Actress Jamie Lee Curtis, 54, is a recovering alcoholic and addict who has been clean and sober since 1999. She is dedicated to, and takes pride in, her sober lifestyle.
“I work with The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University,” she said in an interview. “I sit proudly as one of only two recovering addicts on their board.”
In an October 2012 interview with Good Housekeeping magazine, she said kicking her addicitons is “the bravest thing she has ever done and will ever do” in her life.
“Being courageous enough to acknowledge (my addictions) privately with my family and friends. Working really hard at solidifying it, getting support around it and being healthy. And then talking about it publicly,” she said. “That is the single greatest accomplishment of my life.”
