I hope Eminem’s stans don’t resort to popping pills in their search for the same lyrical Holy Grail he once drunk from. Let’s keep an eye on the fallout from this jaw-dropping revelation.
” ‘My doctor told me those mysterious new pills were methadone, which is used to wean heroin addicts off dope. Had I known it was methadone, I probably wouldn’t have taken it. But as bad as I was back then, I can’t even say 100 percent for sure. My doctor told me the amount of methadone I’d taken was equivalent to shooting up four bags of heroin. Even when they told me I almost died, it didn’t click.’ After detoxing, Eminem suffered a knee injury that required surgery, but because of his recent drug abuse, he was not prescribed painkillers. He recalls, ‘I started looking around my house to see if I had a stash box of Vicodin…I’m ransacking my house, finally find something in the basement, in a little napkin, seven and a half Vicodin—the big extra strength ones—and a few Valium.’ The rapper soon relapsed for the second time and finally admitted to himself he was an addict. ‘It never once hit me that drug addiction runs in my family. Now that I understand that I’m an addict, I definitely have compassion for my mother. I get it.’ ”
