Nick Carter Reveals Severity Of Drug And Alcohol Problems

| Filed under: DrugsNick Carter

wenn-nick-carter.jpg

In a new interview, former current Backstreet Boy Nick Carter talks about the extent of his drug and alcohol problems.

After suffering from chest pains, Carter was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy - a build up of toxins that prevent the heart from pumping blood efficiently - most likely caused by years of excess.

Doctors told him that if he didn't shape up, he'd end up…..dead.

The sobering news helped Carter clean up his shiteous act. He says, "I don't want to be that person people read about and think, 'That's sad that he couldn't stop it and killed himself.'"

8 months later, Nick's turned his lifestyle around, although he does admit it is difficult at times. Fortunately, he's surrounded with a good support group, who will help him out - should he need it.

Stay healthy Nick!

Don't die!

    Food may sometimes make an appearance in the feces. Common undigested foods found in human feces are seeds, nuts, corn and beans, mainly because of their high dietary fiber content. Artificial food coloring in some processed foods such as highly colorful packaged breakfast cereals can also cause unusual feces coloring if eaten in sufficient quantities.

    It's a shame you didn't put the pictures of him from that People article on the site–he looks AMAZING. Down 60+lbs, gorgeous six-pack abs, he looks better than, well, EVER! Further into the article, he also tells how he moved to Nashville and away from the Hollywood crowd that got him into harder drugs, such as cocaine. Wonder what crowd THAT was? Anyway–good for him…he looks healthy and handsome.

    To be diagnosed with cardiomyopathy is a major thing for someone who is young. And it is NOT a building up of toxins that prevents the blood from flowing properly. Cardiomyopathy is a deterioration of the function of the myocardium. Nick's specific cardiomyopathy is Intrinsic dilated cardiomyopathy and one of the causes is excessive use of drugs and alcohol. The severity of Nick's drug and alcohol problems must have been enormous and must have gone on for more years than he is admitting. Of course that reality show he did with his siblings was pretty telling of the lifestyle they led.

    Now depending on how early he was diagnosed, Nick could be a candidate for a heart transplant or at the least an implated defibrilator. And that's pretty sad for someone his age to have done this TO HIMSELF.

    Yeah, doesn't everyone who had a reality tv show have a drug abuse problem (or had one)? This is a story that gets really old fast - everyone is on drugs and everyone had a rough time after getting famous. BOO HOO

  39. 39

    Cardiomyopathy is not caused by the "build up of toxins."

    and dont publicly try to sell out playin the death card- using something so serious as suicide or overdosing to get people to notice you again. the lil brother is in worse shape it seems so get him help and just get your life together. your desperate need for public adoration is making the circus go round and round.



  41. 41
