Demi Lovato says she “had to die to wake up”
Singer,Demi Lovato who was hospitalised in July 2018 following overdose on drugs at her home in the Hollywood Hills revealed to ‘CBS Sunday Morning’ that she had to die to wake up.
” I didn’t know if I’d ever step foot on a stage again. When I woke up in the hospital, I was like, I don’t know the full extent of the damage that’s been done. I hadn’t tried singing yet.”
“If no one had found me, then I wouldn’t be here. I’m grateful that I’m sitting here today, yeah.”
“For the first time in my life, [I] had to essentially die to wake up.”
She also said she drinks alcohol and smokes marijuana in moderation,tagging it “California Sober”;
“I think that the term that I best identify with is ‘California Sober.’
“I really don’t feel comfortable explaining the perimeters of my recovery with people because I don’t want anyone to look at my perimeters of safety and think that’s what works for them because it might not.
“I am cautious to say that, just like I feel the complete abstinent method isn’t like a one-size-fits-all solution for everybody. I don’t think that this journey of moderation is a one-size-fits-all solution for everybody, too.”
