Three months after Amber Portwood got out of prison, she admits she’s craving drugs again.
During the Being Amber special on MTV this week, Portwood reveals to her cousin, just days after getting out of jail, that “I’m always gonna want to get high.”
“I’ve f–king been wanting to get high all day, since I woken up this morning,. I swear to god,” the TM star dishes.
The mother of five-year-old Leah, who was released three months ago from a 17 month prison stint, says that staying sober behind bars is much easier than trying to stay clean at home.
“Being free is so much different than being in prison and being sober,” Portwood said, adding that every single passing day, “It’s just so hard! I’m always gonna have triggers. I’m always gonna wanna get high. That’s never gonna go away. My best way to cope right now is hanging out with family.”
During the special, we see glimpses of Portwood’s old angry self coming out again. Let’s just hope she keeps her cool and stays out of trouble this time around.
We’re rooting for you, Amber!
