Dave Coulier has opened up about how his sobriety helped him grieve the death of his brother, father and close friend, Bob Saget.

In a clip obtained by PEOPLE, the 62-year-old Full House star said he couldn't be more thankful for his sobriety during the tricky time period, in an episode of the Tamron Hall Show.

"I definitely went through the sorrow hat trick, so to speak," Coulier said as he spoke about how he coped with the loss of his brother Dan, father Dave and friend Saget.

"My brother took his own life, and he was actually the funniest person I've ever known," the star said. "My brother, Dan. I was the one who found him at my dad's house down in the basement. A part of me died that day as well, because I really loved my brother."

"I made jokes to my friends and family and the line was, 'Boy, I sure picked the wrong time in my life to stop drinking,'" Coulier added.

"And people would laugh at that knowing I was sober. And then my father passed away a couple of months ago, and I got to say all of the things that a son could say to his father about how proud I was."

The actor also revealed that he had conversed with his Full House co-star, Saget, on the day he died.

"He was texting me and making me laugh, and we were texting back and forth and making each other laugh very, very hard," Coulier recalled. "The last thing I said to him was, 'Have a great show tonight.' That was my last connection with Bob."

Coulier said that being sober throughout it all helped him to truly process the loss he had experienced in such a short period of time.

Earlier this year, the actor announced that he had been sober for two years.

"I thought to myself after those three lives were gone, I would've never been able to feel all of that if I was drinking, and it was really important to me to just feel that sorrow," said Coulier.

"There was nothing masking that, there were no layers that were covering that up. I thought to myself, 'This is what I should be doing. I should be feeling this pain. I should be feeling this incredible love for these people.'

"With alcohol, I was covering all that up," he added. "It was a real stark reminder to me that alcohol has been stealing all of those moments in my life for a long, long time."
