TORONTO, CANADA (NBC) - Toronto's embattled Mayor Rob Ford says he is taking a break from his re-election campaign to seek help for alcohol abuse.

There was a video posted of Mayor Ford leaving his home in Toronto Thursday.

In a statement, Ford said "I have a problem with alcohol and the choices i have made while under the influence."

The statement was issued after the Toronto Globe and Mail reported on a new video that allegedly shows Ford smoking crack in his sister's basement.

Ford was under intense pressure to step down last year after Canadian media reported on a video that appeared to show him smoking the same drug.

He has refused so far to leave office despite being stripped of most of his powers as Mayor.
