Demi Lovato opened up about what led to her 2018 slip in sobriety followed by her serious overdose  on model Ashley Graham’s Pretty Big Deal podcast on Tuesday.  She says she went from having an eating disorder to replacing it with intense workouts and dieting.


“I’m tired of running myself into the ground with workouts and extreme dieting,”  “I thought the past few years was recovery from an eating disorder when it actually was just completely falling into it.”

She also describes what she thought was her “recovery” as “definitely an eating issue.”

“I think when you have certain people around you that are telling you certain things that you should look a certain way, it makes it harder,” she says. “I was in that situation, and I was just running myself into the ground. I honestly think that’s kind of what led to everything happening over the past year was just me thinking I found recovery when I didn’t, and then living this kind of lie and trying to tell the world I was happy with myself when I really wasn’t.”
