In a candid documentary Simply Complicated the former Disney star talked about her sobriety, her battle with addiction and an eating disorder.  

 

"I was using while I had a sober companion and I went through like 20 sober companions," Lovato said. "I was either craving drugs or on drugs. I was not easy to work with. Its embarrassing to look back at the person that I was."

 

In the heartfelt song she reiterates that she's going to recover, singing, "Im sorry that Im here again / I promise Ill get help / It wasnt my intention / Im sorry to myself."
