"I kept a pint of Remy in my desk at work," Hammond, 56, recalls in "God, If You’re Not Up There, I’m F*cked," out Nov. 8 from HarperCollins, according to The New York Post. "The drinking calmed my nerves and quieted the disturbing images that sprang into my head ... when drinking didn’t work, I cut myself."
It gets even worse. In 1998, police officers escorted Hammond from NBC to New York Hospital in a straitjacket. “My wife came but I didn’t recognize her,” he writes, according to the Post.
In 2002, Hammond confesses, "I'd started adding an obscene amount of cocaine to my binges." And in 2009, after having gone to rehab once, Hammond relapsed. "I had the brilliant idea I should try crack," he says, revealing that he spent some time in a Harlem, N.Y., crack house.
