'If I Have One Drink The Docs Say I Will Die'

Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley has hit “rock bottom” and was recently hospitalized as a result of alcohol abuse, the singer posted for everyone to see as a warning in a May 16 upload on his website.

“The reason I got so sick is from all the hard boozing I’ve been doing over the years,” Whibley explained. “If I have one drink the doc’s say I will die.”

His fiancée rushed him to hospital, where he was later told that his kidneys and liver had collapsed, Rolling Stone reported.

'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,' he said.

Here's the entire posting that Whibley uploaded to his website as a warning about the effects of alcoholism.

"hey everyone, it’s deryck here. sorry i’ve been so m.i.a lately, but i’ve been very sick in the hospital for a month and was pretty sick for a few weeks leading up to my trip to the hospital. 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. 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. 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. see you all sometime! there will be more posts again so say up to date friends."
