In a heartfelt and emotional post on his personal website, Sum 41 lead singer, Deryck Whibley explained to fans how he hit rock bottom in his drinking habits. The singer admitted to drinking heavily everyday when suddenly he, “collapsed onto the ground unconscious.”
After a being rushed to the hospital by his fiancé, Whibley was put into an induced coma for one week. He was later informed by doctors that his liver and kidneys had collapsed. “If I have one more drink the doc’s say I will die.” Whibley said.
The singer’s ailments are examples of the destructive effects that alcohol can take on one’s body.
His health condition is what has helped the singer to recognize that he can no longer consume alcohol.
