Demi Lovato Sings About Struggles With Alcohol, Substance Abuse
"I got no excuses," she starts to sing. "Momma I'm so sorry I'm not sober anymore/ Daddy please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor."
The singer-songwriter has always been open to fans about her mental health issues, including her drug and alcohol addiction that landed her in rehab. She has previously opened up about her use of cocaine and how her alcoholism has landed her in trouble with friends and family.
She also released a documentary called Simply Complicated in which she revealed her ongoing battle with her demons.
The lyric video, interspersed with photos and videos of Lovato partying and then spending time with family and friends make the emotional song even more heartbreaking.
CNN reports that "Sober" was released a few weeks after the former Disney star celebrated six years of sobriety. On Twitter, the celebrity activist reported to fans that she continues to be clean from alcohol and drugs.
Just officially turned 6 years sober. So grateful for another year of joy, health and happiness. It IS possible. — Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) March 15, 2018
In September, she received the "Spirit of Sobriety" award from the Brent Shapiro Foundation for Drug Prevention Summer Spectacular.

However, fans are increasingly getting worried about the singer/actress. In "Sober," she seems to admit that she has relapsed and would need to get help again.
"I'm sorry that I'm here again/ I'll promise I'll get help," Lovato sings in the last line. "It wasn't my intention/ I'm sorry to myself."
While she could also be pertaining to her previous relapse, there have been rumors that the mental health advocate has fallen off the wagon once again. Two months ago, People pointed out that she was spotted holding a drink in the launch party of Expectations, a new album by Hayley Kiyoko.
At the time, Lovato responded to the rumors by saying that she was drinking Red Bull.
Lovato has not confirmed if she has, indeed, relapsed after six years of sobriety. However, Iggy Azalea tweeted her support to her friend for having the courage to admit her problem and recognizing that she needs help.
