Lil Xan Claims He Suffered Seizures Trying to Quit Drugs Cold Turkey, Completely Sober Now
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."
After relapsing again, it sounds like the rapper doing better.
