For those of you who don’t recognize the name, Jodie Sweetin played Stephanie Tanner on the hit show Full House. She’s had a very turbulent life since the show ended and is writing a memoir (titled “Unsweetined”) about her struggle with drug and alcohol dependence.
“I wanted to prove that I wasn’t the girl from Full House, that I could get more trashed than everyone else,”
Her first drink was at age 14 while attending co-star Candice Cameron’s wedding. She passed out in the bathroom and right then realized:
I was Jodie Sweetin and I was an alcoholic.”
According to the article, she started out with alcohol and progressed to other drugs such as cocaine and crystal meth. She even fesses up to driving drunk with her infant daughter, Zoie, in the car.
I hope she’s gotten herself sober and maybe that’s a step in her recovery – sharing her experience in a book?
