In the chorus of the song Demi sings, "Momma, I'm so sorry, I'm not sober anymore / And daddy, please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor / To the ones who never left me / We've been down this road before / I'm so sorry, I'm not sober anymore."

Sober has a different meaning for everyone. Admitting that you need help, IS OKAY. Relapse is a part of recovery. It’s okay to not be okay. #Sober @ddlovato

I'm so proud of Demi for being so honest with us. Trust me admitting you need help is not easy at all, I can't even admit to my family and Demi just admitted it to the whole world. I love you @ddlovato. We will never leave your side, you will NEVER lose us. #WeLoveYouDemi #Sober
