Opens Up About Her Early Strug­gles

Closer Weekly - - News Now -

SHE WENT TO RE­HAB to deal with ad­dic­tion is­sues in the 1980s, and now Demi Moore is shar­ing de­tails of her path to so­bri­ety. “Early in my ca­reer, I was spi­ral­ing down a path of real self-de­struc­tion and no mat­ter what suc­cess I had, I just never felt good enough,” Demi said at the re­cent Peggy Al­brecht Friendly House Lun­cheon in Bev­erly Hills. “I had ab­so­lutely no value for my­self. This self-de­struc­tive path very quickly brought me to a real cri­sis point.” She cred­its “two peo­ple I barely knew [who] stepped up and took a stand for me.” Those good Sa­mar­i­tans “gave me a chance to re­di­rect the course of my life be­fore I de­stroyed ev­ery­thing,” said Demi, 55. “Clearly, they saw more in me than I saw in my­self. I’m so grate­ful be­cause with­out that op­por­tu­nity, with­out their be­lief in me, I wouldn’t be stand­ing here to­day.”

“I’m grate­ful for my daugh­ters,” says Demi, with Rumer and Scout (notpic­tured: Tal­lu­lah).
