Demi Lovato tells teens to say no to drugs and alcohol
Demi Lovato has urged young fans to avoid
drinking to excess, declaring: "Sober is sexy!"
The singer/actress is speaking out about
addiction after entering rehab last year (10) to tackle her
self-harming and eating disorder issues.
The 18 year old insists she's "made a
commitment" to be healthy and wants her devotees to follow her
example by saying no to drugs and alcohol.
In a column for Seventeen magazine, she
writes, "'Sober Is Sexy' is my new motto, and it couldn't be more
true! All you need to have fun in life is a great attitude and good
friends. I've made a commitment to myself to live a happy healthy
life the best way I know how and I want to spread the message that
you don't need to do drink or do drugs to have fun.
"I think a lot of people our age start off
experimenting with drugs and alcohol as innocent fun, out of
curiosity, or because their friends are doing it. Often times this
'innocent fun' can lead to very serious issues like drunk driving,
bad choices and in some cases - addiction. Addiction is a very
serious disease, and it doesn't just go away.
"I've suffered from an eating disorder which
is an addiction, and I will have to work on my recovery every day
for the rest of my life. It's an ongoing battle but one that is
well worth it, and I've never felt happier...
"Remember: SOBER IS SEXY! Trust me, you look
a lot cuter SOBER than SLOPPY! Stay Strong!"
