Lil Xan Claims He Suffered Seizures Trying to Quit Drugs Cold Turkey, Completely Sober Now
Lil Xan's struggle with drug addiction has been a reoccurring theme. Now the rapper claims he is completely sober following a fight to kick drugs cold turkey that had ill effects on his body.
On Monday (Nov. 18), TMZ interviewed the rapper about his harrowing ordeal with trying to get sober.
"You guys remember back when everyone was like, 'Oh, Diego's M.I.A. Where's Diego at' and stuff?" Xan asked. "I was in the hospital..because I stopped taking drugs...I went cold turkey 'cause I didn't want to be on drugs no more. But the withdrawals actually gave me seizures, you know what I mean? It was a wake-up call."
He added, "They said it was from going cold turkey off Xanax. I wanted to stop drugs completely, but I did it the wrong way, you know. I did it cold turkey and I had a couple seizures. I tried to bullshit and say I was sick but I just wasn't ready until right now to let the world know. Yea, I'm completely sober now."
He went on to say the overdose deaths of Lil Peep and Mac Miller were the main factors in him deciding to be drug free.
Xan checked himself into rehab last December. After two weeks in the facility, he checked out claiming to be clean. "Out And Sober 🙏🏼💔," he posted on social media.
After relapsing again, it sounds like the rapper doing better.
