EMOSYONAL si JM de Guzman sa bago niyang post sa Instagram kung saan binalikan niya ang pinagdaanan noong siya ay lulong pa sa ipinagbabawal na gamot. Partikular na inalala ng aktor ang araw na binitbit siya ng ilang kalalakihan palabas ng tinutuluyang hotel para dalhin sa isang rehabilitation facility.
“I remember 6 years ago, was sleeping in a hotel room. 5 or 6 huge guys woke me up. They had access [to] my room, pinned my head, elbows, knees, and chest while I watched the other guy inject something [into] my right shoulder.
“I felt weak in an instant. They carried me, took me out of the hotel in a stretcher. Outside the hotel since my head is tied, I see in my peripheral my aunt, mom crying like someone died.
“I cried too and shouted don’t let them take me. Fell asleep for 3 days inside the aero med van. Woke up alone in a small room with steel bars. Stayed there for a month. Then transferred me to rehab and stayed there for 2 years. This is because I relapsed after a 1 month basement and 1 year stretch in my first rehab,” pagbabalik tanaw ng aktor.
Bagama’t nakalabas na ng rehab ay aminado ang aktor na patuloy pa rin nilalabanan ang adiksyon para hindi na siya bumalik sa dati.
“This haunts me everyday in my sleep or while wide awake. For years I suffered. I was imprisoned by pain and hate. Patched it up with a drug that made me lose everything I love.
“Thank you God for everything. I’m not alone anymore. O pray for happier and peaceful days to come. Maybe I’m sharing this to remind other people to stop f**** with my peace or anyone’s peace… I don’t want to be that person anymore,” wika pa niya.
Nagsimulang magbisyo si JM when he was only 18 years old.
“Akala ko makakatulong siya sa akin as a person, as an actor at first, but nung nag-rehab ako nahukay sa akin na I have issues since I was a kid na like I was bullied when I was really young.
“So wala na akong self-esteem or confidence at that time. Taking drugs gives me power,” sabi pa ng Init Sa Magdamag actor.
