Struggle of Steven TylerWith Addiction

Steven Tyler has struggled with substance abuse and drug addiction in the past. He had tested and consumed a variety of different drugs, ranging from cocaine to methamphetamine, as per The List.

In an interview with GQ magazine in 2019, Steven revealed that he first started his journey with drugs in the mid-1960s. At that time it was only to the extent of a teenager smoking some harmless pot.

However, as the years progressed he lost control over his drug use and became addicted. Steven Tyler disclosed that he had a “no-holds-barred outlook” when it came to doing drugs and that he did everything like “heroin, coke, valium, anything that anyone came near with”.

During this time his situation and health deteriorated for the worse but he showed no signs of stopping.

Steven Tyler said, “What happens with using is: It works in the beginning, but it doesn’t work in the end. It takes you down. There’s nothing but jail, insanity, or death.

In another interview with Haute Living, Steven recalled that The early ’80s were terrible, and drugs took us down. I was the first one to get treatment. There was a moment in ’88 where management and the band pulled an intervention on me. I loved to get high so much, I fell into the well. I got so clouded up I didn’t know what this band was all about, didn’t realize how great it was.”

Steven Tyler confessed how thankful he was to the people who intervened and spoke up about his worrying drug addiction, guiding him towards change. People like his management and his band members in the late 80s implored him to check into rehab. “They thought, ‘Get the lead singer sober, and all our problems would be over”.
