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.

There's always some insecure desperate whore that still sees these guys as the "rockstars" they may have been for a VERY brief moment in time, instead of the drug addicts and alcoholics that they really are, that haven't had a hit in 10 years. They're always thinking "I'm going to fix him, he loves me!"

You're exactly right. Crack and cocaine cause the renal failure. Call your local nephrologist. Alcohol is toxic to liver. Unless the muscle breakdown of rhabdomyolysis created the cast formation in his kidneys causing renal failure, he did crack or cocaine.

Skit, it's a matter of those affected to learn coping skills coupled with choosing the right people to be around. It is a disease. Some have more addictive personalities than others. Either way, it is a day-to-day achievement when a person quits. Meaning, they may still have the desire to drink but know that the reason they quit was likely due to losing support of friends, family....maybe losing a job...or, simply the desire to just be sober again. I have taken neurology classes with extensive review of genetics -- and I assure you, It's a disease. One thing you'll learn, likely when you become more mature, is that it's not right to judge -- as I assure you that you'll hope that to be the case when you yourself make a mistake -- alas, it appears you're an angel w/ no mishaps up-to-date.

So that explains why he married Avril and pretends to be a punk while making pop music...he's a drunk. It all makes sense now. Either way...get better dude, and consider a career change?

So sad. Hope he is able to get past this. Too bad they can't do gene therapy to turn the alcoholic gene off.
