Deryck Whibley

Alive But Wasting Away in First Pic

Since Near-Death Experience

5/19/2014 3:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley is a shell of himself -- looking shockingly frail today as he leaned on others for support ... days after admitting he nearly died from years of hardcore drinking. 

Deryck had to be held up by two women during a walk in Los Angeles.

On Friday, Deryck revealed he'd been laid up in a hospital bed for a month, and confessed on his blog... "the reason i got so sick is from all the hard boozing i’ve been doing over the years. it finally caught up to me."

Deryck says his liver and kidneys collapsed, and docs have told him if he has one drink he will die.

The damage is obvious when you remember how Deryck looked in his heyday with Avril Lavigne.

I had to respond after reading some of these comments something I never do because it's not worth the time. Especially the hateful and mean ones. You haters who constantly post on TMZ must have a pathetic life. I pray for him to get well soon!! As humans we all rise and fall, but who we are is judged by what we do after that happens. I did not know this band until I just listened to them on iTunes. I bought a few songs.

I hope you're reading this Deryck and I want you to know that you're very talented, and I hope that you recover from your illness very soon. I personally fell from a high point in my life and I can't tell you how difficult I found that to be. Illnesses like this are hard to recover from but I know you can do it. With hard work, the right support group, the right group therapy, I know you're going to make it.

Who is that guy? He looks like Leonardo Dicaprio when he played that little retarded boy. I hope he gets better tho. Alcohol destroys the body worse than any drug if abused daily

Alcohol is a horrible disease. Hope Deryck has a full recovery and can be a positive role model for today's youth.
