"I got addicted to Days of our Lives [when] I was 13 or 14 years old. It was summer vacation. Both my parents were working at the time, and I was stuck around the house doing chores. Before long doing chores evolved into folding laundry every day between twelve to one watching Days of our Lives and getting really sucked into the story. I remember Bo and Hope were really heavy into the story at that time, and Patch and Kayla. I remember them more than anybody, those two couples really stuck in my mind. So there I was glued to the TV from twelve to one everyday. And by no means there’s anything wrong with that. But when you’re a thirteen or fourteen-year-old boy, a little stigma is attached. I thought, 'This is something I’ll need to put away when school starts.' And that’s exactly what happened. The only reason I quit was because I had to go back to school."
