Addiction to various substances is a problem of great complexity that afflicts hundreds of people from all spheres and social strata. For more than 10 years, Jamie Lee Curtis - known for movies such as Halloween and A Crazy Friday - dealing with a secret addiction to vicodin, an opioid used as an analgesic. Now she has been sober for 20 years. However, she admits that she is still in the process of recovery and that she will never stop being.

In an interview with Variety, the actress talked a little about her recovery process, since she recognized that she had a problem until she admitted to the public to be in rehabilitation. According to her, she started taking vicodin as a result of minor surgery. «I had a routine plastic surgery for a cameraman. I am naturally dark. If you see pictures of me as a child, it seems that I have not slept. (...) We were filming a scene with a very unpleasant fluorescent light (...) and the cameraman said "I'm not going to film it today, it has many dark circles." I felt so mortified that after making the movie I went to have surgery to remove dark circles. They gave me vicodin for something that was not so painful.

On the other hand, Jamie Lee Curtis explained being very controlled in her excesses. «I never did it when I was working. I didn't get high before five in the afternoon. Never take painkillers at 10 in the morning. It was something reserved for the late-night I like to refer to it as the "warm bath" sensation of an opioid. It's like the way you feel naturally when your body is cold and you get into the bathtub with hot water and sink into it. That is the feeling for me, what the opioid gave me, and I pursued that feeling for a long time.

According to the actress's testimony, she had several alerts that helped her understand the magnitude of her problem. The first was a woman who found her taking five vicodin pills with a glass of wine one afternoon at home. She said "you are a dead woman," and hug her. The second was an article titled Vicodin, my vicodin, which showed him that she was not the only one with a similar problem. Finally, he discovered that a friend of his also had an addiction with this substance, and he realized that, if one died, the other would have his blood in his hands forever. After that he went to a rehabilitation center and has been sober since then.

Jamie Lee believes that the power to call oneself a drug addict or alcoholic is a medal of honor, as it is to escape the shameful secret that accompanies the disease. «It is the only disease that is self-diagnosable. And calling you an alcoholic is the way to admit something that can be a profound statement for a person, which changes life.

Jamie Lee Curtis concluded her testimony with the comment

«I am sober today. Will I be sober for the rest of my life? I hope so. I will do everything I can to make it that way.

With 20 years in the process of rehabilitation, this actress has great projects at the door. Among them the following installments of the Halloween franchise: Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends, which are planned to be released in 2020 and 2021, respectively. In addition, he will participate in the new Rian Johnson Knives Out film, which will hit theaters on December 6.
