Aaron Carter Comes Clean about His Addiction to Huffing

Aaron Carter Comes Clean about His Addiction to Huffing


– We’re talking with Aaron
Carter about his recent struggles including the current
state of his mental health. – So Aaron, I know that you mentioned that this is what mental
health looks like. And I would disagree. I looked at your medical
list from before and now. I mean, these things
have contra indications. – Of course. – And they cause possibly
things like serotonin syndrome. And difficulties with
concentration and memory. And so there’s all of these
things that could be happening. And I know that you’re saying
that you’re clean and sober. But marijuana being part of your regimen doesn’t really strike people as sobriety. True sobriety means that you’re really not on any substances. When somebody has an addictive process already in their history, marijuana affects your brain
in a very different way than somebody who
actually has no problems. So somebody wants to use it medicinally, if they’ve never had addiction issues, that’s not a problem. When somebody has had
an addiction history, you can’t use marijuana because it has totally
different affects on your brain. – So, guess what’s happening? – [Dr. Judy] What? – I’m quitting smoking weed. Do you know why? – You’re gonna quit today? – [Aaron] Yeah. – And why? – Because it affects my medications. – [Dr. Judy] Yes, they do. – So it doesn’t allow my
medications to work properly. – You haven’t really
talked about the huffing. And that’s something that– – It’s something that I’ve kept secret from the whole world until now. I lied to you. I just told you the truth. Huffing was what I was doing. That’s why I have gabapentin
and I have to take fish oil. – Okay. – Because I have to repair the serotonin, the receptors, in my brain. – I want to ask you, the
huffing, when it started, how often you were doing
it, what you were huffing? – It started when I was about 16. My sister, Leslie, who
passed away from a overdose, got me into it. I didn’t really touch
it until I was about 23. Right after I did Dancing With The Stars. Then I started going to
Staples, and Office Depot, and different places buying it with cash so it wouldn’t be reported on receipts or anything like that. So no one could trace me or anything. I was huffing because I
was really (bleep) stupid, and sad, but there’s
really no excuse really. I was huffing because I’m a drug addict. I’m a drug addict. So, I’m a drug addict in recovery. You might not look at me
smoking weed as being sober but I do. – When was the last time you huffed? – When was the last? Right before you guys put me in rehab. – So you’re– – Is there any other test
we can do to prove that? – Well, that’s why huffing
is such a complex problem. You can’t do a test. – I’m aware of that. – And what it does to
your body physiologically can be just as bad as drugs and so it’s, you know how much it can mess you up. – When I went to the rehab,
I went there for 28 days, and I left, went back to
Florida, relapsed immediately, realized I need help again. So I got in my car and I
drove across the country, 38 hours straight, back to rehab. – What was the relapse on? Was it huffing or was it something else? – Huffing, yeah, absolutely. That’s my truth. The truth shall set you free. – [Dr. Travis] How are you doing now? – I’m doing amazing. I’m taking on a lot of the brunt of what’s going on with the family. But I’m strong enough,
I’m fierce, I’ve learned, and the regimen that I’m
on, so since I’m back on it, I got myself back on it about
two weeks ago, all right? And in two weeks, I’ve
managed to make myself, and managed over $100,000 of deals, because I wake up at 6:00 in the morning and go to bed at 9:00 at night. I cook my own steak on my grill outside. By myself in my house. I set up that house to have a family and I’m just waiting for the
love of my life to show up. So, that I can, I can be strong, I can say I’ve been through
hell and back, and I’m back, and I’m here to stay.

  1. This is his last vestige of control, try to sound wiser than he is in this state. I hope he’s able to get help with the mania.

  2. Last time I saw this guy he did the “how I beat shaq” song. Damnit man, his mentality is twackkked. He looks like an emotional gay man pent up with frustration and anger, faking a smile everyday. Geez

  3. From my personal perspective this dude gets on my nerves and I think he’s been full of shit for a while but I’m a recovering addict who practices complete abstinence and a program of recovery and this dude needs to be loved on until he can love himself

  4. I can't or shouldn't judge someone I don't truly know. But I can be honest about my feelings. I just get a bad vibe from listening to this guy talk. There's a kind of a menacing look in his eyes. Maybe he is a good/nice person. But if I saw him hitchhiking would I ignore the risks and give him a ride? Probably not.

  5. This is heartbreaking 🙁 poor guy. His family is fucked up! Hope he finds the love of his life and has kids. Something to keep him on the straight and narrow.

  6. Dude get off the gabbapenton it’s a shitty drug i wish i never touched it it has the worst withdrawals ever

  7. this guys a piece of shit he sat there calling adam22 gross for doing coke but mans out here talking about huffing gas LMAO

  8. Nah, he's on shit fursure. This is sad.
    Gabapentin ruins your receptors lol he is naive when it comes to medication and lost. Hes one of those addicts that needs tough love.

    God show him a way

  9. I feel so sorry for him, but literally he was JUST on no Jumper saying he was sober. My dude, rehab, STAT! How sad would it be to watch this downward spiral end in another senseless death? Whether he’s relevant or out here or whatever opinion you have of him, like bro…. REEEEEEHABBBBBBBBB!

  10. Dude huffing is worse than pretty much anything you could do. Are these doctors, because they don’t seem to know shit about what they are talking about.

  11. im all for peoples recovery, but hes still lieing to himself at every corner. i hope he gets out. good luck aaron…

  12. Until we experience and struggle with addiction ourselves, we won’t understand his struggle and pain. Who cares if you think he’s looking for attention. We aren’t living in his skin. He may have demons we don’t know about. Why do people diss him or write negative comments here rather than saying “we wish you luck in trying to get sober or don’t give up, you can do it “. Just be kind to one another. Everyone has their struggles.

  13. This showcases his brilliant sociopathic tendencies. A bit scary that people like this could be next door.

  14. Marijuana is not a substance…its a plant. And it's the thc… not marijuana. Hes a drug addict, hes lonely, lost etc. He has mental issues

  15. If smoking marijuana doesn’t treat addiction then why in Pennsylvania is opioid addiction dependency a symptom for medical marijuana, shut up you dumb doctors

  16. So he's the reason Walmart was checking ID for buying spray paint???! 🙄 On a serious note, this guy manipulates everyone BUT I do believe he's lonely and wants the attention from the fans he had when he was younger. Clearly he had issues because of his family, I can't even imagine. I hope he finds peace one day and soon because he is an attention whore right now!!!

  17. Immediately after this interview he goes on IG Live and starts threatening to call the cops on his fans because they are ending him death threats, while green lights flash all around him and Techno music plays in the background 🤔 … SOBER!

  18. Typical shortguy issues. It must suck never being as attractive or successful as your brother but this is not the way to cope

  19. Had to pause the video so I can read the comments without having to hear him obviously lying and sounding like the most narcissistic person alive.

    Constantly pausing hoping the audience will clap when he says he’s an addict..he doesn’t sound like someone who wants to get better he just wants attention. Very sad, I hope he gets the treatment he actually needs and can turn his life around

  20. Huffing is the WORSTE crap. Give this kid some dmt level him out hes never stepped back away from his ego

  21. dude is a textbook addict/junkie. you literally can't believe a word he says because everything is about getting the opportunity to get high again. that's literally all that matters to him atm. honestly, he may be too far gone.

  22. That’s part of the therapy, they don’t clap for him because those therapists/doctors know he’s being manipulative.
