Drew Barrymore's drug addiction came extremely early in her life. Her father John Drew Barrymore and grandfather John Barrymore were both very aware of her addictions. As fast as stardom came to this young girl, so did addiction and drug abuse.
Barrymore admits to have taken her first drink at the age of nine, her first marijuana cigarette at age ten and did cocaine at the very early age of twelve. By the time Drew was thirteen, she had already been through two bouts of drug rehabilitation. Acting and addiction seemed to be genetic. Her grandfather John Barrymore, a star of stage and acreen in the 1920s and 30s drank himself to death at the age of 60.
