Post Malone is doing better now.

While in promotion of his album Twelve Carat Toothache the 26-year-old opened up about his past struggles with alcohol, calling himself “responsible now.”

“It was to a really rough point, and I couldn’t get up off the floor for weeks, ” he shared on SiriusXM’s Howard Stern Show on June 12. June 12, 2012.

Despite having “so much guidance” from pals like Justin Bieber, Malone said recalled feeling like he was “trapped in” his own world with the destructive attitude of “I have to do what I want to do and that’s what I’m going to do.”

Eventually, the musician realized he needed “to do a lot less talking and a lot more listening” and began working on being more open to advice from others, including his fiancée, who he credits with helping him navigate his rough period.
