Spears writes that she never really took things too far despite experiencing the nightlife scene in the public eye. “It was never as wild as the press made it out to be,” she says, according to the NYT.

She goes on to say she never really had much interest in doing hard drugs and preferred a different type of scene.

Spears also reveals she “never had a drinking problem” in descriptions of her life behind the scenes and away from the cameras, the NYT reported.

The star candidly opens up about the reason she opted to reach for Adderall, admitting to liking the ADHD medication. It “made me high, yes, but what I found far more appealing was that it gave me a few hours of feeling less depressed,” Spears writes, according to the outlet.
