Kerry Katona has recalled how her previous issues with drug use almost put her into an early grave.
The former Atomic Kitten star, 40, admitted that she was brought back to life ‘by the angels’ after a drug binge almost cost her her life.
In recent months, the reality TV star has spoken out about her addiction in a bid to offer insight and support to those who are currently struggling with the same life-altering issues.
Although she’s managed to completely turn her life around and has enjoyed 13-years of sobriety, Kerry hasn’t been able to forget the incredibly dark time in her life.
In a new interview with The Sun, the mother-of-five has detailed how her addiction almost killed her as she suffered with suicidal thoughts during the lowest point of her life.
While she thought about ending her life, Kerry instead decided to numb her inner turmoil by binging on drugs which led her to suffering extreme fits where she would convulse and froth from the mouth.
Kerry shared: “I think the suicidal thoughts were my lowest, it felt very selfish of me being a mother. I thought I never wanted to do that to my kids… But I went about it in a different way, I went about it if I do loads of drugs then I’ll have fits.
“I remember I’d have these fits, I’d froth, my eyes rolled back, I think I just completely died but something brought me back.
“It was the most wonderful feeling; it sounds so weird but it was like being surrounded by angels bringing me back. It was the most wonderful feeling ever, I kept trying to do it because it was the only time I really felt loved but that was a really selfish thing because my kids could not have a mum now.”
The TV star went on to admit that during the dark period in her life, cocaine was her ‘best friend’.
Thankfully, Kerry was strong enough to turn her life around, and although she suffered immensely through the turmoil of her addiction, she’s insists that she’s grateful she went through it because it made her the person she is today.
“Things happen for a reason, I’ve been through what I’ve been through to tell this story today – I don’t regret any of it,” the star shared.
Following the incredibly traumatic time, Kerry finally decided to get the help she needed and checked herself into rehab in a bid to help her kick her addictions.
