Demi Lovato released a new single, “Sober,” where she reveals her relapse after six years of sobriety.
In March, the 25-year-old celebrated her sixth year of sobriety after struggling with self-harm, bulimia, bipolar disorder and substance abuse over the years. However, she has continued to struggle with addiction.
“Mama, I’m so sorry I’m not sober anymore. And daddy please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor. To the ones who never left me, we’ve been down this road before. I’m so sorry, I’m not sober anymore.”
At Demi’s highly-anticipated “Tell Me You Love Me” tour, she expressed the moment she realized things weren’t right.
“Six years ago, I was drinking vodka out of a Sprite bottle at 9 in the morning, throwing up in the car, and I just remember thinking, ‘This is no longer cute. This is no longer fun. And I’m just like my dad.’”
The former Disney star has been open and honest throughout the years to be the role model she never had growing up. “I want to be a role model, but I’m only human,” she sings.
“I’m sorry that I’m here again. I promise I’ll get help. It wasn’t my intention. I’m sorry to myself,” Lovato states.
Demi believes her loneliness is what has caused her to relapse—leaving her to turn back to substance abuse.
Lovato’s journey is not over, but we certainly believe she will get through these tough times.
