During an appearance on The Howard Stern Show, the 31-year-old candidly shared: “When you’re in so much pain the consequences don’t matter, you just want to escape or numb out.

“I put numbing out before everything in my life. When I choose drugs I’m choosing them over family, over friends, over my career, over essentially everything.

“And that’s the way that I use,” Demi added on the SiriusXM show.

While many details of Demi’s 2018 relapse and subsequent overdose were kept hidden, the star unearthed major truths in her four-part YouTube documentary, Dancing With the Devil.

Demi revealed she became addicted to crack cocaine and heroin and was hospitalised after taking drugs laced with fentanyl.

The songwriter almost died in a hospital after suffering several strokes and a heart attack connected with the overdose.

Demi admitted: “I still actually have vision problems to this day. I don’t drive anymore because I have blind spots in my vision.”

She went on the share that even though they were sat opposite each other, she couldn’t see the host’s nose or mouth, adding: “It killed off some cells that didn’t repair.”

“I have a lot of sympathy for the state of mind I was in to be using those drugs and to take it to that extreme.

Demi stated: “I think to myself, ‘Wow, you were in a lot of pain and it’s okay now. You’ve worked through it.’”

In her 2017 documentary Simply Complicated, Demi explained she was a child star working for the Disney Channel when she first tried cocaine at 17 years old.

“I was with a couple friends, and they introduced me to it,” she said.

“I was scared because my mom always told me your heart could just burst if you do it, but I did it anyways. And I loved it.”

She added her birth father was an addict and an alcoholic, and Demi added she “always searched for what he found in drugs and alcohol” because he chose those substances over his family.
