Jada Pinkett Smith has revealed she battled addiction when she was younger because she struggled to deal with her 'life issues'.
Jada Pinkett Smith once battled with addiction.
The 42-year-old actress, who has a son, Jaden, 15, and daughter Willow, 12, with her husband Will Smith, has revealed she developed a problem and began relying on ''many addictions, of several kinds'' to help her deal with her emotional issues when she was younger.
The 'Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted' star opened up about her past struggles in a new post on her Facebook page to celebrate her birthday on September 18, writing: ''What I learned about myself is this, when I was younger I was not a good problem solver, meaning I had a very difficult time with dealing with my problems in life.
''I had many addictions, of several kinds, to deal with my life issues, but today, at 42, I have my wisdom, my heart and my conscience as the only tools to overcome life's inevitable obstacles. I have become a good problem solver with those tools, and I am damn proud.''
Jada did not say whether she was addicted to alcohol or drugs but she said she is now strong enough to overcome her problems.
She added: ''What I hope is that we all continue to gain healthy understanding that life is really about solving problems, and also about us learning to become masters at solving them.''
