Post Malone is doing better now.
While promoting his new album Twelve Carat Toothache, the 26-year-old opened up about his past struggles with alcohol, calling himself “responsible now.”
“It was a really rough point, and I couldn’t get up off the floor for weeks,” he shared on SiriusXM’s The Howard Stern Show on June 12. “It was screwdrivers, it was vodka and it was bodying fifths and trying to hang in there and talking to people who weren’t f – king there.”
Despite having “so much guidance” from pals like Justin BieberMalone said recalled feeling like he was “trapped in” his own world with the destructive attitude of “I have to do what I want to do and that’s what I’m going to do.”
Eventually, the musician realized he needed “to do a lot less talking and a lot more listening” and began working on being more open to advice from others, including his fiancéewho he credits with helping him navigate his rough period.
