Since making it big and selling out arenas and stadiums all over, Jelly Roll has been open about his struggles with substance abuse. Recently, he revealed the surprising secret that has helped him stay sober. So, what did the singer have to say?

Jelly Roll Has Been Open About His Struggles

One of the things that makes Jelly Roll so raw and real to his fans is that he isn’t afraid to talk about real issues. In his personal life, he has faced numerous struggles. Rather than insulate himself in the bubble of celebrity status he has achieved, he is still the same guy he always was, just with a lot more recognition these days.

Jelly is candid about his weight issues, his substance abuse issues, and more. Even though he is packing arenas these days, he is just as at home rubbing elbows with other celebs at the ACM Awards as he is embracing a fan at Walmart, and it’s this authenticity about him that resonates with so many.

Save Me Singer Shares Surprising Secret For Staying Sober

Jelly Roll has struggled with addictions for years. Recently, he dished on the surprising thing that has allowed him to stay sober. According to Jelly, smoking weed has helped him tremendously, especially when it comes to things like the state of his mental health.

Speaking on the matter, the singer said: “I get in trouble for this, all the time, but my stance on marijuana will always be the same: I believe marijuana has helped me in so many regards, with my anxiety.” Jelly Roll went on to add: “This is a hot button topic, but, truly, marijuana has kept me sober.”

Jelly Roll Has Come A Long Way

Following that train of thought while recently speaking with Taste of Country, the singer went on to say that without the help of marijuana, he would more than likely be doing even more harmful substances to cope. The way Jelly Roll tells it, without weed, he would be taking codeine and snorting cocaine. In his words: “But a world with weed, I’ll be alright.”

Jelly Roll is also open about the fact that smoking marijuana to stay off the harder stuff could, in a sense, be seen as cheating. Often, for people in various recovery programs, they have to quit everything cold turkey to keep themselves on the straight and narrow.

As for Jelly, it seems smoking marijuana is a safer way for him to scratch that itch without having to white-knuckle through his days jonesing for something harder.

He went on to say: “I have friends that are in the program that are totally against any kind of mind-altering anything. I have so much respect for those people. That’s just not how my sobriety worked out.”

Whatever Jelly Roll is doing now seems to be working for him, including staying committed to slimming down and dropping the pounds. In the grand scheme of things, he found what works for him at the end of the day, and his fans love to see it.
