Mary J. Blige Thankful To God For Her Recovery

Mary J. Blige is a successful singer, but she also struggled with the disease of alcohol addiction. Blige credits God, prayer and her husband’s love for her recovery. “It was bigger than me, and it was definitely going to kill me. So I was like, this is it, and let’s go. I remember sitting on my bed. I swear, I don’t know what death feels like, but I felt like my spirit was trying to leave my body.” Blige has been sober for some time and will soon be featured in the movie “Rock of Ages.” Blige does not discount that her recovery from alcohol addiction was not an easy road.
“It was will power. It was prayer. It was really hard. But, I care so much about him [my husband], I didn’t want to be just this alcoholic burden on him. He doesn’t deserve for me to be some, you know, slum-bucket alcoholic, and so I took responsibility and I cleaned up, as much as I could. But it was hard.”
