Deryck Whibley

Alive But Wasting Away in First Pic

Since Near-Death Experience

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.

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

Very sad to see anyone his age in such bad shape. Deryck: You have a chance to live, I hope you will take it. Good luck.

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

Family members live in a constant state of worry wondering how bad the next binge is going to be & when they'll get the next phone call.

Family members feel they are obligated to come to his rescue every time he goes on a binge.... it's exhausting for the family members.

Usually, the family members are emotionally sick by getting sucked into the addicts addiction.

Two words, my man, MEDICAL MARIJUANA. You won't feel the need to drink and you obviously need to get a case of the munchies in a really bad way right now.
