Whoopi Goldberg Confronts Past Addiction In Candid Memoir

Recently, Whoopi Goldberg opened up about her battle with addiction in her new memoir called Bits and Pieces: My Mother, My Brother, and Me.”

Goldberg said, “During the day, it was offices for drug rehab counselors. In the evening, it was a place where young people could come together and keep themselves from falling into bad things. I had already fallen in and out of bad things. But I’d show up and listen to people talking about why they did what they did and how they got free of it.”

She continued, “I thought I could handle the cocaine thing. It didn’t seem dangerous. Everybody seemed to have access to it, even on TV and movie sets.”

She added, “Finally, I had one of those slap-in-the-face moments that make you see pretty f–king clearly that you’ve hit bottom.”
