Demi Lovato Explained How Her Past Drug Use Was A “Coping Mechanism” That “Saved Her Life”
“It saved my life at times, because there were times that I dealt with suicidal ideations.”
Demi Lovato is opening up about her history with drug misuse, explaining in a candid interview on Diane Guerrero’s Yeah No, I’m Not OK podcast that she believes her past drug misuse “saved her life.”
According to a preview from E! News, in an upcoming episode of the podcast, the 28-year-old will address common misconceptions about addiction — namely that “if people are using drugs, or if they are dealing with an eating disorder or self-harm, that they want to die.”
“I turned to those coping mechanisms because I genuinely was in so much pain that I didn’t want to die,” the musician said. “And I didn’t know what else to do.”
Lovato went on to say that her decision to be so open about her mental health journey comes from a lack of visibility of similar issues in the media when she was young.
The “Sorry Not Sorry” singer is set to explore her past drug use and overdose in a new YouTube documentary, Dancing With the Devil, which will premiere on March 23.
In the trailer for the four-part series, Lovato revealed her overdose resulted in “three strokes and a heart attack,” and said her doctors had told her she had “five to ten more minutes.”
