Avicii’s final words before taking his own life have been revealed in a new book.
Swedish DJ Avicii, whose real name was Tim Bergling, sadly died in 2018 after taking his own life.
In a new book titled, Tim – The Official Biography Of Avicii, Måns Mosesson’s explores how Bergling dealt with fame and substance abuse.
The author spoke to Bergling’s parents as well as his friends and family to piece together his life story.
Mosesson also obtained diary entries from the star’s time in rehabilitation and hospital.
In his diary, Bergling wrote about how he struggled to stop drinking even though doctors had advised him to do so.
“I had a hard time accepting never drinking again though strongly suggested from all doctors to wait at least a year before even having a beer,” he wrote.
“Of course, I didn’t listen to the majority of the doctors, I listened to the couple who said it was OK if I was careful. I was ignorant and naïve and touring the world, still on the never-ending tour — because once you’ve circled it once, guess what?,” he added.
The final message in Bergling’s diary, which was written just one day before his death, said: “The shedding of the soul is the last attachment, before it restarts!”
