There’s nothing like stepping on stage; into a sold-out crowd of almost sixteen thousand people. What inspires me to keep me doing this everyday is the joy that I get when I sing on stage. It’s absolutely irreplaceable. With two years of of sobriety people think I have it all together, but in fact I’m just beginning. It’s easy for people to assume that everything is taken care of, and that I’m always camera-ready but in fact I wake up everyday like everyone else. I have the same worries, and fears that everyone does.
Where I am today… I still have my ups and downs, but I take it one day at a time. And I just hope that I can be the best that I can possibly be, not only for myself - but also young people that are out there today that need someone to look up to.
Now I’m being healthy. But that’s the thing - an addiction is an addiction and you’re gonna deal with it for the rest of your life. And you’re gonna have days when you’re gonna struggle. I cannot tell you that I have not thrown up since treatment. I cannot tell you that I haven’t cut myself since treatment. I’m not perfect. This is a daily battle.
