People who are or were once addicted to drugs have their own battles. There are those who never expected that they will be so addicted to the substance while others deliberately wanted it to happen as a form of escape from reality. A drug-addicted person can give hundreds of reasons to justify what he or she has done. This is often found out from people who decided to open up about the issue. Jamie Lee Curtis is also having a big revelation.
Jamie Lee Curtis has opened up about her battle with drug addiction and the effect it had on her relationship with her family. In an interview with Variety for its “Recovery Issue”, the Halloween actor discussed everything from how she became addicted to painkillers after a plastic surgery procedure to her continued efforts to stay sober and how she once took drugs alongside her movie star father, Tony Curtis.

The 60-year-old stated that addiction runs in her family, revealing that her brother, Nicholas, died of a heroin overdose when he was 21-year-old, and that her father also struggled.
“I knew my dad had an issue because I had an issue and he and I shared drugs,” Curtis said.
“There was a period of time where I was the only child that was talking to him. I did cocaine and freebased once with my dad. But that was the only time I did that, and I did that with him.”
