Cheyenne Jackson is sharing a very "vulnerable" message with fans.

"VULNERABLE is what I'm feeling today. After nearly a decade of sobriety I fell off the wagon. I've been carrying a lot of shame," Cheyenne wrote on Instagram along with a selfie while sitting in his car. "Scared to share it. But I know it can help someone so here I go. I didn't want to disappoint anyone who has looked up to me as a sober person so I've been just burying it away."

"I took my eye off the ball. I stopped doing what I needed to do to keep myself on the path of my personal integrity." Cheyenne continued. "I could blame it on Covid. I could blame it on the state of the world. Mass shootings. A nation divided. The death of my co-star. But the truth is, I thought I had it all handled."

He added, "I thought 'I got this.' But I don't. I am a work in progress. Always. Thank you to my support system. Thank you to @jamieleecurtis and so many others who have been there for me. It means everything to me. If you are out there struggling, you are not alone and there is a solution. I love you. And I love myself today and that feels really good to say. #progressnotperfection."

After sharing his message, Cheyenne's husband Jason Landau took to the comments to send him some love.

"Your power, your truth and your willingness is why I fell in love with you. Today I love you even more," Jason wrote.

A few years ago, Cheyenne shared another candid post on Instagram, revealing that he'd had five hair transplant surgeries over the past 14 years.
