Demi Lovato admits she can’t have a drink for fun. The X Factor judge told OK! magazine, “Some people can smoke and drink recreationally. I’m not one of those people. If I do that, it will spiral out of control very quickly. I’ve lost the privilege of being able to drink responsibly.”
The 21-year-old added that it was difficult to stay sober after her father passed away earlier this year.
“I’ve definitely struggled a lot with drug and alcohol addictions – even more than with my eating disorder. But I decided to stay strong when my father died. I worked so hard on my sobriety – I wasn’t going to give it up.”
“When I feel like I want to give up I think to myself, ‘No, what about the 17-year-old girl that’s been free of self-harming for nine months?’ If I give up my sobriety, that would mean it would be OK for her to go back to self-harming,” Lovato added.
On Sunday (December 14) Demi shared a photo from the set of The X Factor.
She tweeted: “XF commercial break with @irobotyoujane”
For now she’s keeping busy with the show as well as meeting up with friends. She was spotted last Tuesday with Selena Gomez in Chicago dining at The Cheesecake Factory. The Come & Get It singer shared a cute black and white photo of the two of them and Demi tweeted back: “I looooooooooovvvvvveeee you”.
