But the 37-year-old said she was able to quit after going to church and making a deal with God.
She said: 'I started getting really paranoid. So I went one day into this church and I thought that the FBI and the SWAT teams were outside the church...so I had a conversation with God...and I said, "Alright, if I go out there and the FBI and the SWAT team's not out there, then it's the drugs and I'm stopping."
'I went outside of the church...and there was no SWAT team, there was no FBI, just me and God. And I kept my promise. That day. That was it.'

Fergie, who is married to actor Josh Duhamel, said she started taking drugs a teenager progressing from ecstasy to crystal meth.
On Oprah's Next Chapter airing over the weekend she said: 'I got into a scene. I started going out and taking ecstasy.

'What got me through it was a lot of therapy, soul searching, discovering why I took the drugs in the first place, because that’s really what it is,' she said.

She denied being a lesbian but admitted to experimenting with women.
'I never dated women. It was more fun. I think that a lot of women experience this sort of thing in college. Tour was like college in a way. I mean I guess I would call it bisexual or sexually open, free spirit...what have you.' she said.
