Jada Pinkett Smith Reveals She Was Drinking Hard in High School Jada Pinkett Smith is getting candid about problems she’s had with drinking and alcoholism in the past. In a preview for Red Table Talk, she said she drank heavily as early as high school. She said, “I was a brown liquor drinker, vodka. I could drink almost anybody under the table.” She also said she often did ecstasy, alcohol, and weed. She said, ” I was doing ecstasy because I wanted to party. I was doing ecstasy, weed, and a bottle of Courvoisier because I wanted to get lit. I wasn’t making the connection, and I knew… I knew I was on the course of addiction. I was very clear about it.” Jada also reveals that she was suicidal at one point. If you were a celeb, would you share personal information like this with fans?
