Slowly but now steadily enough Demi Lovato spills about why she turned towards drugs in past.
Lately, she is opening up more frequently with her fans and followers about the good, bad, and all the other things that she felt and went through as an individual which could be the main reason about how gradually Demi Lovato spills about why she turned towards drugs in past.
Recently, whilst her appearance as a celebrity guest on the globally renowned Diane Guerrero’s podcast titled, “Yeah No, I’m Not OK”, the Sorry Not Sorry singer finally spoke up in depth and also opened up about her mental health and past traumatizing experience with substance abuse also clearly speaking about misconceptions related to both of them.
She also revealed about her backstory of why she had to turn to drugs in first place which she said had nothing to do with wanting to end her life.
Finally now, three years after suffering a fatal and deadly drugs overdose, Demi has come on board to clear many misconceptions about her past drugs usage and also her experiences with both mental health and addiction.
Whilst recently joining the Orange Is The New Black (OITNB) hit series fame Diane Guerrero on an episode of her podcast ‘Yeah No, I’m Not OK’, this Grammy nominee singer got candid about her past experiences with drugs.
According to Demi, many people generally do have the misconception and wrong notion that “if people are using drugs or if they are dealing with an eating disorder or self-harm that they want to die”.
Clearing the air and confusion about how it isn’t always the case since drugs actually saved her, Demi responded, “In the same way it almost killed me, it saved my life at times, because there were times that I dealt with suicidal ideations. And had I gone forward with that in that moment, instead of another destructive coping mechanism, I wouldn’t be here to tell my story”.
Whilst touching up on the topic of her past history with substance abuse, Demi finally revealed about why she turned to drugs in first place and said, “I turned to those coping mechanisms because I genuinely was in so much pain that I didn’t want to die and I didn’t know what else to do”.
After getting treated thoroughly for substance dependency, Demi also went to open up about how she now knows to cope with these deadly thoughts and compulsions and explaining this part, she told, “I know how else to deal and how else to cope so I don’t have to resort to those behaviors again”.
Sharing about why she wanted to finally be honest and open up about her story of struggles so that people know that they aren’t alone in this, Demi said, “I would look at people in the media and I would just compare myself, not feel good enough, not feel thin enough and wonder how it was that these people were living lives that seemed so perfect but yet I was in so much pain. And when I got into the spotlight, I was like, ‘Oh, it’s not perfect here, nobody has a perfect life, it just looks that way”.
Lastly, Demi concluded the interview by adding, “I’ve tried on many identities over the years. The sexy feminine pop star that I felt like people wanted me to be or the poster child for recovery. And now I’m embracing the fact that my lack of commitment to any one identity isn’t a lack of commitment. It’s just an openness to continue to evolve”.
