Sum 41 Singer Deryck Whibley’s Scary Road To Addiction Recovery

Deryck Whibley made his first public appearance following a month-long hospital stay prompted by a near fatal alcoholic episode. The appearance came just three days after a blog post outlining the circumstances leading to the collapse.

The 34-year-old singer was photographed walking hand in hand with his fiancée, Jocelyn Aguilar – appearing frail, but sober.

“The reason I got so sick is from all the hard boozing I’ve been doing over the years,” Whibley wrote. “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 midnight 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.”

The singer was “stuck [with] needles and I.V.’s all over,” sedated for an entire week before waking up to see his parents standing over him, he said. Deryck has dedicated himself to addiction recovery and is inspired to get back into the studio and tour.

Tales of celebrity drug and alcohol abuse are commonplace. Fortunately, in Deryck’s case, it appears the worst is behind him.

Scared Straight

After being told his kidneys and liver had collapsed, Deryck Whibley stated to, “Needless to say it scared me straight. I finally realized I can’t drink anymore. If I have one drink the doc’s say I will die,”

Whibley mentioned on his site, “Anyway I have my passion and inspiration back for writing music. I already have a few song ideas for new songs. Soon it will be time to start making an album and getting back to touring again.”

Deryck’s admission promoted well wishes from friends and fans throughout the world, including ex-wife Avril Lavigne. “I am so proud of him,” she Tweeted. “He is family to me an always will be.”
