Cheryl Burke opened up about her alcoholism on Facebook Watch's "Red Table Talk."
She spoke to co-hosts Jada Pinkett Smith and Adrienne Banfield Norris about her sobriety journey.
Burke called herself a functioning addict and said she used alcohol to numb herself.
She has been sober for four years but has been experiencing challenges because of her divorce.
The "DWTS" dancer chose not to date but to prioritize herself and her journey.
She celebrated four years of sobriety with a TikTok video.
Burke told Elizabeth Vargas that she used to drink every day to get through.
She planned to leave "DWTS" after 26 seasons and following her elimination from season 31.
The pro dancer said her reason was that she wanted to be okay with life's uncertainties.
