Famous Addiction Quotes Eminem [Reference Sources]Eminem’s statements about drug abuse

I remember recently watching a documentary film called “How to make money selling drugs.” It’s a documentary about dealing drugs and using substances. And Eminem was in it giving an interview in which he openly spoke about his addiction to prescription medications, including Vicodin, Xanax and Valium.

In fact, in the film he captures the state of addiction almost perfectly when he states:

“I don’t know at what point exactly it started to be a problem. I just remember liking it more and more.”

We thought that many people who share the same issues can relate to his claims and would agree with him. At the peak of his addiction, he was taking up to 60 Valium and 30 Vicodin pills a day. In the interview, Eminem also recalls nearly dying after he overdosed on his prescription pills, and says:

“My organs were shutting down. My liver, my kidneys, everything…They didn’t think I was going to make it. My bottom was going to be death.”

  1. Hi Tina. Hang in there! Your recovery is worth it. And thanks for sharing your story about your bottom. We all have one, can can help others by relating.

  2. I jus wanted to Saul a little something bout Eminem saying “his bottom was gonna be his death and about his organs shutting down. I jus wanted to say that I can definitely relate, because on February 10th of 2013 although I don’t recall very much I ended up in a “HEPATIC COMA” from consuming Waaaaaay tooooo much alcohol and apparently a whole lot of pills. According to all the doctors, both my alcohol and pill,(opiates, anti-anxiety, anti-depressants, & sleep meds) levels were off the chart. As I’ve said I do not recall very much. Anyway I have since learned that two weeks leading up to this horrible incident my neighbors informed me that I was consuming at least two 40oz bottles of vodka per day and I’m not sure how many pills but my point is that when I was informed of how close to death I came and for the fact of doctors telling me that I consume one more drink of alcohol it could possibly kill me. I have now been sober for jus over 2yrs now. My rock bottom to me or so I thought was some yrs prior to this was when I sold myself numerous times a day for money for crack but I now know that my rock bottom was when I woke up nd found out that my brother nd my best fried had spent 3days in the “QUIET ROOM” nd that doctors didn’t think I was gonna even last 3hrs after my arrival to emerg. I think I jus got off track there. But way to go to Eminem and all others who have chosen “SOBRIETY”. And it’s not an easy road to be on at all. It’s a daily challenge….
