My truth… #sober out now

A post shared by Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) on

“Mama, I’m so sorry I’m not sober anymore. And daddy please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor… And I’m sorry for the fans I lost who watched me fall again. I wanna be a role model, but I’m only human.” 

There is speculation that after the North American leg of her Tell Me You Love Me tour Lovato started drinking alcohol again.

“To the ones who never left me, we’ve been down the road before. I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry, I’m not sober anymore.”

Lovato has battled addiction, mental illness, and disordered eating for years.

In 2011, she entered treatment to provide care and assistance for bipolar disorder, bulimia, self-harm, and addiction. After leaving the treatment center, Lovato relapsed and entered a sober living facility for one year.

Throughout her struggles, Lovato has also been a role model for people who also suffer from similar addictions and disorders.

In September 2017, Lovato was awarded the “Spirit of Sobriety” award at the Brent Shapiro Foundation for Drug Prevention Summer Spectacular in Beverley Hills.

“Every day is a battle,” she said at the time. “You just have to take it one day at a time, some days are easier than others and some days you forget about drinking and using, but for me, I work on my physical health, which is important, but my mental health as well.”

Read the ‘Sober’ lyrics below: 

I got no excuses
For all of these goodbyes
Call me when it’s over
‘Cause I’m dying inside
Wake me up when the shakes are gone
And the cold sweats disappear
Call me when it’s over
And myself has reappeared

I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know why
I do it every, every, every time
It’s only when I’m lonely
Sometimes I just wanna cave
And I don’t wanna fight
I try and I try and I try and I try and I try
Just hold me, I’m lonely

Momma, 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

I’m sorry to y future love
For the man that left my bed
For making love the way I saved for you inside my head
And I’m sorry for the fans I lost
Who watched me fall again
I wanna be a role model
But I’m only human

I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know why
I do it every, every, every time
It’s only when I’m lonely
Sometimes I just wanna cave
And I don’t wanna fight
I try and I try and I try and I try and I try
Just hold me, I’m lonely

Momma, 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
I’m not sober anymore

I’m sorry that I’m here again
I promise I’ll get help
It wasn’t my intention
I’m sorry to myself
