She continued, "I could kick back two bottles of wine, easy, and that just became normal. I grew up in an environment where alcohol was okay ... when I got married so young, Doug and I would indulge and we'd drink quite a bit."

Although she's ditching booze, she openly admitted she will still smoke marijuana. "I do smoke weed. It gets such a bad rap from people who I feel just don't understand the medicinal purposes. I don't think it's the same as alcohol," she said.
