15 Famous Personalities and Their Battles Against Drug Addiction

Countless celebrities say that fame brings unmitigated stress which turns them to drinks, painkillers and other drugs as an escape from reality. Many believe that it enhances their creativity and allows them to stay awake when needed.

Whatever reasons they give to justify their insatiable cravings, opiates destroy a human being from inside and often drive them nuts.

In a 2010 interview with rolling stones he said “I accidentally got involved in heroin after smoking crack for the first time. It finally tied my shoelaces together”. Today he enjoys immense success and was the top earning actor in 2013.
  2. Russell Brand- He used to take heroin to “neutralize pain”. His struggle in his own words state “The mentality and behavior of drug addicts and alcoholics is wholly irrational until you understand that they are completely powerless over their addiction”.

  4. Angelina Jolie- In 1996 she told UK’s mirror “I have done just about every drug possible: cocaine, ecstasy, LSD and,
 my favorite, heroin”. A mother of five, she still looks stunning today.
  5. Samuel L Jackson- He overdosed three times on heroin. He told his biographer Jeff Hudson, “The third time I OD’d on heroin I quit
 the drug completely. It’s too dangerous, I was mad. I was crazed. I was not happy with who I was”.
  6. John Frusciante- He was so addicted to opiates that he was termed as borderline psychotic. Highly acclaimed guitarist of the band Red Hot Chilli Peppers, he underwent various cycles of relapse before finally quitting in 2000 and taking up meditation exercises.
  7. Lou Reed- Who can forget the typical face of “that junkie”. He has been credited with bringing heroin usage to the mainstream in the late 60s.

  9. Eminem- His drug abuse history is not a secret. He has talked about his affection for cocaine, prescription drugs and opiates in various songs. He admitted that the initial fame changed his behavior but his daughter Hailie’s birth acted as a wake-up call. Now he stays away from opiates, heroin and cocaine.
  10. P!NK- The acclaimed rock star is known for her reckless behavior. She said “Heroin is a horrible thing. I’ve seen first hand what it can do to people and it’s not pretty.
