Reality television star Stephanie Pratt got hooked on drugs at just 16, and struggled with addiction and eating disorders for over a decade, she says. 

Pratt began doing crystal meth at 16, and later progressed to cocaine and other drugs. Pratt says that she realized she was in the grips of a "full-blown addiction," but after a stint in rehab she still found herself using drugs in order to numb her pain.

"The inner core of sadness and anxiety that I wasn't perfect or even normal remained," she wrote in New! Magazine. "And for as long as it did, I suppose there was going to be a part ofme that still was going to numb those sensations."

Pratt got clean from drugs after a 2007 Rehab stay, but developed an eating disorder. 

Today Pratt, 29, is clean and healthy. She has been appearing on the British reality television show "Made in Chelsea" since 2013.
