This says the letter of sober
“I have no excuses for all these goodbyes. Call me when it’s over, because I’m dying inside. This is how “Sober” begins, the recent song with which Demi Lovato admits her relapse to drugs.
In the first verse of the song, Demi also makes a direct allusion to the dreaded withdrawal syndrome: “Wake me up when the seizures are over. And the cold sweats vanished. Call me when it’s over and I’ve reappeared myself.” Then, Demi Lovato is even more direct when talking about her addiction. “Mom, I’m sorry, I’m not sober anymore. And daddy, please forgive me for the spilled drinks on the floor. For those of you who never left me, we’ve been down this road before. I’m so sorry, I’m not sober anymore.”
