Popular singer Amor Vittone says she's put all her hard times behind her and is ready to make a fresh start at life, and it starts with overcoming her addictions.

Amor has had a traumatic time over the last couple of years, events that culminated in her having a mental breakdown in March.

It was so intense that Amor turned to sleeping pills to help her get some rest but, as she tells YOU magazine this week, it soon became an addiction.

"Sleeping was a way to escape. I slept about two hours a night- my head was just buzzing," she said. "I took a pill to sleep then another because I wanted to be ready for the next day with my kids. But the more I slept, the more I wanted to sleep".

She admits to YOU that she may have taken a bit too many, sometimes as much as 5 a day. It became so addictive that she one day overdosed and had to be rushed to hospital.

She has been receiving help ever since and is now on the road to recovery.

Go, Amor!
