Noah Cyrus has always been candid about her mental health and this is the first time she has detailed the role of addiction in her life. In the interview’s six-part discussion, “When I had just lost all hope and all faith and everything, like, what felt like the strength to carry on was when I broke down and asked help, for so long I’ve been denying and denying and denying and pushing back, where I finally just said, ‘I can’t lie to you anymore,'” Noah said. Noah suffered from a nervous breakdown and her healing journey began when she called her therapist, who helped her with her addiction and got the help she deserved. “A lot of things were clicking and I got the help that I needed and also that I deserved, and that every person with addiction or mental health deserves,” Noah told Zane.

She even credited her new manager, who she says is “a huge element in me and in my happiness.” For the first time in Noah’s life, she’s really trying hard to think about her well-being, “Who I am personally and not as an artist.” Noah had previously spoken to Rolling Stone in July about Xanax and she first used the drug when she was 18 when she was surrounded by people who had access to the drug, including her ex-boyfriend , who she admits was the first person who gave her Xanax and that’s how they bonded. “I think I wanted to fit in,” Noah told the outlet. Noah didn’t mention his name, but he was with rapper Lil Xan according to Daily Mail. However, Noah is just months away from celebrating his second birthday free from addiction. The Tennessee singer remarks, “Either this is the first time or the first time in, like, a very long time, that I’ve felt this feeling of peaceful happiness inside me.” Noah Cyrus’ debut album “The Hardest Part” is out today, September 16th.
