Demi Lovato has been sober for three years now, and the 22-year-old former Disney star largely credits her boyfriend with her sobriety.

In her interview with Cosmopolitan, Lovato talked breaking up with Wilmer Valderrama when she relapsed.

“The only times we ever broke up were when I was relapsing, whether it was drugs or in a bad place and rebelling against everybody, not just him,” Lovato said. “People say that relapses happen before you use. Your mind starts setting up the relapse before you take that drink or that first hit.” (RELATED: Selena Gomez Forced To Hold Her Cleavage Together)

“The times we’d broken up, I had already gone to that place of, ‘Yeah, this is what’s happening.’ I didn’t realize it at the time, but I just wanted to sabotage everything around me so that I could sabotage myself.”​

When speaking about her past drug use, Lovato has said she couldn’t go 30 minutes without doing cocaine.

“I would smuggle it basically and just wait until everyone in first class would go to sleep and I would do it right there. I’d sneak to the bathroom and I’d do it.” (VIDEO: Former Disney Channel Star Releases Shockingly Scandalous Music Video)
