Another former child star is opening up about her hardcore drug use and a life that spiraled out of control.

Jodie Sweetin, 27, once known as Stephanie Tanner in the beloved family comedy, ‘Full House,’ is recounting her days as a drug addict and her attempts to get sober for her new tell-all book, “unSweetined.”

The star says she dabbled in cocaine, methamphetamine and ecstasy, spending “tens of thousands of dollars on her habit.” She even once drove drunk with her baby daughter in the car.

“From the second I walked in, it was on. Some friend gave me a hug and put Ecstasy right in my mouth. That’s how the night started. Simple as that,” she recounts in the book. “Coke. No problem. We were doing it right at the table. Meth wasn’t as socially acceptable so I did that at home, alone, or with a couple friends who were also using. But the coke, the Ecstasy — the party — went until closing. It almost always did.”

Sweetin also tells of the times when she spoke out against the dangers of drugs and alcohol – while she was  high. “I did a few key bumps and headed to the lecture hall, where a sold-out crowd waited to hear me speak,” she writes. “I thought for sure that one of the professors would take one look at me and kick me out. But none did. They wanted to hear about the trials and tribulations of Jodie Sweetin, or at least the Jodie Sweetin I had created.”

The book hits stores November 3.
