The efforts to turn his life around are paying off, Disick revealed to People at a Liquid Sundays event at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut. The 31-year-old hosted the event with his unofficial sister-in-law Khloé Kardashian, sipping bottled water and interacting with fans at the VIP area.
“I’m good,” Disick gushed. “I’ve had ups and downs. Every time you can better yourself it’s a good thing, and a positive thing.”
Disick’s terrifying hospitalization came just months following the devastating deaths of both his parents, who died within three months of each other. The loss of his parents may have been too much for Disick, who likely succumbed to the numbing comfort of alcohol as a result of that pain.

Since then, he has reportedly sought help to cope with the losses so he will be around for his pregnant girlfriend Kourtney Kardashian, their four-year-old son, Mason, and their two-year-old daughter, Penelope.
“I’m excited to just be feeling good and living healthy, eating better, exercising more and doing whatever I can to get by,” said Disick.
“He held a bottle of water in his hand for the entire party,” a source told Radar Online.

Despite his positive comments to People and teetotaling behavior, Disick reportedly didn’t seem all that thrilled to be at the Foxwoods event.
“Khloé was upbeat and friendly, but Scott looked totally and utterly miserable,” the insider claims. “He was not in the mood to talk to anyone, and just seemed so uncomfortable.”

It’s likely a difficult transition from drinking like a fiend to total sobriety for the party-loving man.
“The pool party was totally crazy,” the Radar Online insider said. “There was alcohol flowing everywhere! People were falling down drunk, and girls went in trips of two or three to the bathroom.
“It seems very strange that someone who wants to stay sober for his girlfriend would surround himself with booze and party girls,” the source adds.
