Billie Joe Armstrong Admits To Using Prayer To Stay Sober

Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong is speaking out publicly about his onstage meltdown last year, and has said that he is using "prayer through meditation" in an effort to stay sober.

"I started combining prescription drugs and alcohol to a point where I didn't know what I was taking during the day and what I was taking at night. It was just this routine," he told Rolling Stone.

"I played onstage loaded a lot. I'd have anywhere from two to six beers and a couple of shots before I went onstage, then go and play the gig and drink for the rest of the evening on the bus."

Armstrong he says the moment in which he infamously smashed his guitar on stage was his breaking point.

"This was the last straw. I had no choices anymore. It makes me so sick. No. I can't go there. That's my last drink. Which is good - it's documented. Anytime I feel like drinking, I can think about it."
