JM De Guzman admits drug use

In an exclusive interview with Boy Abunda on "The Buzz," aired last Sunday, August 3, JM De Guzman admits taking prohibited drugs is the reason behind his one-year showbiz hiatus.
 
Knowing the impact of drugs on his life, JM asked his late grandfather to send him in a rehabilitation facility.
 
“Pinasok po ako sa rehab dahil unmanageable na ako. Gumamit po ako ng droga. Sinubukan ko 'yung hindi dapat subukan,” he admits. “Naging iresponsable po ako. Nawala po 'yung disiplina ko. Lumaki po yung ulo ko. I lost control.”
 
He adds, “Mentally, hindi na ako makapag-isip ng diretso. Hindi ko na mapagkatiwalaan 'yung mga sarili kong desisyon, responsibilidad at disiplina nawawala na rin sa akin. Wala na, emotionally hindi ko na kaya i-control.”
 
He also clarified that his ex-girlfriend Jessy Mendiola was not the reason behind his drug problem. Instead, according to JM, their breakup inspired him to turn his back from his vice.
 
Sa bisyo ko, sa mga ginawa ko sa sarili ko, wala pong kinalaman si Jessy doon,” he explains. “Decision ko 'yun, choices ko 'yun, and naging rason 'yun kung bakit kami naghiwalay. Isa po 'yun sa maraming rason.
 
Although JM is still under the 15-month rehabilitation program, he is already set to make a showbiz comeback. In fact, he will have a stint in the ABS-CBN Saturday crime documentary show “Ipaglaban Mo,” which airs this August 9.
 

JM then thanked the network and everyone who supported him, for giving him another chance to start anew.

He ends, “Nagpapasalamat ako ng sobra kasi hindi lahat ng tao nabibigyan ng ganitong pagkakataon at hindi lahat ng tao binibigyan pa ng pangalawang pagkakataon.”
