  Streamers Who Got Honest About Their Addictions

PewDiePie is no stranger to controversy or shady moments. He has gotten into feuds with other streamers and YouTube personalities, and his sense of humor has led to plenty of backlash. While many might consider PewDiePie the king of YouTube, he also might as well be the king of controversies, which raises the question of how he deals with the stress. Sadly, he once dealt with it by falling into addiction.

In October 2021, PewDiePie revealed that he loves whiskey and would gladly have a glass if someone offered it to him. However, he has sworn off drinking whiskey alone, and possibly all other alcoholic beverages, due to a past addiction.

PewDiePie admitted he used to drink whiskey “every single day,” and when he tried to cut down on his intake, he realized he was essentially addicted. He thinks this happened around 2017 or 2018, when he was dealing with numerous controversies. PewDiePie was, as he put it, “drinking to sort of escape emotions.” Moreover, PewDiePie was under a lot of stress, more than most fans realize, because he was also in the middle of a YouTube addiction. He was afraid he would lose his livelihood if he slowed down his content creation, and that fear fueled his whiskey usage. These anxieties built on each other.

Eventually, PewDiePie realized what was happening and wanted to put an end to the anxiety, so he kicked his whiskey addiction. It wasn’t easy, and he had to suffer through many sleepless nights, but he eventually came out the other end. PewDiePie briefly replaced his whiskey addiction with nicotine patches, he eventually quit that as well.
