Demi Lovato Completes Rehab Time After Deciding To Be Sober
Demi Lovato has completed a second term in recovery following a change in her sobriety. She reportedly joined the institution and “returned home from rehab during the holidays,” according to Us Weekly. According to a source close to the situation, “Demi will be accompanied by a sober living companion during this transition. It was their choice to return to rehab.”
In the month of December, “I no longer support my ‘California sober’ ways,” the “Dancing With The Devil” singer said on Instagram. The only way to be sober is to be sober.” The word “California sober” usually refers to people who have stopped using heavy narcotics but still use marijuana and alcohol.
Following their overdose in 2018, Lovato stated why they continued to drink and smoke cannabis in March of 2021. Demi Lovato: Dancing With the Devil, a YouTube docuseries, said that they “truly fought” with whether or not to come public with the truth about their recovery. “I’ve learned that saying I’m never going to do this again doesn’t work for me,” they told ET.
They went on to remark, “I know I’m done with the thing that’s going to kill me, right?” “Because I am such a black and white thinker, I feel that telling myself that I can never drink or consume marijuana is setting myself up for failure. For years, I had it pounded into my brain that one drink was akin to a crack pipe.” “We’ve been using pot and drinking in moderation,” the singer said.
I also don’t want people to hear it and think they can go out and drink or smoke a joint because of that, you know? “Because it isn’t for everyone,” says the author. Lovato went on to say that they didn’t think their route was for everyone. “There isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach to recovery.” If you’re not ready, you shouldn’t be forced to get sober. Please do not become sober for the sake of others. It’s something you have to do for yourself.”
Those close to Lovato, though, raised reservations about the strategy at the time. It’s worth noting that these interviews took place before Lovato declared herself nonbinary and began using they/them pronouns. “Now that I know she isn’t sober, it sort of scares me,” said Lovato’s aide Jordan Jackson, who was the one who discovered them motionless after their overdose.
Music legend Elton John added his two cents, speaking as someone who has long struggled with substance misuse. “Moderation is ineffective. Sorry. If you drink, you’ll drink even more. You’re going to take another pill if you take one. It’s either do it or don’t do it.”
Scooter Braun, Lovato’s manager, also weighed in on their decision to drink and consume marijuana, saying he wasn’t a fan. He explains, “Demi understands the entire moderation approach isn’t something I really agree with.” “When it comes to addiction, I’ve learned that if I push [them] to do what I want, I’ll push [them] away. I have no influence over [them]. I can just be a friend and hope she is correct.” Lovato appears to have come around to this viewpoint as well.
