Michelle Heaton confessed for the first time her addiction to alcohol, as yesterday was "International Sober Day".

The Liberty X singer showed through photos and words that the condition has been serious and reached a point when she had a few days left to live.

The 42-year-old showed two photos, in one shot 20 weeks ago, in the other, current.

"This picture is not to be shocked, it was my reality! 20 weeks ago, I was devastated, the immune system was failing. In the second I am today, healthier and happier.

"On International Sober Day, we need to raise awareness of addiction," Michelle wrote in her status.

She adds that she hopes that her second photo will be encouraging for the younger generations to say no to alcohol and to teach them to enjoy life without his help.

Michelle says that she received professional help to cope and in August she completed 100 days without drinking alcohol.

"The hardest step is to admit you have a problem. Three months ago I was on the verge of death, I was only given a few days to live. I was very sick, I had lost so much weight. My skin was translucent, my belly "He was very bloated and very strong. And I wanted to drink more and more. He got out of control and was not letting me do anything anymore," says Michelle.
