Eminem: 'My addictions nearly killed me'

Jun 27 2013, 8:28pm CDT | by

Eminem thought he was going to die from his addiction to prescription drugs.

The 'Lose Yourself' rapper went to rehab for treatment for a dependency on medication and considered suicide at his lowest point and Eminem, 40, admitted his drug dependency almost killed him.

Speaking in new documentary, 'How To Make Money Selling Drugs', he said: "When I took my first Vicodin, it was like this feeling of 'Ahh.' Like everything was not only mellow, but [I] didn't feel any pain.

"I don't know at what point exactly it started to be a problem. I just remember liking it more and more. People tried to tell me that I had a problem. I would say 'Get that f**king person outta here. I can't believe they said that s**t to me. I'm not out there shooting heroin. I'm not f**king out there putting coke up my nose. I'm not smoking crack."

"Xanax, Valium, tomato, tomatoe, it's same thing ... F**k it, take it."

Speaking about one incident where he was rushed to the emergency room, Eminem - whose real name is Marshall Mathers - said: "Had I got to the hospital about two hours later, I would have died. My organs were shutting down. My liver, kidneys, everything.

"They were gonna have to put me on dialysis. They didn't think I was gonna make it. My bottom was gonna be death."

While the rapper is now clean, he admitted detoxing was a huge struggle.

He said: "Coming off everything, I was literally was up 24 hours a day for three weeks straight," he says. "And I mean, not sleeping, not even nodding off for a f**king minute.

"I had to regain motor skills, I had to regain talking skills. It's been a learning process, I'm growing. I couldn't believe that anybody could be naturally happy without being on something. So I would say to anybody 'It does get better.' "
