‘And that is the most triggering thing that you could possibly write about somebody with an eating disorder. That sucked, and I wanted to quit, I wanted to use, wanted to give up…’ added the Confidence singer who rose to fame as a Disney star alongside Selena Gomez.

‘And then I just realized that if I don’t look at those things then they can’t affect me. So, I stopped looking and I just really try not to look at anything negative.’

But despite the negativity, the Sober singer will still be open about her own struggles.

She added: ‘I think the positives outweigh the negatives. I think that if they didn’t, I wouldn’t be doing this.’

However, Demi admitted she does find it ‘draining’ to be so candid with her fans, particularly when they share such emotional experiences.

She said: ‘It’s draining, yes, and it’s hard. There’s reasons why my meet and greets have gotten a lot shorter over the years.

‘More than a handful of people would tell you each time, ‘You saved my life,’ or they would show me the cuts on their wrists.

‘I know that they mean well, I know that they are confiding in me because they have no one else. But it does take a lot.’

Meanwhile, Demi recently revealed she has been smoking marijuana and drinking alcohol ‘in moderation’.

Speaking in YouTube docu-series ‘Demi Lovato: Dancing With The Devil’, she said: ‘I’ve learned that it doesn’t work for me to say that I’m never going to do this again… I know I’m done with the stuff that’s going to kill me, right?

‘Telling myself that I can never have a drink or smoke marijuana, I feel like that’s setting myself up for failure because I am such a black-and-white thinker.

‘I had it drilled into my head for so many years that one drink was equivalent to a crack pipe… [I’ve] been smoking weed and drinking in moderation.’
