Rock Bottom

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.

    thank you for sharing…its not easy to do. I lived three years losing the man I loved due to alcohol…and lived thru a nightmare. (he had other issues as well which became more personified with the alcohol) unfortunately he never realised what it was he lost. You did & you’ve made the choice! :) always feel proud of that! the blood in my eyes acoustic is amazing & that piece of music plus the album helped me heal…thank you! take care & remember what life has to offer! It’s an amazing ride! :)

  22. I’ve been following you for about 13 years now (we even met twice when you were in Italy) and as much as I hate to say this, unfortunately I kinda knew that something like this was coming sooner or later. You can’t even imagine how glad I am to hear that you’re somehow fine now and that you understood what alcohol can do to your body. I love you man, I can’t wait to hear new music from you and to see you in concert again! I still need your talent and your music in my life! Take care Deryck!

Call it a lease on life…as perhaps this is your calling to be a light to some who only live in the dark. You are def a talented musician…make your music show that you are thankful for your life…and the passion in your heart save others from suffering like you have! God bless, bro.

    Hey it’s jay roche from your hometown ajax remember when you were just a kid then over night blowing up into sum 41. We were all once invincible bro but things change and our age catches up with us and something sooner or later kicks us and tells us we can’t keep doing what we were doing anymore. We have all had our issues in life so don’t be hard on yourself just realize it is time to change for the better. Be strong get rest and get better.

    Whenever i hear a sum 41 song on the radio it brings me back to south ajax days.

  44. Tiffany Reply

    Deryck, you’ve got a lot of balls (in a good way) to open up about these struggles. I hope people listen.

    You’ve got a powerful voice, one that kept me from losing my shit as a 14 year old punkass who was being subjected to cult-like religious indoctrination (Regnum Christi). “Does This Look Infected To You” was the only CD I was able to sneak into the convent that my parents shipped me off to for a week of hell. It reminded me of my self-worth and individuality every night after being forced to hear lectures, study the bible, and coercive attempts to get me “consecrated to Christ”.

    I guess what I’m trying to say is, you’ve got this. Alcohol can have a vice-grip on even the strongest people; it can be easier to pick up a drink than it is to allow yourself to examine thoughts and feelings that are uncomfortable or painful. Stay strong, don’t be ashamed of who you are (not the persona, the PERSON), and don’t beat yourself up over mistakes and bad decisions. You’re here, and alive. Give thanks.

    Not a fan of the band’s music, but when I saw this, I had to comment. I have seen what alcohol can do to a friend of mine, and he’s been sober for nearly two years now. Glad to see you’re still alive, and going to make the right choice. I went through my hard drinkings period, but those days are far behind me. Take care dude, and here’s to a speedy recovery and to better health. One last thing, enjoy your life too.

  62. C-Monkey Cee Reply

    Deryck – I am thinking about you during this time of reflection you have going on right now. You or anyone with any sort of celebrity status breathes a sober breath on anyone that over does it daily or on a recreational basis. The later, bears on all organs and which it has apparently done to you and you have done to yourself. I wish you the best and really hope you publicly speak about this some day. You are a good Canadian man and I might want to learn a thing or 2 from you one day. Cheers in the most positive way ever!

  63. Cristy Reply

    Hey Deryck, stay strong bud! You have a long life and many accomplishments ahead of you once you get through this, which I know you will. Please please listen to the one more drink will kill you from the doctors. My husbands dad didnt listen after he was hospitalized. He went home and had one more drink and died at 42 years old. I never met him, and my kids will never either,

    I’ve been a fan since the beginning and look forward to what you will be writing next! Focus on yourself and heal up :) Organs are amazing things and will heal themselves even after you’ve put them through hell and back, as long as you treat them right from now on.

    Get better!!! :) :)

    Derek,

    I have been exactly where you are. Hospital, family, sepsis, Dark!

    That was 3 years ago. Go slow, kid gloves one moment one day at a time,

    Yesterday is toast and tomorrow hasn’t happened. I never thought that I could recover. But I did for today.

    Most of us don’t wake up. We did, our bodies mend and with time, effort and a steadfast belief that there is a reason for all of this; My friend, you are going to be OK!

    Just trust it!

    Hi Deryck, I saw your post on DailyMailonline and clicked over to your website. One of my closest friends died last year from acute alcoholism, his liver and kidneys went into failure and he drank again. PLEASE DON’T DO THIS. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t think about my friend Jason and feel mad and sad that he’s gone. Get well soon!

    hey Buddy, glad to hear you are getting some help. Hope you stay off the bottle, but if you do go back, I have found the way to stay healthy is to alternate, one day booze, next day crack, next day pizza, next day hookers, next day raging at the media, etc. This gives your liver and organs a chance to recover. Ford More Years.

  73. Kevin Reply

    My son and I have seen Sum41 a couple of times and enjoy your tunes Deryck! Being 7+ years sober myself I can tell you that this is doable with the right supports. I was shocked to see your story online man! Get healthy brother, God bless! KK

  74. Rob Ford Reply

    also, don’t forget you can use different inputs, not just through liquids. You can snort some lines one day, then smoke it the next day, then use a vein the next day, you can even use the membranes on the anus the next day to ingest. This way, you are only drinking one day a week, and hey it works for me.
    Are they giving pain killers? Because mine ain’t working anymore. I will send some guys over to make an exchange.
    also, swapping wives is a big high too. See there are lots of other ways to get high and party.

    • kim Reply

      awesome advice

      • Kim, just because you have spent your life desperately trying to sell your anus to anyone who will throw pennies at you and didn’t even earn a dime doesn’t mean that everyone else is as big a loser in life as you ; )

        What are you some kind of pinko liberal?? You think the government is supposed to pay for it? I am in rehab myself right now in Muskoka, it costs 100 grand, worth every penny. But they test your urine, so I found a guy by the Tim Hortons who will sell his urine to me, only $10 a bottle. Worth every penny.

    But, what caught my atention is that you said “my fiancé”… what kind of person let her significant other drink that much, sounds like she doesn’t care. (just my humble opinion)
    Stay strong and away from the alcohol, and be better to make music.

    You can beat this buddy. I drank everyday for many years, my kidneys quit and I was dying. 5yrs. 9mths. sober. Being sober with an underlying illness is actually a blessing. 1 DAY AT A TIME. 1 minute if needed. Strength is in numbers I support your sobriety and as a fellow artist your music as well. Hold on to all the beautiful moments of your present. it is a gift. Congratulations on the days you have already been sober. To your fiance: As well as myself my husband is recovering as well. BE STRONG! Sobriety is a difficult journey for the alcoholic but for the direct supporter as well. I support you too. Hug each other often it will help. Laugh together, cry together, most of all love each other through all of the good and all of the pain. You will both get through this. My heart goes out to you and yours.

    Alcoholism is a disease, you can beat it if you are willing to go to any length. Welcome to the club! I myself have over 26 years of sobriety and did not do it on my own. You can do it!

  84. Al Reply

    As a fellowing recovering alcoholic, I can tell you, it’s a hard road, but it’s so amazing when you wake up one day and realise “I’m not hungover and I’m not craving a drink.” I wish you all the best and hope that day comes soon for you. Take every opportunity you can to try different things in your recovery, rehab, counselling, SMART recovery, 12 step programs, and go with whatever combination helps you stay sober the most. For the moment, forget everything else in your life except staying sober, because as they say, anything you put before your recovery you will lose anyway if you relapse.

    The liver is an amazing organ. If you can stay sober, it will start to get better. Good luck to you man.

    Dude, I was pretty shocked reading this. (not completely shocked, just because I can be pretty indifferent to things in general) Having read bad news before about your health, and seeing you (and the band) glamorize drinking a lot, I have been worried for quite some time. As someone who checks in on what Sum 41 is up to every now and then, you seemed a little messed up the last couple of years. I always thought: go a little easy on the Jack Daniel’s man!
    It’s awful it had to get to this, but it’s good that you’re looking at a bright future now. Stay strong and always focus on how much better you feel without the alcohol, not on how much you miss the stuff. And find a way to get off the mindset that people need alcohol to have a good time at gigs or parties or something, get some different ideas in your head, get some straight edge music in your playlist or something :p It will be hard, with the consumption of alcohol being promoted so much in this society, but you can do it! All the best, and greetings from the Netherlands

    Hey man, Ryan here, 29 years old, from UK, currently travelling around Canada (hanging out in tofino right now) was devastated to hear the news. Get well soon brother, focus on getting better and walking back onto that stage. Your fans truly, care, take it easy, we’ll still be here.

    Hi DERYCK – You were saved for a reason. I’m 3 years and 2 months sober because I went through the same nightmare. A heavy drinker that left me in a coma for a month. I think it’s important and I’m proud of you for sharing your story so that others will take this addiction seriously. I wish you nothing but good things and a successful recovery.

    I came across your story on Huff Post. Look, I’m going to be honest. I don’t even know your music, sorry dude, nothing against you, but you are a human being in need. and I felt compelled to reach out to you. I lost my mother 2 months ago from drinking. She was 77, I was lucky I got the time I did with her. In the end, she needed a kidney and liver transplant, but it was too late, a few days later she was dead. Gave her life up for a bottle of Tequila. True story. I can only tell you what it feels like from the other side of the table. It’s the most horrible thing, ever, watching someone you love slowly kill themselves with booze. Now’s your time to make a real choice. This isn’t going to be easy. You’re going to want what you know you can’t have. You’re going to have to battle demons inside, you’ve been feeding with booze for a long time. Here’s the thing, you have people who actually give a fuck about you. Who love you, more than you love yourself. Use that, to get you through. Start to learn how to love yourself. It’s a fight worth sticking around for. I’m sure of it. Living is more important than ANYTHING else right now. Got it? Good. Peace and wellness to you.

    I hope and pray that you get better and can stay away from the alcohol. I also hope that your liver is not too damaged to be able to repair itself. My husband passed away September 2013 at age 49 due to complications of cirrhosis of the liver. He had Hep B and had been a pretty heavy drinker since he was a teenager. He was diagnosed with this about 3 years ago. He was committed to not drinking and had not had one sip since his diagnosis. Watching his diet and eating only foods that were easy for his liver to process was another story. He actually passed away after a routine endoscopy of his esophagus to check for varicies (something he had done on a regular basis). They found 5 and tied them off. Unfortunately, hours later 1 or more of them burst. He started throwing up blood causing more damage. He coded in the ambulance on the way to the hospital from blood loss. They were never able to get the bleeding to stop and revive him. He left behind me, a 24 year old daughter, 11 year old son, and 2 year old granddaughter. Please be careful and true to yourself to not drink. I was shocked and amazed that he was able to quit drinking instantly. It had always been such a part of his life and the culture that we live in. Take it easy and get yourself well!

    I too ended up in ICU for a week. Vodka. I was a weak mess and when I was moved out of ICU I had to force myself or train myself to eat again. When I was released and got home I realized I drank away 2 1/2 months. I couldn’t believe months had passed and I didn’t know it until I was out of the fog. Good luck. It’s the first day of the rest of your life. We made it.

  137. Lynn Schultz Reply

    Deryck,
    I met you last fall at Sum 41’s Minneapolis show. I was so thrilled to meet all of you in person and to thank you for all of the wonderful music you all make together-And to thank you for your wonderful heartfelt lyrics that mean so much and have meant so much to me, especially during my recovery. I am the crazy cancer survivor that cried when I meet you. I am so sorry you had to have a hospital stay, hospitals are no fun, been there done that. Alcohol can be an escape from reality and ease the hurt when you can not figure out how to do it sober but it is not the answer. Many crazy talented people are self destructive it’s how we cope… I am glad that you will recover, the world would have lost a very talented artist if you had died. The more talented, emotional and vulnerable the person, the more critical they are of themselves. I may not know you in person, but I know you by your lyrics and your music and what it means for me. Sum 41’s music has helped me though so much….I know you write down your ideas for songs, I would like to send you a gift, but I don’t know how to get it to you. I make hand made journals and I would like to make one for you, so that every time you write in it you can remember just how many people’s lives you touch and the impact that you have in people’s lives And how much you are loved and would be missed if you were gone. If you want you can send me a mailing address and I will try to get to you as soon as I can. If not that’s ok to hopefully you’ll be back around this way again and I can give it to you in person. Heal well in mind, body and spirit.
    Your friend in Minneapolis, Minnesota-Lynn

    It is great to see that this calamitous event is helping to motivate you to really rebuild Sum 41. Time for you to get back in shape and in health, get in touch with some new band members, be reborn anew, and time for us to stop procrastinating on buying whichever Sum 41 albums we don’t have yet!

    One day at a time, you will have good and bad days as you try to beat a terrible disease. Alcohol can be your best friend as you try to push troubles out of your mind. It does the opposite by robbing you of sleep and compounding problems only to repeat the cycle the next day. I’m two weeks away from my first year. Take it slow and don’t worry about anything but getting healthy for now. We will all be here when you are ready. Take some time for yourself and for the first little while sit back and listen. You will find your own path but be patient. I lived in Ajax and was fortunate to see you grow into an international star. I wish you all the best and if you ever need to get grounded please reach out.

It would be even more courageous to tell kids the truth about alcoholism: that amazing guys like you – and them, from a really young age – can also suffer from. There’s no drinking responsibly for an alcoholic but there is life – and one hell of a cool one – in sobriety with the fellowship. May you find it eventually, and anyone that needs it, at whatever age :0)

  176. Hey Deryck, glad to hear you are turning such a scary experience into a positive. These are the moments in life that can alter a person’s life forever, and it sounds like you are taking this opportunity to grow and become a better person because of it! As a longtime fan I’m proud of you!!

    I remember going to my first Warped Tour in 2001 (MA), and hearing “Makes No Difference” as a large group of us approached the venue. I spun around enthusiastically to my friends, recognizing one of my favorite songs at the time but no one reacted. So I made a split second decision. I ran and ditched them! Ha!

    I didn’t realize the impact that moment had on my life to come, but it started a trend of confidence in me that I could be independant and everything would turn out alright. That was the first show I spent alone, and loved it! The music took precident over my friends; I would see them after the show.

    I ended up going to school for music, and working at an alternative radio station for 3 awesome years. I have seen hundreds of bands live, and almost always by myself. I love it that way. The music comes first. It’s the best feeling in the world.

    So thanks for writing some great music! Thanks for inspiring me to chase down my own dreams, regardless of what the people around me thought or did. I’m a martial arts teacher to children now, and I would have NEVER had the courage or drive to take such a non-traditional career path had I not learned the independance, passion and comradere that comes out of punk rock music.

    Stay strong buddy! You don’t need to drink. I had a drug problem from 14-18 and had my own moment of clarity one day. I found a higher sense of purpose and haven’t touched a single thing since (I’m 30 now.) It can be done, and YOU can do it. Not anyone else. They can help, but it will be YOU who succeeds. And you’ve got what it takes. The guy who wrote Underclass Hero (one of the most underrated albums of the past decade, hands down) can beat any addiction.

    Good luck! One moment at a time. Keep the momementum forward. And mistakes are ok. Let reality be reality.

    Cheers,

    John

I used the excuse that drinking allowed me to deal with the assholes in my life. I ended up in the hospital just like you. The doctors told me the same. The look on the doctor and nurses was disgust towards me.I overheard one nurse call me a “bum”. .my wife and children and art are my savoirs now. Focus on your work. Kiss your soon to be wife.

    So happy you’re alive. I may not have followed you much after Sum41 but when a person overcomes a hard life obstacle like alcoholism they deserve all the support they can get. You’re famous so you have a ton of people in your corner already, but you’re also a genuinely good and positive person so whenever you’re struggling just remember your words and inspiration have helped so many of us growing up through your lyrics. Don’t be afraid to reach out to one of us if you ever need anything back. Life is about helping others and being the best we can be together. Don’t ever forget your strength!

    As someone who recently came into sobriety… this is harrowing to see. When I came into treatment, I had been drinking every day for a year heavily. (And years and years before that excessively as well) The physical pain I went through in order to become sober, coupled with the emotional trauma of the mistakes I had made was rough. You can do this, and now you have all the reason. Good luck. Stay openminded and teachable and you’ll come out of this experience mentally, physically and spiritually stronger than you have ever been. Sobriety is worth it! Stay cool – stay connected with your sober buddies and stay away from the BS. People care about you man! XX

Your time here on this planet is your school to grow, to learn and to love! Thats it bro, its free and the host of spiritual guides around you are telling me to tell you, you are a special guy and the heights that await you in soberity can’t be measured by mere mortals!!! Stay strong, stay clean, be free give your best. Oh, there is one other thing. Clean up your side of the street, get rid of those enablers and find a”sponsor” who can be your sounding board and another person who will hold you accountable!

    I remember seeing you play in Indianapolis on halloween last year, stay strong and keep rocking like you did. Take care, man.

  205. I truly hope you get better and know that never having another drink is not the end of the world. My Parents and Brother all died of Cancer slowly one after the other in exactly 2 years. I took care of them all. My father was the last to die and when I was tending to his care my oldest sister stole everything that was not nailed down and over a million dollars in total assets. Then she tried to take out a restraining order on me when I caught her (who by the way is a Reistered Nurse) I never hurt her in anyway, so the court knew & she did not get the Order at all, she was trying to get me away from the house my father owned when she was there because I caught her stealing pain pills and other meds that were either left over or there. Moral of this story is she forced my Father who was trying to call me and talk to me never to take my calls and that she would shoot me or anyone of my other sisters for trying to visit my Dad. I tried to sue her as it was my right but the system was currupt and my brother was playing both sides so that he could get the most as well. Never did I think my own siblings would choose money over a real good relationship with me up until that point. Please be sure of who you can trust in life. I am out the 250,000.00 I was supposed to get as I was my Dads favorite child according to my siblings testomony in court. So now I am disabled now from a car crash someone else hit me from behind and I was hurt,. So always be sure that who is around you are people that will not enable you and not allow you to drink yourself to death or even have a drink. I used to drink here and there cuz I am Irish but when my parents died, I made a choice not to drink, because I was already depressed alcohol is a depressant and you really DO NOT NEED that anymore. You have your whole life ahead of you and wonderful talent! The world is yours and all you have to do is live it. Very truly yours Christine Whelan (age 44yrs) I am on facebook. Much love to you and I hope you make it a good life! :)

    Deryck: As someone who remembers when All Killer No Filler first came out, and has been a fan since, I wish you nothing but the best and a speedy recovery.

    As someone who has had their own personal struggles with addiction, and is trying to put the last one behind him, I give you all the support I can muster. It is never easy, but it is always worth the struggle. Stay strong.

    Sometime in the 80s my dad hit rock bottom. He ended up in the hospital the same way you did, by collapsing on some dirty bathroom floor. He was so sick by the time they got to him, they had a priest come in to deliver him his Last Rites.

    I just want to say that my dad is almost 30 years sober.

    I seriously hope you can over come alcoholism, not many people can and I really hope you have a shit ton of family and friends standing behind you.
    My best friend, he’s an asshole- always will be, hit rock bottom hard and it took many years in jail and other shit to keep him alcohol free. If I didn’t have him in my life I’d still be a struggling depressed mess. He gave me the kick in the ass that I needed. I hope you have tons of people to kick your ass and help you through this.
    I am very glad that your fiance rushed you to the hospital she saved your life and I hope you thank her everyday. I am sick of people throwing their lives away with shit alcohol. Its fine in moderation but yeah…..not everyday till you almost die.
    Please take care of yourself and choose water over wine. :) <3

    I’m a recovering alcoholic myself and also a musician. Alcohol is a really crazy thing. It’s hard to deal with. Trust your higher power to restore you back to strength. Us alcoholics are powerless over the drink. It’s impossible to drink responsibly when you are an alcoholic. It’s a hard industry to be in when you are an alcoholic too. Other musicians beware. Drinking isn’t all fun and games when youre an alcoholic. Of course it may start out that way but it quickly leads to a horrible life and a lot of mess to clean up. I hope you mend quick. Be well and get back to playing music! Good luck. I will keep you in my thoughts.

    Deryck. You were my hero when I was growing up. You’re music, Sum 41’s music, was the type of energy I needed to get through tough times when I was getting horribly bullied during my middle school years. I idolized your mentality and enthusiastic attitude you had with your band, your fans, and in your music. I’ve listened to every album & EP you’ve released and watched all of those web videos of your Underclass Hero tour. Everything you wrote in your music connected to exactly what I had in my mind. Your music was my voice. It hurts to see you now like this and I wish you the best and a full recovery, both physically and spiritually.

    Sometimes you have to hit the rock bottom to realize that it can’t go on like this… When everything is fine it’s hard to say “I gotta stop doing this”. But once you see that it’s all or nothing, that’s when it all changes. Stay strong, you’re on a very difficult path right now, but with the help from the people close to you and your band and music, you will do just fine. Greetings from Poland!

    Hi Deryck,
    Sorry to say that I never heard of you before I saw a news article on your plight – not your fault though, I’m 44 years old and no, I don’t listen to Barry Manilow either. Anyway, I just wanted to say that what you have done is very inspiring and courageous. To come out like you did and share the truth will ( I sincerely hope) de-glamorize alcohol and all its evils.

    I myself am in recovery after 20 odd years of drinking and I found myself in almost the exact situation you’re in. Alcohol only leads to three things: death, jail or institutions. I also know how incredibly hard it is to quit (ergo, my 1-year stint in the latter). While in said institution, I CRAVED my family, friends and my freedom soooo BADLY!! I couldn’t believe that I had lost them (not to mention a HUGE chunk of my liver too). It turned out that EVERYTHING I was looking for was right under my nose the whole time. Perhaps it took my rock-bottom to finally APPRECIATE it. Sorry, I don’t mean to sound preachy. Just wanted to say that you’re a brave man and hopefully, your story can keep others from the same perils. You’re in my prayers Deryck. And please remember, with an enemy like alcohol, It’s not about “staying strong” – for we are indeed powerless over it – it’s about letting a power greater than yourself into your corner and trusting HIM to protect you. I mean REALLY, REALLY trust.
    God Bess you,
    Pat

    Deryck, I am crushed to see you like this.

    Your music has gotten me through so much. My best memories all have Sum 41’s music in the background, and I dreamed of meeting and hanging out with you guys almost every day. Despite growing out of a lot of the music I listened to as a kid, I have never grown out of Sum 41, to this day, nothing makes me feel as good as listening to your music.

    I hope that you can heal and feel peaceful soon. I know that what you are going through is a struggle, a rough, terrible struggle, but I hope that you can keep away from the drinks, so that you can get better and learn to enjoy life without a drink in your hand.

    I admire your courage in posting this for the world to see, and I am sending good vibes, thoughts and prayers your way.

    I am happy to see you have someone’s hand to hold in one of your photos. I am sure there are a lot of people who love you dearly, including your fans who are all holding your hand in spirit. We are rooting for you! You can and will come out of this, and you will be better.

    HI Deryk. Hope your body is slowly healing. Your arms look very familiar. It was only a couple months ago I lay in the same bed suffering from liver failure , c-diff, gastritis, colitis, gall stones, cyst on my ovary and 46lbs of fluid retained in my body. All caused from misuse of alcohol. It is wonderful to see you willing to accept this challenge to stay sober and I’m sure they have restricted your diet and fluid intake. It is a life altering experience and one that you take a hold of and run with or take for granted. I appreciate you sharing your story and will pray that your body , mind, and soul heal and allow you to live a fulfilled long healthy life. Take care Daryk! Take care!

  228. You look like shit dude.

    I will say some prayers for you. And despite what I’m about to say, yeah, I feel compassion for you.

    The emptiness you feel inside can never be filled with anything in this “rockstar” lifestyle you all think is so glamorous. From my vantage point and the view of millions of others, you look like another junkie in a hospital bed, another alcoholic “one drink” away from death. Those pics look anything but glamorous or fun. You’re on a world stage man. A place where you can use your celebrity for good and this is the fucked up shit you do. Get it together. Get in recovery, get some help. Get to the core issues of why you use drinking to cope with life. Use music as a healthy coping skill.

    Take care.

    Alcohol is such and evil drug I have watch so many people die from it. Why the government still has this legal will baffle me forever. I really hope you can pull through this Deryck and overcome the addiction which will be the hardest thing you will do in your life. I am going on 13 years sober and not a day goes by where I think oh it’s be nice to have a drink with this or that. You just need to rise above that urge and beat it, for you, your family and your friends. You are young and so talented don’t be another statistic. Thoughts are with you and your family. Sending positive vibes your way.

      I live in a small town up in the Co Rockies and I see people dying all the time from alcohol. It sickens me when I go thru town and see people I know staggering about with swollen bellies and red faces. They know they are dying from it and they don’t care. Prohibition didnt work on a federal level and it doesn’t work on local levels either. There are a lot of “dry” counties and all that does is create black market booze.

    Quitting drinking is very tough. I’ve been sober for 3 1/2 years and I still get cravings. I strongly suggest looking into rehab or AA. Best of luck. There’s tons of alcoholics out there for you to lean on for support. It’s tough, but it is possible.

    Getting sober is a journey. The first few weeks after hitting your bottom is actually the easiest time because your near death experience is fresh. Please get help from either a counselor or AA. An alcoholic brain will begin to twist the memories and begin to tell you it wasn’t so bad. That’s when you will need help. GL to you!

    Hello Deryck,

    Always been a huge fan of your music. It was pretty much the soundtrack for every good party back in the day. I recently turned 33 this month, which fucking sucks, but I’m glad to be here. I have done a lot of crazy shit in my day, had a lot of good times, and drank a lot of booze. Around 30-31 though shit started to get bad for me. Panic attacks, weight gain, all that crap. Finally got to the point where I had to give up the booze completely or else I would die. I see that in you bud. Time to give it up and move to the next phase in your life. Sounds lame but it’s actually more fulfilling then getting smashed.

    I look forward to new music in the future and I look forward to seeing you beat this.

    Deryck- I am an ICU nurse and have seen hepatorenal failure in many people. It is truly an awful condition, and in my opinion one of the worst ways to die. I am shocked to see how ill you are, and feel compelled to reach out. Take care of yourself. This is it. It is do or die time. I hope you can turn things around for yourself, because you are way too young to be throwing in the towel. Big hug to you.

    Liquor as a coping mechanism just cannot be sustained, as I’m sure you now know. If you can find something positive to replace it with, there is no reason you can’t come back 100%.

  252. Hey man,

    I read about your struggle and wanted to reach out. I am also a musician and have struggled with alcohol for a long time. I’ve been arrested a handful of times for alcohol related issues, lost friends, and hurt the people that matter the most to me. I dig that your not preaching about it, I am the same way. Some people can handle it and good for them, have fun. I on the other hand can’t. I’ve been sober now a couple of years, with only a few relapses in between. It’s a struggle man, but it does get easier over time. At first, it feels like the devil is constantly whispering in your ear whenever some shit comes up to just take a drink and forget about it. You just have to stay strong because that voice gets quieter and quieter. Keep focused on your music, and the people that matter to you. Good luck man, your not alone, you can do it!

However, I still can’t stop drinking . I spent 10 days in the hospital over this past Xmas with acute pancreatitis from drinking. The docs told me it was possible I would die if I continued drinking, but I only lasted a week out of the hospital before I started again. And I feel bad pains in my abdomen now all the time. I put down my e-mail in those fields. I was wondering if u could contact me, I have a couple of questions for u. I think a few questions and u might be able to help me. Please? Aaron

    Get yourself to AA and NA meetings as soon as you are able. Knowing you’ll die with one more drink is not enough to keep you sober as the grip of alcohol is all consuming, It takes learning a new way of life. Take it one day at a time, Literally. There may be meetings at the hospital. Ask and see. Recovery IS possible. It’s my greatest wish for you. ~MaryElM

I cannot commend you enough for showing kids and adults out there the unromantic side of heavy drinking. I haven’t drank in 5 years and they have been the best years of my life. The first 3 months can be really tough, just take it minute by minute, second by second, and you’ll be fine.

    addiction is a beast. can’t say i’ve ever been a fan but i wish you and your family the best. hopefully the worst is behind you. stay strong dude.

  280. I am the editor of Inquisitr.com, a major news website that covered your recent health crisis.( I won’t link the article here. If anyone wishes to read it, they may go to our website.)

    Instead, I would like to wish you well, Deryck, and give you all my prayers for a complete recovery. As someone who is a recovered heroin and cocaine addict with 35 years of sobriety, I am living proof that it is possible to live a fulfilling and vital life.

    Addiction is a disease. It is not a sign of weakness or a flaw in anyone’s character. Take one day at a time, regain your health, surround yourself with supportive people, and make great music. I look forward to reviewing your next album and assigning a reporter to write about your next tour. I hope all your future dreams come true.

    I’m so sorry to hear about this, but I am glad you’re on the mend. I just wanted to say thank you for all your music, it has especially helped me through a couple of rough years.

    I went through the exact same thing a little over two years ago. I’m 26 so my number got called a bit earlier. I don’t know if you read this but I get it. I get the feeling that it isn’t fair that some guys booze hard there whole lives and we get cut short. That feeling passes. The beginning is not gonna be easy but the payoff will be huge. You’ve inspired me (being a kid from Pickering) and helped me achieve many personal music goals. I want you to know you are not on this alone. I didn’t go to groups or anything like that, much like you I was not given an option. Drink and die. If you decide the groups and religion is all whack and not for you, do not be afraid to turn to others online, if anything just for inspiration on a bad day.
    You got this.

    I would like to genuinely thank everyone one for your kind words and support. My condition has not improved much. But the doctors are confident maybe. Please keep praying for my family and I.

  287. Hi Deryck, you’ll probably never see this, but I’m very sorry to hear about the hard time you’re having right now. I want to tell you about my son. He just turned three last month and heard “still waiting” on my iPod not too long ago. Since then, every time we get in the car he asks to listen to his “super hero song”. SUPER HERO. He loves it. He’s loved every sum41 song he’s heard. I don’t know how to explain it. But even to small people who don’t understand lyrics, music -your music- has an impact. Don’t let go of your inspiration and drive. As a person, you are strong enough to conquer any challenge you face. Get well soon. <3

    I am happy to hear that you are making a choice to lead a life alcohol free, many have lost the battle, a cousin of mine has died this year because he did not listen to the doctor 3 years ago. Same age as me, we were belly buddies, dead at 35. My parents drink all the time and are getting sick, I often wonder what it will take for them to quit, what will motivate their will, encourage them, or inspire them to make the decision. I have quit a few years ago. Reading your blog has given me hope that people can change. A suggestion on writing songs, maybe use the comments people have written. May you touch many people in time. God love you.

    You got this Deryck! As a thirty two year old alcoholic I can relate. After years of heavy drinking my liver was about to give out. In a few days I will be one year sober. I keep my hospital bracelet in my wallet to remind me. Look at that bracelet and take yourself back there when you feel weak and have the urge to drink ask yourself, “is it worth going back?” Get a big book and read. You got this!

    get some milk thistle extract, rebuild your strength, start back in again. The docs are wrong, or rather, not right forever – yes, you could’ve topped yourself if you kept on that night but no reason to just plain stop. And if you do stop, and then in few months have another – if you’ve listened to the docs you’ll think ‘wtf, might as well go all in’ when in fact you oughtn’t do.

    Hi Deryck,

    17 years ago at the age of 24 I woke up in the emergency room suffering from alcohol withdrawal, seizures, hallucinations etc. A week later when I was released, I picked up the phone and called AA. I haven’t drank since. I always thought a life without drinking is not worth living, but I am here to tell you, by every fibre of my being, that that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Today, I am a happily married family man and own a medical consulting company, and I owe it all to the men and woman in AA.

    If you want what we have, contact AA or even email me for more information. (I am in the Toronto area)

    I wish the very best for you on your journey through sobriety. Ian

  292. Get well dude! Hoping you take your second chance and run with it!

    Take it easy.

    Barry

  293. Hope you get better man…I’m trying to quit myself. I saw those pictures of you in the hospital (scary) while I was drinking and now I’m finally going to go to an AA meeting, but more importantly get your health back.

  294. StinkyPits Reply

    I’m not even a fan, mate. I am however, the same age, know how the band scene can encourage drinking and all that… I only gave up drinking due to an (still unremembered to this day) accident and waking up with serious injuries.
    I took a week or so to get my decision together and stop drinking, as it was killing me, too, from the inside, regardless of injury.
    I’m not religious or traditional in my beliefs, but that injury was a blessing in disguise. It is the best feeling in the world to survive potentially deadly situations. This is an opportunity to move ahead and look back in such a manner, and be happy where you have moved to, Deryck. I wish you that, and wish you an easy transition. Me, I have the greater blessing of no temptation and that from an understanding of exactly why I was drinking (that I didn’t really have during my time drinking). I was never a full-blown alcoholic, either, just ‘dependent’ on it for relaxing, socialising – or stopping boredom at sound-checks and such.

    Sure, you seem well on the way to overcoming this, Deryck. Allow it not to feel forced, mate, so you don’t resent it.
    I find it true: as someone else said here, alcohol is a poison and it’s fun to play with, but like me, you perhaps needed more than others and the body cannot tolerate that level of poison. Nor a smaller level once you’ve pushed it that far, as I did.
    Find something else to do with your money saved by not drinking. I gave myself a rare holiday after 9 months of not drinking and it was amazing. Find something else to do if you were drinking out of boredom.
    My guitarist is great, but he is also a (functional) alcoholic, a guy who gets bored very easily and is roughly the same age as us. There’s many people going through the same process, mate. Good luck with it and you’re not alone – remember that if you’re ever around lots of people all drinking in the future, it doesn’t matter, it’s their choice and your choice to survive a different way.

    My father passed away under extremely similar circumstances. He was an alcoholic, and hadn’t been feeling well for a while. My mother finally convinced him to go to our family doctor. Our doctor took one look at him, and immediately wanted him transported to the hospital. Once there, they were doing tests, and when he went of for a CT, he stopped breathing. They had to intubate him, and sedate him. He never woke up. We took him into the hospital on a Monday, he died that Thursday of liver and kidney failure. Please know how lucky you are, and use this opportunity to turn your life around, because not everyone is as fortunate to wake up again.

    You can make a complete recovery. It will be a slow process but it will happen. You will have a lot of ups and downs. When you are feeling real bad remember these healing pains. How you feel today will be different them 90 days, 6 months, 1 year from now. As time passes it will get better and better. By 3 years you will become stronger then you were before you started drinking. Also be carful of long term benzodiapine use if the doctor is prescribing them.
    Take it a day at a time or an hour at a time. It will get a lot better. I will be following your recovery.

    I just lost my husband to this disease on 5/1/14. He was just shy of 36. He was hospitalized from 3/20 to 5/1, where he was transferred to hospice because there was nothing more the doctors could do. He lasted 2 1/2 hours at hospice.
    He wanted to be able to blog about his recovery so I was tasked with taking photos. Seeing your photos brings back a lot of emotions and I just want to share with you that the doctors are right, one more drink and you WILL die. Not to mention that in the event of liver failure, you will likely have no idea what is going on due to the toxins building up in your brain, causing severe confusion. I don’t think my husband knew what was going on in the end, but everyone else did.
    It’s called “the family disease” for a reason.
    Please take care of yourself, the liver is a tough organ but also a very important one that will give up on you if you don’t take care of it.

I’ll wait till 2025 for a new album or song if I have too. The last thing fans will want is you dead. You’re a human being, probably one of the nicest and honest celebs out there. Fuck, move out of LA if you need too. Most people there are douche bags and you’re way better and talented then that!

    Dear Deryck, my name is Evan Sales.

    I am a musician, and a car enthusiast, but more than anything I am an addict. I spent 11 years abusing drugs in many forms, alcohol, meth, cocaine, E, MDMA, cigarettes, but mostly marijuana. Whenever I quit any other drug, I always replaced it with more marijuana. Recently, about 66 days ago today I stopped using marijuana, and I chose to start living clean and sober. It’s very difficult at times, but when it stops being hard, everything gets so much easier. My life has been fairly challenging in different ways, but I’ve always been able to persevere and keep putting my left foot in front of my right foot, and continue to move forward.

    I remember back when I was in Jr. High, I never felt really “cool”, mostly because I wasn’t. I started using drugs because I thought it was the cool thing to do, but it’s not. I also remember listening to Sum 41 really loud, because I loved your music, and I enjoyed it because I thought you and your band were “cool”. I felt cool because you guys were cool. Deryck, you’re a cool guy because you’re talented and very capable of making inspiring music. Dude, take it from me, you can live a healthy lifestyle and continue to inspire peoples lives in a lot of different ways. I hope that your challenges are met by your supports and friends and family, but more than anything I hope that you’re able to find the part inside of you that is broken so you can fix it, mend it, or throw it out. I don’t need any form of inebriation to feel “cool” anymore, and I know that you’ll be able to get to that point too. I really hope that you will continue to pursue music, and pursue health.

    Keep fighting, keep loving, keep yourself.

    Your friend,
    Evan.

    Deryck. Your music got me through all the tough times in my life. You gave me hope, in a way you will never understand. I have always thought you had the voice of an angel. I am not religious lol at all like you, but when I would hear you sing I would think that it was not really of this earth. Whenever I felt alone, or depressed your voice lifted me up. I love all your music, and I love when you play acoustic. Your cover of Morning Glory by Oasis is one of my favourites.

    You were given a gift and a platform to reach people and connect. You find the lyrics and melodies that help others going similar struggles feel normal. I wanted to just let you know by this message what an impact you have made on me and all of us. I hope you get well soon, it looks like you have truly suffered. I want to let you know that it is ok to ask for help. It is hard to talk to a counsellor at first, it feels embarrassing to ask for help I get it. Sometimes it is necessary because the pain inside never goes away if you do not address it. If you try to disassociate from the pain/problem it still is there. If you try to numb, or drink the problem away it is still there. I mean if there is some mental anguish that made you want to drink maybe you should look into it. It is hard to deal with sometimes, when you don’t have your old coping mechanisms. Thus I would encourage you to talk to someone soon, because the impulses to cope with things the old way might come back and you need to find a new way to vent and deal with your frustrations. They can teach you new coping techniques like meditation, or exercise. I go running to help myself. I hope you seize each and every day, because now you realize the frailty of life . I hope that your music helps you to heal emotionally, physically, and mentally. Be strong for your fans, your family, I know it is hard when you feel so terrible. You are stronger than you realize. We all love you in Canada buddy. I look forward to the day that I get to hear you play live again. <3 Laura

    Stay strong Deryck, such a difficult time for you but you can make it through. I have so much respect for yoyou writing about what happened to you, takes a hell of alot to open up and just be honest. Looking forward to the new record. Much love x

  365. It’s so sad to see you like that,I hope you get well soon. Let’s just look at the bright side and be thankful that you are still alive at least now you know that you cannot drink as much as you used to. It is so brave of you to come forward and admit that you had a problem with drinking because some people with the same problem would be in denial and go back to their old ways shortly after getting out of the hospital, I really hope that you’ll pay more attention to your health and take care of your body from here on. I wish you all the best.

    Regards,
    Dennis

    Deryck,
    I just wanted to write you to let you know how much Sum41 and you have been an inspiration to me. I’m 24 years old now, married, and I have my own child, but I have always loved your music! Everytime I hear any sum41 songs it reminds me of my middle school/high school days and the troubles/ problems I went through. Your music was always there to comfort me and put a smile on my face. I finally saw you guys live, for the very first time in Asheville, NC, that was in 2012. I cried I was so happy. It hurts to see you like this, even if I don’t personally know you, I feel like I do in many ways. I’m thinking about you through this difficult time and you will overcome this. I’m so happy you survived this and you can share your struggle with others who might need your help. Stay strong! And thanks for all of the great memories.

    Love, Raechel

    stay strong and as a fan of your band I have to say your better than a beer or a shot of hard liquor, stronger than a pint, and straighter then a joint. being straight edge can save you and remember “you drink the booze you lose”. I hope to recover and enjoyed the tour when you performed at house of blues on January 2013.
