Jada Pinkett Smith’s Facebook series, Red Table Talk, has taken a real emotional turn. In the last episode titled “Addiction,” the actress, August Alsina and Jada’s mum all talked about the things they were addicted to.
Jada revealed that her first addiction was sex. “My sort of addictions jump. They jump around,” she said. “When I was younger, I definitely think I had a sex addiction of some kind, yes, that everything could be fixed by sex. You know what I’m saying?”
She said her next addiction was the gym, and she found herself there constantly. But her real “rock bottom” moment was when she realized her addiction to alcohol. “…I was in the house by myself and I had those two bottles of wine and was going for the third bottle,” she explained. “And I was like, ‘Now hold up. You’re in this house by yourself going onto your third bottle of wine? You might have a problem.’”
“So I went cold turkey — that’s the thing about me: I can go cold turkey — I am a binger, and I always have to watch myself and I can just get obsessed with things,” she said. “It’s not what you’re doing, but how you’re with it — why you’re doing it. It’s the behaviour that’s attached to it because if you want to have a lot of sex, that’s great, but why are you having all that sex? That’s what you’ve got to look at.”
