Jada Pinkett Smith battled sex addiction when she was younger

Jada-Pinkett-Smith-sex

Smith also revealed in Monday's episode she would go through periods of developing an addiction to certain actions, including the gym and alcohol. "That was devastating. I abused drugs for over 20 years".

Smith, 46, opened up about her issues during her latest Red Table Talk on Facebook.

During an appearence on TIDAL's Rap Radar on the 5th of July, he said, "I've been to the top of money, I've had all the sex that I've ever wanted, and I've had all of the adoration".

"There's a stigma and a stereotype attached to addiction that makes it hard for people to seek the help that they need", she said. I had already lost my mother, I had already lost a husband, I had already lost another relationship. "You might have a problem.' So I went cold turkey".

She said that, when she was younger, she believed that everything "could be fixed by sex", and it was only when she got older that she realized it couldn't.

"My sort of addictions jump, they jump around", Jada explained to her mom Adrienne Banfield Norris, who battled a heroin addiction for almost 20 years. 'When I was younger, I definitely think I had a sex addiction of some kind, yes, that everything could be fixed by sex.

"I was in the house by myself and I had those two bottles of wine and was going for the third bottle", she said. And I was like, "Now hold up". "She couldn't make it on time to pick me up from school, or she's nodding off, falling asleep in the middle of something".

Though the conversation was extremely touching and, at times, difficult, Banfield-Norris said she hopes it will help others who are dependent on harmful substances or activities to seek help.

'I don't think I used toys with a partner, but I did use toys a lot alone.

"I went cold turkey", Jada explained. It's not what you're doing but how you're with it. "That's what you gotta look at", Jada said. "It's just made me realize that really great people just get caught up". "I had this man come back in my life and he said to me, 'I heard you had been into treatment, ' and I started communicating with this person and we had an opportunity for a relationship that I thought would not happen. You can create so much pleasure, you constantly want it".
