Demi Lovato, who has openly spoken about her past personal struggles, is now revealing more about her rehab treatment.
In a nutshell: it saved her life.
Talking about her new book, Staying Strong: 365 Days a Year (read an excerpt here), Demi explained, "The harsh reality is that I wouldn't be alive. I wouldn't have a book or be a judge. I wouldn't be alive."
She added, "At one point nobody thought I was going to make it. But here I am, standing here today as a judge. I am here today breathing and have a heartbeat, and that is what I am thankful for."
Demi further explained, "This book helps me continue to help me love myself, and it changes my self esteem and my thought process. I just feel a lot happier. I feel great."
She touched on the opportunity to be a role model and "doing the things I am supposed to do in this world," adding, "This [book] is one of the small ways I can make a difference--if it changes one person's life or makes someone happy and changes their energy in their day."
