Jamie Campbell Bower of Stranger Things offers a powerful message as he discusses addiction ...

Stranger Things will be spoilt soon.

Jamie Campbell Bower, who played Vecna in Netflix's hit program Stranger Things, has openly disclosed his addiction. Over a decade ago, the actor wrote on Twitter to express his "active addiction."

"I was addicted to myself and those around me that I loved the most. It got so bad that eventually I was admitted to a mental hospital. I am now 7 1/2 years clean and sober. I have made many mistakes in my life," Campbell Bower said.

"But each day is a chance to start again. Atone for mistakes and grow. For anyone who wakes up thinking 'oh god not again,' I promise you there is a way. Im so grateful to be where I am, Im so grateful to be sober. Im so grateful to be."
