Singer Mary J Blige has urged Whitney Houston to face up to her alleged drugs problems, insisting admitting addiction is the first step on the road to recovery. FAMILY AFFAIR star Blige battled her own drug demons in the 1990s and speculates Houston's problems stem from unhappiness. Blige tells UK magazine Attitude, "You have got to want to admit that you have got a problem, first of all. Then start to deal with why that is. "It's probably more than just drugs. You get addicted to drugs and alcohol because you want to drown out all the problems in your life."
