Lamar Odom took to the streets of social media on Wednesday in a state of reflection.
The former NBA baller opened up about the day he exited his “abusive” relationship with Sabrina Parr and how he spiraled into marijuana and women afterward.
Lamar proudly shared that today he is drug-free, relationship-free, and free of his addiction to pornography (he later edited that part out of the post).
A year ago yesterday I left my ex fiance’ at the W Hotel in Atlanta without notice. When she realized I was gone back to my home in San Diego she was livid. I received over 250 calls and text messages over the course of last December from her wanting to fix us. We were toxic. Independently and collectively.
Leaving broke my heart but saved my soul. The relationship was abusive.
Many times I wanted to go back because-the dysfunction in me was addicted to the abuse. The addict in me hated being alone, the man in me wanted a pretty face to wake up to, it was hard. Late nights and early mornings alone wears on a brother. I sought solace in marijuana and a slew of random women, not loving any of them, not really wanting to be with any of them, but it beat being lonely.
One day, my soul opened up, light bulb went off and I wanted and needed to change for ME! My team had worked hard to get me a fresh start. I had to honor that ????????
Today, I am free. Drug free. Pornography addiction free. Marijuana free. Relationship free. I am rebuilding a relationship with myself. With my family. I am focused on my faith. My growth. My brand. I am a legend. I own that. I am a recovering addict. I own that too.
Stand in your truth. Do not believe everything you read. Luckily my team keeps record of EVERYTHING so I am reminded of how far I have come. I have not arrived yet. I will not let troubled exes from my past haunt me. I will stand in my truth. I owe that to myself and whomever God places next in my life.
I truly love you all for loving me~ LO

Lamar Odom is really making strides in an effort to become a better man and to strengthen his walk with Christ.
In October, he received a “new lease on life” when he got baptized.
I wish Lammy the best on his journey.
