Deryck Whibley Almost Died Because He’s a Drunk

I know you’ve been scouring the internet for the past however many months wondering where Deryck Whibley was. Well, let me put your mind at ease. He’s dead.

That is to say he would have been had he not been rushed to the hospital. In a recent blog post on his website, Whibley described how he collapsed into unconsciousness while drinking in front of the tv. His kidney and liver had up and quit on him.

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.

Drinking excessively every day can lead to organ failure? Wow! Who would have thought that? Are there any medical studies to back this up? Sounds like a bunch of hooey to me.
