Los Angeles: Chris Klein has said that if he didn’t seek help for his alcohol problems, he “would have died.”

The 33-year-old American Pie’ star admits he likes to remind himself how close he came to death before two Dui arrests and a jail stint brought him to his senses and prompted him to get help.

“I would have died, and I think about that every single day,” Contactmusic quoted him as telling People magazine.

“It got to the point where I was a fragile shadow of the young man that came into this business. Today, I’m the luckiest guy alive,” he said.

Klein is currently celebrating 19 months of sobriety as he promotes American Pie sequel ‘American Reunion’.
