Ivan Moody: "I was lying to myself constantly"
Ivan Moody says that he "learned a lot" about himself while he spent time in a treatment facility addressing his substance abuse issues.
Asked about what he learned during his time in rehab, Moody told this month's edition of Metal Hammer magazine: "I learned a lot about myself. Things that I had forgotten. I learned what it was like to not battle myself anymore, which is really difficult to admit, because at the end of the day — and I'm sure anyone can agree with this — you're your own worst enemy.
"I just got to a point where I was lying to myself constantly, so I had to face up to that," he continued. "It was a lot of… I don't want to use the words 'self sacrifice,' but that's what it felt like. It was giving up who I thought I was and starting over from scratch and realizing the man that I am was good enough."
