So the story goes, back in 2001, Ben Affleck had a bit of a problem with the booze. It got so bad to the point that the A-lister was forced to check himself into a rehabilitation center to lay off the bottle. And luckily, he did get help. But nine years later could it be that Affleck might be losing his battle?

When Ben checked into Promises rehab in 2001, his publicist said, “Ben is a self-aware and smart man who had decided that a fuller life awaits him without alcohol. He has chosen to seek out professional assistance, and is committed to traveling a healthier road with the support of his family, friends and fans.”

But is it true that Ben has fallen off the sober bandwagon since his rehab stay? Well, this past weekend, Affleck was allegedly seen drinking vodka at a Sundance Film Festival party. is reporting that at the party for his new movie, Affleck “immediately sat down at a VIP table and grabbed the bottle of Absolut in front of him and poured a drink.” Does this mean that he hasn’t been able to keep his boozing and gambling problems under wraps? Hmmm, so what does this really mean?

Things in Ben’s life are a tad different than they were back then. He does have a wife and a couple kiddos to think about here. Hopefully he doesn’t slump back into addiction and that all this talk of him allegedly falling off the bandwagon are just rumors.
