Frankie Jonas Gets Candid About Having Suicidal Thoughts Before He Got Sober

Frankie Jonas is sharing his story with a fan and opening up about the suicidal thoughts he once experienced before he got sober.

In a TikTok reply video, the youngest Jonas Brother revealed that “from a very young age, I struggled with drinking and drugging as an escape because I hated life and I didn’t wanna be here.”

He went on, explaining that he spent “many years of trying to kill myself accidentally” and just “came to a point where I was gonna do it for real, and something intervened.”

Frankie shared that going to treatment “saved” his life, and told fans that he “couldn’t be more grateful for the fact that I’m alive today because my world has changed so beautifully and so astronomically, and I’m not that person anymore. I couldn’t be more grateful that I’m alive and happy today.”

Earlier in the month, in another TikTok video, Frankie celebrated a “a year and a half” of sobriety.

He recommended to another fan that the first step in the process is “acceptance, and if it’s really something you want, you know, right now AA and all those sorts of programs are all online, so you can kind of do whatever.”

“Just look up Intergroup or those sorts of resources to find Zoom meetings. It’s easy. You just have to accept that you need help and that there’s other people who can help you. So, hopefully that helps. All the love in the world.”

If you didn’t see, one of Frankie‘s sister-in-laws revealed he’s their fave Jonas Brother to follow on TikTok. See who it was!
