Jamie Lee Curtis Bravely Opens Up About Her Sobriety

In a recent interview, the incredible actress Jamie Lee Curtis courageously shared her story of overcoming addiction and achieving sobriety. At the age of 64, she reflected on her history with opioid addiction, revealing that she feels “incredibly lucky” to have conquered it 24 years ago.

During the interview, Curtis revealed that her darkest moments went unnoticed by others. She explained, “My worst day was almost invisible to anyone else.” She considers herself fortunate not to have made irreversible, regrettable decisions while under the influence. Curtis empathetically acknowledged that countless women have had their lives shattered by drugs and alcohol, not because they were terrible individuals, but because they struggled with addiction. “I am incredibly lucky that that wasn’t my path,” she added.

Sobriety brought Curtis newfound clarity and a fresh perspective on life. She candidly admitted to being addicted to opiates and enjoying the “opiate buzz.” Furthermore, she revealed the terrifying truth: “If fentanyl were as easily accessible on the street as it is today, I’d be dead.”

Her addiction remained a secret until 1999, during which she led a double life of theft and deception without anyone suspecting a thing. However, her incredible journey to sobriety has since become her most significant accomplishment, enabling her to embrace an extraordinary life.

Curtis emphasized that sobriety has been the key to her freedom and the ability to be truly herself. “I look in the mirror. I see myself. I accept myself. And I move on because you know what? The world is filled with things we need to do,” she shared passionately. Breaking the cycle of addiction that has plagued generations in her family has become her mission.

Tragically, Curtis experienced the devastating loss of her brother Nicholas, who tragically passed away from a heroin overdose at the age of 21. Her father, the renowned actor Tony Curtis, also battled with alcohol and drug abuse.

“Getting sober remains my single greatest accomplishment,” Curtis declared with unyielding determination. She views it as more significant than her marriage, her children, or any level of professional success. Her bold journey towards sobriety deserves all our admiration and support.
