Stars' Struggles With Substance Abuse Revealed In New Tell-all

JAMIE LEE CURTIS, ALEC BALDWIN, JUDY COLLINS and LOU GOSSETT JR. are among a host of entertainers whose struggles with drug and alcohol addiction are detailed in a new tell-all book.
Author Christopher Kennedy Lawford shares celebrity rehab stories in his new book Moments of Clarity.
In the tome, singer Collins - now sober for 13 years - reveals, "I had been drinking around the clock for four years. My instrument - the voice that had brought me success and saved my sanity - was coming apart."
Remembering the moment before she checked into rehab, she adds: "I brought a jelly jar of vodka and drank it in the airport bathroom."
And actor Lou Gossett Jr. shares his own life-changing experience, which took place during a trip to South Africa.
Gossett reveals, "I was looking out at Robben Island, where Mandela spent 27 years in prison, and I burst into tears because there is absolutely nothing that ever happened in my life to compare to what that man went through and what his people went through. I said, 'What the hell am I doing?' I did worse to myself than any person, white or black, did to me."
The book is set to hit shelves in December (08).
