Sum 41's Deryck Whibley Reveals Alcoholism Almost Killed Him

Deryck Whibley has revealed that he almost died recently following a battle with alcoholism and that he is going sober moving forward.

“sorry i’ve been so m.i.a. lately, but i’ve been very sick in the hospital for a month and was pretty sick for a few weeks leading up to my trip to the hospital,” the 34-year-old Sum 41 frontman wrote on his blog. “the reason i got so sick is from all the hard boozing i’ve been doing over the years. it finally caught up to me.”

“i was drinking hard every day. until one night. i was sitting at home, poured myself another drink around mid night and was about to watch a movie when all of a sudden i didn’t feel so good. i then collapsed to the ground unconscious. my fiancé got me rushed to the hospital where they put me into the intensive care unit. i was stuck with needles and i.v.’s all over. i was completely sedated the FIRST WEEK. when i finally woke up the next day i had no idea where i was. my mum and step dad were standing over me. i was so freaked out. my liver and kidney’s collapsed on me. needless to say it scared me straight. i finally realized i can’t drink anymore,” Deryck added.
