Back in April 2018, Avicii committed suicide at 28-years-old using a broken glass bottle. Now, his final words before taking his own life have been revealed in a new book.
“Tim – The Official Biography of Avicii,” the title of the book, contains diary entries from the days leading up to his death while he was in the hospital and rehab, according to TMZ. “Those days in hospital were the most anxiety and stress-free days I can remember the past six years, those were my true vacations, as depressing as it might sound,” Avicii says, detailing his mental health struggle.
The Swedish DJ also opened up about his struggle with drugs and alcohol abuse. “I had a hard time accepting never drinking again though strongly suggested from all doctors to wait at least a year before even having a beer. Of course, I didn’t listen to the majority of the doctors, I listened to the couple who said it was OK if I was careful. I was ignorant and naive and touring the world, still on the never-ending tour…”
Avicii’s final message the day before his suicide read, “The shedding of the soul is the last attachment before it restarts!”
The book, written by Måns Mosesson, will be released on January 18th.
