I had a chance to talk to Demi Lovato backstage back in February of 2014, asking her what she would say to people battling any sort of addiction. She seemed really strong and happy when I talked to her. I hope she can get back to that place of happiness and strength again.
"What I learned is it's not worth it. A sober life is a better life. This is what it feels like to be happy and high off of life!" - Demi Lovato

In June when Demi released her song "Sober" we found out she had relapsed after a 6 year sobriety streak.
