Popular Nigerian actress, Toyin Abraham has shared her experience on how she was introduced to drugs, following the end of her marriage to actor Adeniyi Johnson.
TheNewsGuru.com (TNG) reports Toyin Abraham shared her experience with BBC News Yoruba, and revealed how a close female friend introduced her to drugs.
Toyin said she found herself doing drugs with the conviction that it could help her escape her problems and alleviate the pain caused by her sorrow.
While recounting being born into a religious home, the renowned actress revealed that it was quite a shameful experience for her.
“I have done some certain things that are not really my fault because I came from a Christian home.
“When the problems started, some of my friends introduced me to drugs in such a way that I kept asking myself what led me to this.
“I didn’t plan for a broken marriage. But when it happened, I was emotionally carried away.
“Those things were empowering my negative energy. Sometimes even when I do some positive things it would just end up being negative.
“So I had to stop. Then I sought help. And I also changed some friends and people around me. I tried to be positive and I had to deal with depression and drugs,” Toyin narrated.
