A single mother of two spoke about the origin of her addiction, saying that the disease runs in her family. I struggled with it for a long time in different ways – first with food addiction, then love and then alcohol. During inpatient rehab, I began researching untreated trauma. Part of her journey was realizing she deserved it. Today, she has Four years of sobriety.

“I’ve never felt so comfortable in my own skin,” said Diddy, who followed her sister into the world of entertainment in the ’80s. I kept trying to fight for that seat at the table until I realized someone said, ‘If there’s no seat at the table, make your damn table’. But when I was young, I was too busy trying to be what everyone wanted… and now I feel like I’m in a generation – at 58 – [where] Finally I can say, ‘This is what I am, and if you like it, great–if not, that’s fine, go and sit at a different table,’ and I’m totally fine with that. “

She continued, “I have decided, in this generation, that I will not die of my disease. I will show my children, family and friends that you can change. You can change an entire generation by stopping right now and making those decisions.”

In her ten years away from Hollywood, Diddy also went back to school and earned her master’s degree in social work from UCLA. Part of it saw her working with non-domesticated people via Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health, which was a challenge but a good reality check.

Diddy has said that she is currently going through a period of “rebirth,” sober and starring in her son-in-law David E. Kelley’s ABC series since 2020.

“When you’re active in your disease, you’re the defining problem,” she said. “The moment you go into recovery… the day you say I want change, you become the defining possibility.”
