‘Coz some celebrities’ before and after snapshots drive home the message in a way that a million statutory warnings can’t.
While we don’t mean to preach, if a picture speaks a thousand words, then here are six thousand distinct words that’ll do the job for us:
There was a time when was this vivacious beauty was poised to take over Hollywood. A long tryst with cocaine & alcohol later, she lost all of her vivacity, her beauty and most of her common sense.
Once an up-and-coming star, her substance abuse has now compelled the actress to spend her days hiding behind garish pastel wigs that could give Nicki Minaj nightmares.
The OC star might have had her finger in a number of pies, but the film, television and music offers all fell through once she traded her moneymaker for some non-prescription drugs.
Sadly, there hasn’t been much of Courtney left to love once she gave in to her crack addiction. She may have regained control of life and has sworn to stay sober ever since 2007, however her hair and skin are still trying to catch up.
There was a time when the heroin chic model was the ‘it’ girl of tinsel town around, and her cocaine problem is the reason why this sentence started with the past tense. After a huge scandal though, the model turned her life around and is now trying to regain lost ground.
While it might be unfair to comment on her appearance given that the American Pie actress has been diagnosed with eating disorder, we are pretty sure adding alcohol & drugs drugs to the mix wasn’t part of the doctor’s original prescription.
Which celeb do you think should never have sacrificed her looks for drugs and alcohol? Sound off in the comments box below!
