JAMIE LEE CURTIS struggles on a daily basis to control cravings for prescription drugs - but her family never knew of her addiction.
Curtis says, "None of it was public. Nobody in my family knew. My husband didn't know. It was a surprise to everyone. I'd anaesthetise myself on a daily basis.
"There are days when it's hard. When my mother was ill, there was a lot of medicine around. The bottle of codeine that sat in her bathroom - don't think I didn't see it.
"And believe I've gone, 'Mmm, OK, you're not going to do that'. Because I know I'm an addict and I know I'm an alcoholic."23/11/2004 14:04
