Pop singer and sister to Miley Cyrus, Noah Cyrus has grown up in a family of celebrities her entire life. Noah, growing up under the watch of the world, opens up about her struggles and addiction following.
Noah first tried Xanax when she was 18 years old, stating that she was trying to “fit in” and bond with her boyfriend at the time. She described her addiction as “cosigned” by her friends, leading to what she called “this dark pit, bottomless pit.” Noah says her addiction was at its worst during the coronavirus pandemic in 2020. During a interview, Noah began passing out mid-conversation, stating that she couldn’t keep her eyes open or even stay awake. During this same year, Noah recalls her grandmother’s funeral, and how she wishes she could’ve been there for her family when they really needed it. “I felt so guilty for not being there when my grandma died,” Noah recalled. “I was there physically, but emotionally, I was not there. I couldn’t be.”
Noah’s situation involving the loss of her grandmother was considered an eye-opener for her. She started treatment in 2020, and since then, has been slowly getting back on her feet for the first time since she was 18 years old. Noah recently shed light on her struggles to give her fans a sense of hope, if they might be heading down the same path she decided, and regretted, taking. Noah speaks about her improvement recently, “I wake up in the mornings, and I’m able to look in a mirror and go on about my day without hating myself,” she said. “I’m able to comfort myself and nurture myself.”
