Last weekend was Demi Moore elected as ‘woman of the year’ at the Peggy Albrecht Friendly House’s Awards. They made use of the opportunity to speak openly about her own problems.
Friendly House provides a safe, structured and supportive environment” for women recovering from drug use. In her speech told the 55-year-old actress why the mission of this ngo is working with her so closely to heart.
“There are certain moments in our lives that determine who we are and what direction we follow. In the beginning of my career I found myself in a downward spiral of self-destruction. It didn’t matter what successes I had, I never felt good enough,” said Moore, who added “grateful” for the support of her daughters, Rumer, Scout and Tallulah.
“I had absolutely no self-esteem,” continued Moore. “And this self-destructive path that brought me quickly to a really crisispunt. At that time, offered two people, who I barely knew, me a way out. Actually, it was more of an ultimatum. They gave me a chance to get my life to refocus before I have everything to make soap helped. They saw clearly more in myself than I did. And that is why I am so grateful, because without that opportunity, without their faith in me, I would not here today for you stand.”
Moore allowed himself to mid 80’s treat for a drug – and alcholverslaving.
