There's no question this must be excruciatingly difficult on the entire family.

Sam Smith may have the voice of an angel, but he still has his demons.
We've known about the 22-year-old's weight loss desires for a while, but now he's getting candid about how much his food addiction has really affected him.
"When I was at school and wasn't having a great time or when music wasn't going very well. I would eat, eat… eating would make me feel better, when I felt lonely I would eat.
If someone calls me a f****t it's like, 'I am gay and I'm proud to be gay,' so there's no issues. But if someone calls you fat, that's something I want to change,"
That's so sad!
But at least now he's working on bettering himself.
Good luck, Sam!
