British rocker Oli Sykes from Bring Me The Horizon recently has been discussing his past addiction to ketamine which is popular as a horse tranquilizer and club drug, and says it nearly drove him to suicide as reported by Luke Morgan Britton for NME:
Describing ketamine as a "scummy drug" that "disengages users from reality, causing hallucinations and distorted perception," the singer added, "It’s not cocaine. It’s cheap, easy and fast... It took my ego away. It took away who I was." Sykes explained how his addiction caused him to contemplate suicide, adding, "I nearly killed myself. I just didn't care whether I lived or not. I was very close [to suicide]. I wanted to die."
About a million or so fans are glad Sykes got clean, and now is putting out his best music ever.
