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 am willing to bet other drugs played a large role in all of this as well unless he was drinking like a liter a day for 10 years.

Wait, his fiancé is that giant person standing beside him?! It's strange when a taller, clearly larger girl is with a short skinny dude. And yeah, drinking didn't do that buddy. Lay off the drugs. He looks like a cancer patient!

Drinking can def do this. Our 35 yr old friend just died. Not everyone's liver and kidneys are able to handle daily drinking. If you survive kidney and liver failure, it's not really surviving. He will never be well again. Very sad and wish him well.

It's concerning how many commenters don't fully understand that drinking daily, or heavily can do this to your body. It causes organ failure, and you die or remain ill forever. Same result from drug abuse. Your body can only process so much, and each body has different limits. This guys limit has been reached, and he will never be healthy again. Self inflicted organ failure.

Going to go ahead and update the old saying,

Sex, Drugs and rock and roll, death....

Smoke pot, definitely doesn't kill you like alcohol.

Looking at that cute little street urchin makes me want to burst into song: "It's the hard knock life for us. It's the hard knock life for us!"

Did anyone else notice that t-shirt was in some PAPS photos a few years ago? Not a big deal I know. Hope he gets well
