‘It’s do or die for me’ Danniella Westbrook admits she’ll die if she relapses again
Danniella Westbrook has admitted that she’ll die because of her cocaine addiction if she ever relapses again.
The former EastEnders star, who has formerly sober for 12 years before her relapse in 2014, has confessed that another relapse could mean her death.
The 45-year-old, who’s now five months clean, is opening up about her drug problem as part of The Sun Online’s End Of The Line campaign, which ‘aims to bust the myth that cocaine is a glamorous, consequence-free drug’.
She told the publication: “I’ve got another relapse in me, but I don’t have another recovery.
“It’s do or die for me. I know I’m one relapse away from dying.”
The star’s most recent relapse was in 2017, when she started using cocaine after a botched dental surgery, to cope with the pain.
“I was dabbing cocaine around my mouth and rubbing it in to numb the pain,” she said. “I had three operations in seven weeks. I’m an addict and the wheels fell off.”
Speaking on The Jeremy Kyle Show earlier this year, Danniella confessed that she consumed drugs while she was pregnant with her son Kai – even during his birth.
“I could have killed him yeah, and my daughter when I was pregnant with her”, she said.
“I tried for years to make it up to them by buying them things.”
Danniella has also confessed that it was thanks to Jeremy Kyle that she went into rehab, and he’s the reason she’s alive.
“If Jeremy hadn’t reached out to me I would be dead. When he saw me for the first time out of rehab he had tears in his eyes. I told him he’d saved my life.
“I was six and a half stone. I didn’t realise how bad I was. I looked like a 70-year-old woman, like I was already dead.
“Cocaine ruined my life. It hurt my health and stripped me of my personality and my self-respect and self-worth.”
