Stephanie Davis drank "three bottles of wine" in the mornings before her rehab stint.
The "Hollyoaks" star - who plays Sinead Shelby on the Channel 4 soap - has opened up about her previous alcohol issues, admitting she suffered regular panic attacks, anxiety and night terrors.
Speaking about her decision to go to rehab on Tuesday's (29.01.19) episode of "Loose Women", she said: "I think you can only really do it yourself. People were telling me for ages. I didn't want to hear it. I gave up the fight. I did not want to do it every day.
"At the end I was drinking every day, a lot, probably three bottles of wine in the morning.
"I got told I had trauma and PTSD when I got to rehab. I was having panic attacks and anxiety. I was having night terrors. I was using it to go to sleep.
"I was in so much pain. I had to realise that blocked the pain for a while but then it starts to take and take and take."
Stephanie, 25, confessed that her two-year-old son, Caben-Albi, who she shares with ex-partner Jeremy McConnell, was the reason she never gave up and decided to go to rehab.
She added: "I didn't want to live. I wanted to die. I didn't want to live anymore. I tried to kill myself.
"But when I thought about doing it again it was scary. I thought, "It's not fair to leave him [Caben] without a mum and a dad."
"It wasn't out of choice. It's an illness and I was broken. When I said I wanted to go to rehab my mum and auntie cried. They said "we've got our Steph back." "
The brunette beauty started dating her "Hollyoaks" co-star, Owen Warner, last month, and the pair have now moved in together.
