Hindsight is 20/20, and at 42 Jada Pinkett-Smith has clarity on her past addictions.
The actress and singer celebrated her 42nd birthday on September 18, and she reflected on Facebook the wisdom that age has brought.
"What I learned about myself is this," she told her fans. "(W)hen 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 these days, "at 42, I have my wisdom, my heart and my conscience as the only tools to overcome life's inevitable obstacles."
Some of those inevitable obstacles may include press coverage of her marriage to superstar Will Smith. The couple have been the subject of a number of rumors over the years, including recent ones that they were headed toward a divorce or in an open marriage.
"Will and I can both do whatever we want, because we trust each other to do so," Pinkett-Smith said earlier this year. "This does not mean that we have an open relationship. This means that we have a grown one."
While she might have handled such speedbumps differently in the past, these days, Pinkett-Smith says she has "the tools" to be "a good problem solver ... and I am damn proud."
She was addicted to being naked with other women 7x / week- but now only 3-4x per week. That no videos have yet turned up is quite disappointing....
Take care hon
easy to have an addiction when you can afford it...try having one when you can't. Now THAT is newsworthy
hm. like having a shopping addiction when you can't 'afford' it? what the hell are you talking about.
my funds are blocked what you see is too get the hack-you ask people for deeds and 89.00...
no resume, no job...worry about that hon...we have it all in control on this side of the computer kay?
I am tired of how proud people are of quitting an addiction. There are millions of wonderful people who never touch drugs. People who have back pain and suffer rather than become addicted because they have self respect and kids. I know it is hard to quit but that is why you do not take illegal drugs or over prescribed drugs.
Seriously? True addiction, NOT vice...but true addiction...is a serious and life threatening disease. There are people who get through life without substance abuse? Great for them. But some people have to go through this. I did. I was on oxycontin and heroin and alcohol for years to get through guilt and job loss, and deaths in my family. I'm not proud of it. I turned everyone in my life against me, but i got help because I WANTED TO BE BETTER. You better be DAMN proud of people who get clean in spite of being told they would never change.
Your ignorance in this comment peals out like a bell. I'd suggest you get it right before you mouth off from your soap box.
JJagger. That is not fair of you to say. How do you know the struggles other people have and NOT do drugs? Drugs may be a temporary easy way out, but it calls all kinds of people and some resist with all they have and make it. Good for you for quitting, you should be proud. And good for whomeever out there faces hardships and never starts, they should be proud too.
That ended that...didn't it.
drug user still walking without ever being arrested, and been paid millions which went to funnel illegal activity, meanwhile others harrassed over jaywalking....
I have another galaxy your a bimbo
Funny but she left out money, when you are filthy rich you get a pampered rehab. Most addicts don't.
She was never an addict – she's an attention seeker just like her loser scientologist husband.
we are interested YOUR illegal behavior WITHOUT permission. granted by ME.
Have to admit your story is "colorful" lol, but I'm sure it's only the bad points and you also probably made a lot of good experiences also. Hang in there and maybe focus on your health and yourself for a change, you can't change anyone else . Take care

She made Will look stupid again in front of eveyrone....the funny part is you still do it.
Bristol Palin's next novel should be hitting bookstore shelves soon. Her recent memoirs about her life as a drunk, pregnant teenager sold an astounding 1,500 copies and buoyed by this success she has worked very hard to write the sequel. Her adoring public expects no less because after all, the Palin family is known for not being quitters.
And related news in the literary world has Sarah Palin hosting another book signing event this weekend. Tens of people are expected to show up.
YAAAAWN. She boring. At least mention WHICH drug you were on. Or admit that your a Scientologist.
Wow, she plays around in an open marriage? Doesn't she have kids? I wonder how discrete she is. I'd like to laminate her womb so Will has to slosh around my sloppy seconds.
