Dennis Quaid shared that his faith played a crucial role in saving him from a life of addiction, expressing gratitude for being alive every day.

When faced with life’s trials, many of us seek solace in our faith, a path Dennis Quaid has also walked.

Grateful for each day, Quaid spoke with People about embracing life’s journey despite its challenges. His life has been marked by struggles, including a battle with addiction that followed early success in his career. Seeking help, he enrolled in what he calls “cocaine school” – rehab.

A pivotal moment came when Quaid realized he was trying to fill a void within himself. Turning to faith, he found stability and fulfillment. He wrote a song for his mother, symbolizing his newfound resolve, and delved into religious texts, including the Bible and the Quran.

“This is when I started developing a personal relationship,” Quaid explained. “Before that, I didn’t have one, even though I grew up as a Christian.”

His faith journey continues to shape his life, reflected in his upcoming album, “Fallen: A Gospel Record For Sinners,” which he describes as introspective rather than traditional church music.

Quaid recognizes the allure of substances in providing temporary joy and escape. However, he believes lasting joy comes from embracing life’s gift and our inherent relationship with God.

“We’re all seeking the joy of life, which is our gift – the relationship with God that we all have. Ultimately, it’s the joy of being alive.”
