In part 5 of the series titled​ The Dark Season ,B​ieber goes in depth of the amount of drugs he’s experienced with saying, he first started smoking weed at the age of 13, then moving to popping pills.

“It was just an escape for me, I was young, like everybody in the industry, or in the world, who experiment. But my experience was in front of the cameras and I had a different level of exposure. I had a lot of money and a lot of things, so then you have all of these people around me hanging on and wanting stuff from me, knowing I was living this lifestyle that they also wanted me to live.” Bieber said.

His manager Scooter Braun said his darkest times were in his late teens, but his lifestyle didn’t change until Beiber got scared and finally said enough is enough.

“I decided to stop because I was like dying, my security were coming into the room at night to check my pulse. People don’t know how serious it got, it was legit crazy-scary.”
