Stevie Nicks, Stevie Nicks says Betty Ford, former first lady who died last Friday, saved her life. Fleetwood Mac singer went to the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, California in 1985 for her cocaine addiction. Nicks said that during her stay in rehab, Ford came to talk to others about their own experience with addiction.
“I thought, ‘God, if Betty Ford can come through this, I can come through it, too,’” Nicks said, quoted by CNN. “Talk about being famous and be in rehab!” Oh, no, I can not do that, I’m too famous “- well, let’s go! She was the first lady of the United States. So really, really made my need fix my strongest. ”
If it were not for Betty Ford, Nicks says she would be dead. Since he has overcome her addiction, he has put all the songs he has written to ford.
Nicks said, “Betty Ford was not easy. I call it Boot Camp Betty Ford. And it was easy to four weeks to go, and no one any special treatment there. It is difficult, but it is a kind of brilliant in its hardness. Its kind of what I imagine it feels to be in the army. There are four bedrooms, and there are 20 people in each room, and everyone has their tasks, and everyone maintains that the construction of a beautiful landscape, and the dishes, make coffee, empty the carpet – and she insisted on the exterior, grass, -. Duck pond is the center, and you better take care of it. ”
Although it was a stressful period of time for her, Nicks said it worked.
“Two weeks, you start thinking, ‘Oh my God, I feel better”, “CNN quoted as saying Nicks.” I think her family will carry out, as it is now her legacy. And if I were her child, I would be very proud of her. “
