Since sobering up after his separation from Courteney Cox, David
Arquette is coming clean about how early drinking became a part of his
life.


“When I had my first drink of beer, I must have been four years
old," he tells Oprah Winfrey during a chat on her talk show. "I was
down in the basement with my dad and beer was there and I just grabbed
it and drank it. And I remember that. It's one of my earliest
memories."


It wasn’t much longer until he tried it again: "I seriously
started drinking probably when I was about 12," he says. "I stole pot
from my father when I was eight years old." Arquette also reveals that it
was Cox and his sister, Patricia Arquette, who staged an intervention
after New Year’s that convinced the actor to go into rehab.
