Demi Lovato Reveals Shocking Details About Her Past Drug Use
Demi Lovato has revealed some pretty shocking details about her past drug use. Demi told Access Hollywood:
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. 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.
Demi also revealed that even after entering rehab she still did drugs:
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.
Demi continued about how she snuck alcohol onto airplanes:
I was going to the airport and I had a Sprite bottle just filled with vodka and it was just 9 in the morning and I was throwing up in the car and this was just to get on a plane to go back to L.A. to the sober living house that I was staying at…I had all the help in the world, but I didn’t want it. 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.
Demi spilled when she decided to get help:
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**t together. It was always there, but then I just acted on it at around 8 or 9 years old. I started overeating, compulsively overeating. I would bake cookies and then eat the whole pan. I went from doing that to being unhappy with my body. I went to just completely starving myself and that turned into throwing up and starving myself and it was just this crazy battle going on inside of me. It got really difficult [and] I would throw up and it would just be blood and it was something that I realized if I don’t stop this, I am going to die.
We’re so glad that Demi was able to get the help she needed!
