some scotch in the coffee."

But it was a drunken morning in 2017 that prompted him to make huge lifestyle changes, and it was all involving his daughter.

Sheen said: "One morning I'd forgotten my daughter had an appointment I'd promised to drive her to, and I'd already had a couple of pops that day.

"So had to call my friend Tony to take us. We got her there on time, but it broke my heart because she was in the backseat and I could just tell she was thinking, 'Why isn't dad driving?' So I got home and sat with that for the rest of the day. And the next morning I just stopped."

The actor quit drinking there and then, cold turkey and everything.

"I think the first month I was like, I'm going to have give it a month, just see if I feel any better, and if my interactions with those that are closest to me improve," he told People.

"And they did. And I'm like, all right, I'm going to go another month. And then it got traction. I had momentum."

With his improved health, Sheen is now testing the waters for a film comeback.
