Deryck Whibley Will Die if He Has Another Drink

Deryck revealed that due to several years of non-stop hard drinking, he landed in hospital because his liver and kidneys collapsed. Yep, they literally just wouldn’t do their jobs anymore, collapsed. Sounds serious, doesn’t it? Writing about what happened, Deryck sounds ‘mid-wakeup call’ as he writes about ending up in hospital and how doctors have explained that another drink will kill him:

“the reason i got so sick is from all the hard boozing i’ve been doing over the years. it finally caught up to me. i was drinking hard every day. until one night. i was sitting at home, poured myself another drink around mid night 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. i was stuck with needles and i.v.’s all over. i was completely sedated the FIRST WEEK. when i finally woke up the next day i had no idea where i was. my mum and step dad were standing over me. i was so freaked out. my liver and kidney’s collapsed on me. needless to say it scared me straight.”

He finished his cautionary tale by adding that he now hopes to completely quit alcohol cold turkey and believes people simply need to drink responsibly. He also adds that the scary experience has given him new inspiration for music and he wants to get back to it:

“i finally realized i can’t drink anymore. if i have one drink the doc’s say i will die. i’m not preaching or anything but just always drink responsibly. i didn’t, and look where that got me. (i never thought i would ever say that! haha) anyway i have my passion and inspiration back for writing music.”
