During the presentation of the Woman of the Year Award in Beverly Hills, Demi Moore had long been in a downward spiral and did not care about anything.

Moore was honored with the award by the Peggy Albrecht Friendly House, which ensures that women can work with them on their recovery towards a life without alcohol or drugs, writes People.

Moore said she had struggled with herself at the beginning of her career. “I was self-destructive and despite the success I had with my work, I never felt good enough, I came to a point where it was not possible anymore, when two people I barely knew, offered me the opportunity to work myself, actually it was more of an ultimatum: now or never. “

The actress is still grateful for this opportunity. “I could change the course of my life before I broke everything in. They apparently saw more in me than I saw in myself, without which I would not have been here now,” said Moore, who did not go into what exactly her problems were.
