Former Teen Mom star Amber Portwood pulls no punches in her new tell-all book, revealing a life riddled with drugs, suicide attempts and even sex addiction.
Never Too Late is Amber's story of crashing and burning, hitting rock bottom and crawling back up again, documenting the highs and lows along the way.
Deeply depressed, Portwood says she first tried suicide at age 11.
“No one was home when I did it," she writes. "I just took a cord into the bathroom and hung it on the fan in the ceiling, and I looped it around my neck.”
She went through with it, too, but it didn't take. She survived, obviously, but Amber says all she remembers at that point is waking up on the floor.
“I don’t know how long I was out,” the 24-year-old star wrote.
“But the fan had only been held up in the ceiling with one screw in the middle, and the weight pulled the fan so it stripped the screw and fell to the floor."
"I didn’t try again ... I just kind of chalked it up to a failure.”
