Singer Michelle Heaton shares shocking photos of her addiction nightmare

42-year-old Liberty X star, Michelle Heaton has shared shocking photos of her addiction nightmare alongside a heartbreaking message.

Heaton issued a warning to her followers as she revealed that she was on a three-year booze and cocaine binge. She revealed that she was saved by an intervention from showbiz pals led by Katie Price.

The British pop star and TV personality who hailed many of the government’s proposals to tackle addiction, however stated that punishing addicts is not the answer.

She said;

“This disease does not discriminate. I never knew what an addict was until I almost died.

“I wanted to wait till I had the facts before I wrote this and I was am armed with the facts of today’s announcement on the government’s plans to tackle addiction.

“I welcome any efforts by governments to address this issue that affects too many families.

“Tackling the suppliers and helping those in addictions is amazing. I’m so pleased to hear of the extra treatment places, they are sorely needed.

“I’ll be honest – I didn’t have the money to get help, friends and family lent me that and I possibly wouldn’t be here now had they not as I needed the treatment within days.

“I’m hoping I’ll hear the word education lots in the coming days… Early education in schools is sorely needed and this is something I really feel strongly about.

“This disease does NOT discriminate. It affects people in poverty and people with money.

“Once an addict we will stop at NOTHING to get the next hit, fix, high! Whatever that may be.

“Harsher punishments will unfortunately not stop us real addicts it will drive us to be more manipulative in our addictions! It’s a disease of the mind and the body.

“I never knew what an addict was until I almost died. Had you given me a warning or called me up and fined me when I was in the madness I wouldn’t have stopped.

“We need to also concentrate on STOPPING it before it grips us. Where do addictions begin?

“Brought up that way, followed parents, had no choice, bad relationships. The list is endless.

I”t’s NOT a middle class problem it’s a you and me problem. It’s the kid who never fit in, it’s the wife at home bored.

“This disease does NOT discriminate. There is no poster boy or girl for this.

“Punishment in itself is not an answer as it just ignores where and how to tackle it before it begins!

“Education, help lines and more information is needed most! From, a grateful recovered addict!”

She concluded the message, writing:

“Michelle Heaton, age 42 no bad upbringing, didn’t grow up in poverty & certainly no middle class issues and never set out to be an addict.

“I never knew what an addict was until I almost died. Had you given me a warning or called me up and fined me when I was in the madness I wouldn’t have stopped.

“Information, the meetings and the 12 step programme got me sober! And guess what? It’s free! My passion now is giving back and helping others get sober and clean.”
