Amber Valletta has revealed his battle with drugs and alcohol in a new video.
"I suffer from a disease called addiction," the model-turned-actress told the club website MindBodyGreen.com. "I did it for as long as I can remember had."
Valletta, 40, says he was looking for ways to high since I was 8 years old, to get, because it is "inconvenient, a human being."
"I smelled marker, sniffed glue, nail polish, anything that might give me a kick," she says.

At the time she was 22 and her modeling career at its peak, abused Valletta cocaine and alcohol.
"I had a multi-million [dollars] and I showed the first day to shoot this campaign high and drunk," he admits. "I do not care, and that's just to show that addiction leads to the worst places."
The Oklahoma native says the modeling industry contributed to his illness. "I was in a shop that drugs and alcohol were broadly acceptable and given to me."
But she takes full responsibility for his actions. "I'm not a victim," she says. "I do not know everything that happened to me, the negative was to blame."
Valletta sought help at 25 because she "did not want to die."
"I was ready to lift the veil of shame and say his" I'm addicted, I can not do this alone, I will not do this alone, I'm not feeling well, can you help me? '"
After being sober for 15 years, the model-turned-actress – whose Legends New show premieres on TNT in August – hopes to inspire others through your story.
"My hope is that someone, somewhere in this room, outside this room something that will help that, and maybe bring out of the shadows and darkness of addiction and into the light is heard."
