"I was struggling to pay my rent because I had a really bad drug addiction." I would spend thousands and thousands of dollars a week on drugs, "he said.

"I started with cocaine, but I was finally fighting heroin addiction."

Brittni had her first contact with the sex industry when she was only 16 years old, when she traveled to Mexico to spend an evening with friends.

"I felt rejected as a child and adolescent, in my homes there was a lot of chaos and animosity, so I started looking for love and acceptance in all the wrong places," he said.

"When my friend said they were going to a club, I went with them and ended up getting drunk.

– That was my first experience in a strip club. I had blond hair and orthotics and they put me onstage that night.

Brittni began to undress to pay her way through college and was recruited by two porn producers who said they made "romantic movies". and that I was destined to be a star.

"I was naive but I was not so naive, I knew they were talking about porn movies, they accepted me to be represented by a top level agency and I decided to become a full-time porn star and drop out of college," he said.

Two months later, Brittni caught gonorrhea and began to dislike the work she was doing.

"I ended up using drugs because there was a director who told me that I was fat and needed to lose weight, I weighed around 105 pounds, I was devastated.

"About a year before I had been discharged from the hospital because of anorexia, so it was a great trigger for me," he said.

Brittni asked a particularly thin model how she kept her weight, and was told about inhaling cocaine and making methamphetamines. Brittni tried cocaine and was instantly hooked.

"I had more energy," he said. I could represent the scenes and not think more about the repercussions. He was giving me this false sense of happiness.

"I thought I was happy while I was doing it, but the moment I went down, I was not happy anymore, so I would have to do something else."

While she was ranked as one of the most popular porn stars in the world, Brittni's lifestyle left her struggling with heroin addiction and suffering frequent suicidal thoughts, until one day she knew that if she did not call her grandmother to help her , I would take it to my own life.

Brittni's grandmother picked her up at her home in Los Angeles and moved her to her home in San Diego.
