Actress and singer  Jessica Simpson,  41, posted a photo on social media taken four years ago while battling alcohol and pill addiction. 

- This person from the early morning of November 1, 2017, is an unrecognizable version of me. At this moment, I know that I should have allowed myself to return my light, show victory over my inner battle of self-esteem and encourage this world with penetrating clarity - Jessica began the description below the photo where she looks like another person.

- To achieve this, I had to stop drinking alcohol because it made my mind and heart circulate in the same direction. Honestly, I was exhausted. I can’t believe it’s been 4 years! I think that's a good thing. Ha. There is so much stigma around the word alcoholism or the label of an alcoholic - the singer complained.

- The real job I had to do in my life was actually to accept failure and pain. Alcoholism was not really a problem. I was the problem, I didn’t love myself. Today I have come to terms with my fears and accepted the parts of my life that are sad. I am free - she concluded.
