WATCH: Johnny Manziel to open up on issues with alcohol in Good Morning America interview Monday

It’s no secret that Johnny Manziel’s life has been a whirlwind.

From Heisman Trophy winner to the NFL and then waived by the Browns, he has been to the mountain top of college football and seen it all come crashing down.

Off the field, he has agreed to a plea deal from domestic violence allegations. A report from Vanity Fair later linked him to drug use while at Texas A&M. He also reportedly trashed a rental property and has been seen multiple times out in Hollywood since he was waived by the Browns.

Now it appears Manziel is making another promise to clean up his life. He recently went to Texas A&M last weekend to promote his new “Comeback Szn” clothing line and took a photo with new football coach Jimbo FIsher.

He’s also appearing in an exclusive interview on ABC Monday morning.

“I was self-medicating with alcohol because I thought that’s what was making me happy and help me get out of this depression to a point where I thought I had some sense of happiness,” Manziel said in the interview tease. “But at the end of the day when you wake up the next day after a night like that, or after going on a trip like that, and that’s all gone? That liquid courage or that liquid sense of euphoria that’s over you is all gone. You’re left staring at the cieling by yourself and you’re back in that depression and back in that hole, that dark hole sitting in a room by yourself thinking about all the mistakes you’ve made in your life. What did that get me? Where did that get me except out of the NFL? Where did that get me? Disgrace?”

It sounds like Manziel has turned some type of corner whether it be through counseling or otherwise. We’ll be interested to hear what else he has to say.
