Demi Lovato Reveals Her Shocking Cocaine and Alcohol Addiction

Disney actress and singer Demi Lovato has opened up on her shocking cocaine addiction, admitting that she even used to smuggle cocaine on to planes because she couldn’t go for very long without it. She admits that even while trying to get sober she used to do cocaine in the plane’s bathroom even while being watched by a sober companion. She said on her struggle with drug addiction:

“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 without 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. 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 also struggled with alcohol abuse but one day she had a revelation when she realized that her behavior wasn’t enjoyable and she wanted to change. She admits that she had plenty of help but before that time, she wasn’t interested because she thought she was having fun rebelling:

“I was going to the airport and I had a Sprite bottle just filled with vodka and it was just nine in the morning, I was throwing up in the car and this was just to get on a plane to go back to LA 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. I think at 19 years old, I had a moment where I was like, oh my God, that is alcoholic behavior, no longer, I’m young and rebellious and out having fun, it was, wow, I’m one of those people. I gotta get my [expletive] together,'”
