Moore opened up about this difficult time and her substance abuse to Harper's Bazaar for their October issue.
"In retrospect, what I realized is that when I opened the door [again], it was just giving my power away," she said when speaking about her battle with sobriety.
She added, "I guess I would think of it like this: It was really important to me to have natural childbirth because I didn't want to miss a moment. And with that I experienced pain. So part of being sober is, I don't want to miss a moment of life, of that texture, even if that means being in--some pain."
However, everything that she has experienced in life has led her to where she is today. As she puts it, "Learning that I'm okay with just me was a great gift I was able to give myself."
Kutcher went on to marry actor Mila Kunis in 2015 and the two are proud parents to Wyatt and Dimitri.
