Matt’s Twitter note to fans from rehab

Essex County Standard: Matt’s Twitter note to fans from rehab Matt’s Twitter note to fans from rehab

SINGER Matt Cardle has thanked his fans for their support after going into rehab to tackle an apparent prescription drug addiction.

Cardle, 30, booked into London’s Priory Clinic on Sunday after claims he was hooked on temazepam and Valium.

The singer, from Little Maplestead, has posted a picture of a handwritten note on his Twitter page.

Essex County Standard:

It read: “I want to thank my fans for all your lovely messages of support. I’m getting myself better.

“I want to be ready to give it 110 per cent on tour next year. I love you all and will see you on the other side.”

Cardle, right, who won ITV reality show X Factor in 2010, is scheduled to start an 18-date tour of the UK and Ireland.

There are so many people losing their life through genuine illnesses, accidents and disease, that are not self inflicted, so to highlight an individual going into the Priory to sort out his drug addiction is a sad state of affairs.

Unfortunately some people, usually vulnerable teenagers look up to people who think taking drugs is acceptable. He is clearly not a role model.

I would imagine if he is hooked on prescription drugs that he would have been prescribed them by a Doctor. Many people experience this issue, taking drugs the Doctor prescribes in good faith only to find they are highly addictive. The drugs in question here are considered to be more addictive than Heroin.

Quite right, Say It, it's political correctness gone mad, is what it is. A sane person might point out that the problem is with prescription drugs, meaning a doctor decided they were the best thing for him, but it won't stop me joining you in being wildly judgemental. Anybody who's ever had a problem with drink, drugs (whether or not the doctor thought it a good idea), gambling, or depression, just needs to read a book and get a spine, and stop being a burden on my taxes. Simple. Just like Say It's post.

God Forbid you ever suffer any of these illnesses. Just because there are not physical symptoms does not mean that these illness are no more real than say cancer or heart disease. There have been plenty of studies to show that 'mental' illnesses are caused by chemical imbalances in the body, chemicals that the body produces itself.

I welcome the day that 'mental' illness does not carry the stigma it does today, it was not that long ago cancer carried the same stigma, so hopefully the wrong perception that those with 'mental' illness just need to 'read a book and get spine' will be banished to history very shortly and these people will get the care that they need and deserve.

Please, sometimes, I just wish people would read between the lines of what I'm actually saying. A sane person would say you're a hundred per cent right, but I say, it's bloody political correctness gone mad, is what it is.

I am no fan of this guy. I never liked him before or during his addiction and don't like him now he is better!!!!!

That said, it is horrible to think that some one is addicted to this. Addiction is a horrible thing. Be it smoking, drinking, coffee, medication, self harming or sex. Some hurt more than others, but all effect other people too.

I wish him well.

Say it as it is..... Grow up pal.
