Jodie has had to go through difficult moments in her life related to the addictions she experienced in the past. After playing "Stephanie Tanner" in Full House, Jodie fell into addictions, which made her live several stormy years. She herself has revealed that the end of Full House became difficult to cope with. Thus, it was at the age of 14 when Jodie started drinking alcohol.
