Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley is recovering after a month-long hospital stay for alcoholism.
“I finally realized I can’t drink anymore. If I have one drink the docs say I will die,” the Canadian rocker wrote in a note posted on his website on Friday.
Whibley — who was married to Avril Lavigne for three years — apologized to fans for being “M.I.A.” in a post titled “Rock Bottom.” He detailed the horrific effects years of hard-drinking had on his health.
“It finally caught up to me,” Whibley wrote. “I was drinking hard every day. Until one night. I was sitting at home, poured myself another drink around midnight 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.” READ FULL STORY
