When you almost die from drugs that should be a wakeup call, but after Eminem nearly died of an overdose in 2007 and he want back to drugs. And then he realized he needed to wake up from the addiction taking over his life. Who knew that he almost died of an overdose…I didn’t!
Eminem has opened up about the extent of his prescription drug addiction, admitting he almost died after a 2007 overdose.
â€œThe things I was putting in my body, my tolerance got so high,â€ Eminem tells Access Hollywoodâ€™s Billy Bush. â€œI got to the point where I couldnâ€™t even count how many pills I was taking.â€
Eminem has used his new album, Recovery, to explore his addiction. â€œI had overdosed in 2007, like right around Christmas in 2007â€¦ Pretty much almost died,â€ he says.
â€œYou know, I pulled through and went home and relapsed less than a month later and I literally shot back up to the amount of pills I was taking, shot right back up to where I overdosedâ€¦ Kind of I scared myself, like, â€˜Yo! I need to, I need help. Like I canâ€™t beat this on my ownâ€™.â€
How did the Detroit-born rapper finally get clean? â€œWell, I just got tired of the way I was living,â€ he says. â€œI guess I really had to reach down, reach deep down and look at myself and realize this is my fault, like, take responsibility for the way Iâ€™m living and stop blaming other people.â€
He adds: â€œThe biggest problem is admitting that you have a problem. Nobody wants to admit that theyâ€™re not in control of something.â€
Hopefully Eminem is clean and will never go back to drugs! It would be a waste of talent!
