August Alsina Opens Up About Percoset Addiction and Liver Disease on Latest Episode of “Red Table Talk”

#JadaPinkettSmith’s Facebook show “Red Table Talk” never fails to enlighten and engage us. This week the panel’s guest was #AugustAlsina who opened up about his liver disease and being addicted to Percoset.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
On Monday, the 25-year-old R&B singer discussed how he defeated his addiction and how life is now that he’s sober. “I was pretty much doing way too many shows, not taking care of myself,” he said. “I was drinking so much liquor. Smoking so much weed. Just one night at a show in New York, I literally passed out and fell off the stage [in 2014].”

His addiction was so bad he even briefly faced death. The singer flatlined twice and went into a coma for three days. Medical officials then gave Alsina the painkiller Percoset. “I literally had an endless supply of Percs,” he shared. “If you asked my brother, anybody … I’m like, raining Percs. Off my body, off my house. I was literally raining pills like Skittles.”
