David Arquette: 'I've been drinking a lot'

David Arquette is heartbroken and has been using alcohol as a way of coping with the trauma of his recent separation from Courteney Cox, he said Wednesday.

During the long on-air chat on Howard Stern's radio show, Arquette, 39, said that his psychologist, whom he sees once a week, believes he's having a "nervous breakdown."

"I've been drinking a lot," said Arquette. "(But I don't) want to go into all that, because it's really a personal, traumatic thing."

"Everybody's worried and concerned about me," he added. "When I drink, I become a maniac."

Arquette said his alcohol use had gotten out of hand so he's "definitely not drinking for a long time."
