Demi Lovato has spoken openly about her battles with drugs and alcohol in the past. But the X Factor judge has revealed for the first time how desperate her addictions had become.
The 21-year-old told in detail of how she couldn’t be without cocaine to the degree she’d smuggle it on airline flights:
“Something I’ve never talked about before, but with my drug use I could hide it to where I would sneak drugs. I couldn’t go 30 minutes to an hour without cocaine and I would bring it on airplanes,” she revealed. “I would smuggle it basically and just wait until everyone in first class would go to sleep and I would do it right there. I’d sneak to the bathroom and I’d do it. That’s how difficult it got and that was even with somebody [with me], I had a sober companion, somebody who was watching me 24/7 and living with me [and] I was able to hide it from them as well” she told AH.
As for her moment of “rock bottom” with realizing she was becoming an alcoholic, it happened when she was 19-years-old:
“I was going to the airport and I had a Sprite bottle just filled with vodka and it was just nine in the morning and I was throwing up in the car and this was just to get on a plane to go back to LA to the sober living house that I was staying at…I had all the help in the world, but I didn’t want it.”ional issues?”
“When I hit that moment I was like, it’s no longer fun when you’re doing it alone. I’ve really never talked about this stuff before… I don’t know if I should be sharing this. I think at 19-years-old, I had a moment where I was like, ‘Oh my God… that is alcoholic behavior. [It’s] no longer, I’m young and rebellious and out having fun, it was, wow, I’m one of those people…I gotta get my s*** together.”
sooooo……she didn’t really go to rehab for ” emotional issues?”
