Cameron Douglas was released from prison in 2016 after more than seven years in prison for possession and distribution of drugs. The sentence was five years, but increased when they discovered him selling drugs to the inmates. Two of them were in solitary confinement and could not receive visitors. Now, father Michael Douglas and son talked to People magazine about the difficult moments they experienced because of Cameron's addiction. For the veteran interpreter it was not easy: "Life became a succession of crisis. I thought I was going to lose it."

Cameron started drinking, smoking pot and getting into trouble as a teenager. But in a short time, the eldest son of the Hollywood icon was abusing cocaine and heroin. At 20 he carried a gun, consumed non-stop and traffic methamphetamine to solve this self-destructive spiral. "I hated that drugs would destroy my life, but I just couldn't stop," Cameron confesses, now 40.

Both his father and his mother, former model Diandra Luker, tried to help her son, but without success. "There were times when hope diminished ... and then it was just a train outside the station," lamented the award-winning 75-year-old actor to People. "Life became a series of crises. I thought I was going to lose it."

Michael Douglas and Luker divorced in 2000 after 23 years of marriage and the separation was one of the most expensive in Hollywood, with which she received more than 30 million dollars.

In 2009 an undercover operation of the DEA threw him behind bars. He was sentenced to five years in jail, which was extended to more than seven for possession and sale while incarcerated. One of her lawyers, Jennifer Ridha, with whom she had a romantic relationship, was the one who passed Xanax pills, an antidepressant.

His good behavior allowed him to reduce his sentence, leaving in 2016, two years ahead of schedule. Today is another man, he says. Together with his girlfriend Viviane Thibes they had a daughter, Lua and it seems that he began to sit his head. "When you get this far, there are only two options: prison and death," said Cameron, who feels a deep gratitude that his family has never given up on him.

The time he spent behind bars led him to a life of sobriety.

Cameron is raising her beloved daughter with Thiebes, 41, a yoga instructor, and working to restart her acting career. Determined to support other addicts to "seek help, and perhaps save a life," Cameron wrote his memoirs, "Long way home," which are published on Tuesday, October 22.

In a part of the memoirs, extracted by People, Cameron talks about Michael wanting to keep his distance before the son was imprisoned, worried about how the young man's addiction would affect his wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and their two children, Dylan and Carys.

"I have young children and a wife that I need to protect. This is not fair to them," said Michael Douglas, as written by Cameron. "You don't love me anymore, Dad?" Cameron asked. "Of course I love you. But I'm not going to cultivate a relationship with you, because I think you're going to die. I've been seeing a therapist about it ... I think you're going to suffer an overdose, or that someone is going to kill you, or you're going to kill someone. I'm trying to prepare myself emotionally. "

For his part, Michael Douglas turned 75 in September, the same day his current wife, actress Catherine Zeta-Jones, blew the 50 candles. Both are parents of the teenagers Dylan, 19, and Carys, 16. They have been together for two decades overcoming many obstacles and against all the forecasts, and can now boast having survived a marriage crisis, to the sex addiction of the , to a difficult disease and the revelation of certain sexual intimacies that had them in the public eye.
