The Shape of You singer Ed Sheeran opens up about his battle with anxiety and addiction earlier this month.

Ed Sheeran revealed, “I have a very addictive personality. Very, very addictive personality,”

He added, “I’m reading Elton John’s book at the moment and there are so many things that he did that I do.”

The singer continued saying, “He would be like, ‘I would just go on an ice cream binge and eat four f*****g desserts until I throw it up’, and I was like, ‘I’ve done that before’. Or his martini binges, where he sees how many he can drink. And I’m like, ‘I’ve done that before too’. He ends up getting really f*****g sad and depressed and all of these things can add to that.”

The singer added that he has learned to manage and cope up with his addictive personality with moderation in everything.

“I think things like sugar, sweet stuff, junk food, cocaine, alcohol, it feels good the more you do, but it’s the worst thing for you, I think,” he said.

“I think with addiction, it’s just very hard to moderate, but moderation is the key”, Ed Sheeran added.

“I’m covered in tattoos and I kind of don’t do things by halves so if I’m gonna drink, I see no point in having a glass of wine. I’d rather have two bottles.”

The singer shared, “Having a glass of wine is having something in moderation and probably isn’t going to affect your day the next day. But two bottles of wine probably might make you quite sad.”
