Lil Mo is on a journey of healing. The “4 Ever” singer, 41, took to her Instagram page on Tuesday, November 3, to announce that she had officially kicked her opioids addiction. The R&B star also had some words of encouragement for others who may be battling addiction.
“BUT I DID!” Lil Mo started off the lengthy caption underneath a post that read “I never thought I could get off opioids!”
“The OPPS is real mad that I can speak about not having to wake up and pop a 30 PLUS, addi, tramadol and/or whatever else was brought into the house by the devil,” the “Superwoman Pt. II” singer continued. “It was just money. Not going to even cap. Spent soooo much money emoji paying other people bills just to be high and a functioning addict. Glad I let the toxic go!!! I prayed for this glow.”
Lil Mo explained that while she had made a lot of progress, there was still a lot more she wanted to accomplish.
“2020 is going to be a big year for my children and I. I got some more things to let go of So many more people to cut off. More old habits to quit,” she wrote. “But to those that came to hell to get me out, I appreciate you so much. We lit!”
The former Love and Hip Hop: New York star went on to tag a few people who presumably helped the songstress through her time of need. Lil Mo also revealed that not only did she struggle with substance abuse, but she was also a victim of physical abuse as well.
“Nobody knows what went on in the dark. But now I’m glowing. Clean b***h, inside out. I was in and out of court because I was being physically abused. The judge finally granted my full PFA, protection from abuse, which covers the whole world. No cap! I had to let them go,” Lil Mo continued. “I ran for my life!! 9 months ago. I haven’t looked back!! I’m at so much peace I don’t want it to be disturbed.”
The “Dem Boyz” singer concluded her post with a message to fans who may be in a similar position. “Save yourself then put the oxygen mask on everyone else. #glow #fnf,” the singer wrote. “Whatever you are dealing with don’t take into the new decade. We 28 days away. You can quit now! Don’t be embarrassed, be empowered.”
