Former Black Eyed Peas member Fergie opened up about her most difficult period while battling addiction to crystal meth. She told the British publication iNews, “I was (suffering from) chemically-induced psychosis and dementia. I was hallucinating on a daily basis. It took a year after getting off that drug for the chemicals in my brain to settle so that I stopped seeing things. I’d just be sitting there, seeing a random bee or bunny.”
Though she had once described her split from the habit as “the hardest boyfriend I ever had to break up with,” she has come a long way and says that the rock bottom moment was also a learning experience. “The drugs thing, it was a hell of a lot of fun… until it wasn’t. But you know what, I thank the day it happened to me. Because that’s my strength, my faith, my hope for something better,” she said.
