Remember Sum 41 singer Deryck Whibley? He used to be married to Avril Lavigne? Well, it looks like Whibley has hit some dark times recently, taking to his blog to talk about his battle with alcoholism.

In his latest blog entry, titled ‘Rock Bottom’, Whibley writes, “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.”

Sure, from time to time I joke about drinking, but serious alcoholism is not joke, especially for Whibley. He writes, “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.”

Whibley’s fiancee, Jocelyn Aguilar, found him and rushed him to the hospital. Whibley was placed in the ICU. Pretty scary.

“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.”

That is certainly a scary experience! In fact, Whibley’s doctor informed that one more drink could do him in.

Whibley’s ex-wife Avril Lavigne took to Twitter to lend her support, writing, “Spoke to @Sum41 Deryck today. I am so proud of him. He is family to me and always will be. #StayStrongDeryck.”
