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.

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.

Remorseful, never gonna drink again, family feels they've finally broken through to the person, family nurses them back to health...

...and then once on their feet, they start getting more confident again, then they start drinking again, then another major binge again.

...only to be nursed back to health again.

Before u get nasty folks, THIS is someone's child. This person aside from celebrity is a real guy. Not some make believe character. His family loves him. He's struggling. He's lucky. That Skit whatever will get punched in the eye at some point. Negative breeds negative. It's coming so look out fool.

He looks like a 12 year old special needs kid.
He did this to himself so it is all of his fault.
