You should know it’s not easy for me to post all of this articles about Dougie’s suicide attempt and as there’s like million of articles about it and all end saying the same I’ll post all of them here.

McFly rocker Dougie Poynter has opened up about his suicide bid last year.

Dougie’s problems spiralled out of control following his break-up with Frankie Sandford, and now he admits he tried to end it all by killing himself.

The bassist sat in a fume-filled car for 20 minutes in February 2011, just days before he checked into rehab, according to The Mirror.

His shock confession comes in the band’s new autobiography, Unsaid Things… Our Story, and Dougie talked about his depression in an interview on talk show Alan Carr: Chatty Man.

Alan told Dougie he was shocked by what he read, insisting: “Listen, I have got to say, it got really dark, about you trying to kill yourself…”

Dougie replied: “Yeah,” and elaborated: “It’s always good to reflect on that sort of stuff. I’m in a really, really good place now. It is quite easy to forget. It’s quite therapeutic to go back, quite scary and a bit of an eye opener into how dark it can get if you take your foot off the gas and stop looking after yourself.”

Bandmate Harry Judd told Dougie, “Half the time you didn’t know what you were doing – it was us telling you,” to which he answered, “Yes, because I was so battered.”

Tom Fletcher then said, “We are all in good places now. Dougie has sorted himself out and I am married.”

Dougie spent more than a month in The Priory rehab clinic receiving treatment for depression and substance abuse, and has since made a full recovery.

The band’s full interview will air on Friday.

McFly’s Dougie Poynter reveals his battle with drink, drugs and suicidal thoughts

McFly bassist Dougie Poynter revealed he attempted suicide as he struggled to overcome his battle with drink and drugs.
The I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! winner, 24, admitted he attempted to end his life in February 2011 – just before he entered rehab.

The singer had spent months battling drink and drugs and had split from Saturdays girlfriend Frankie Sandford a few months before his suicide attempt.

Fortunately, Dougie decided to seek help and spent a month in The Priory, and has been clean and sober ever since.
Speaking about the harrowing time during a record for Alan Carr’s Chatty Man show, Dougie’s revelations drew gasps from the audience, reports the Daily Mirror.

Dougie and his bandmates were on the Channel 4 show to promote their autobiography Unsaid Things… Our Story.

Having read a preview copy of the book, Alan said he was sad to read about Dougie’s past demons.

Alan said: ‘Listen, I have got to say, it got really dark, about you trying to kill yourself?’

After Dougie replied ‘yeah’, he went on to say: ‘It’s always good to reflect on that sort of stuff. I’m in a really, really good place now. It is quite easy to forget.

‘It’s quite therapeutic to go back, quite scary and a bit of an eye opener into how dark it can get if you take your foot off the gas and stop looking after yourself.’
Bandmate Harry Judd, who won Strictly Come Dancing last year, added: ‘Half the time you didn’t know what you were doing – it was us telling you.’

Frontman Tom Fletcher, who appeared in Wednesday’s episode of The Only Way Is Essex, said: ‘We are all in good places now. Dougie has sorted himself out and I am married.’

McFly rocker Dougie Poynter attempted suicide days before checking into rehab last year (11).

The bassist tried to kill himself by sitting in a fume-filled car in February, 2011 after sinking into a low following the breakdown of his relationship with The Saturdays singer Frankie Sandford.

According to Britain’s Daily Mirror, Poynter opened up about his suicide bid in an interview on U.K. talk show Alan Carr: Chatty Man, as he and his bandmates promoted their new autobiography, Unsaid Things… Our Story.

Host Carr told Poynter he was shocked by the revelation, insisting, “Listen, I have got to say, it got really dark, about you trying to kill yourself…”

The musician replied, “Yeah,” before adding, “It’s always good to reflect on that sort of stuff. I’m in a really, really good place now. It is quite easy to forget. It’s quite therapeutic to go back, quite scary and a bit of an eye opener into how dark it can get if you take your foot off the gas and stop looking after yourself.”

Bandmate Harry Judd told him, “Half the time you didn’t know what you were doing – it was us telling you,” to which Poynter replied, “Yes, because I was so battered (drunk).”

Frontman Tom Fletcher said, “We are all in good places now. Dougie has sorted himself out and I am married.”
The band’s full interview will air in the U.K. on Friday (12Oct12).

McFly star Dougie Poynter attempted suicide

Dougie Poynter attempted suicide last February after becoming addicted to drink and drugs.

The McFly bass guitarist revealed he tried to kill himself in a fume-filled car – as he struggled to cope with depression and his addictions – in an emotional pre-recorded interview to promote his band’s new autobiography ‘Unsaid Things… Our Story’ on the popular Channel 4 series ‘Alan Carr: Chatty Man’.

Referring to band’s tell-all – which hits shelves today (11.10.12), Alan asked: ”Listen, I have got to say, it got really dark, about you trying to kill yourself?”

The 24-year-old ‘I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here’ winner replied: ”Yeah” and admitted he feels much better since going to rehab and writing about his secret struggles.

He said: ”It’s always good to reflect on that sort of stuff. I’m in a really, really good place now. It is quite easy to forget.
”It’s quite therapeutic to go back, quite scary and a bit of an eye opener into how dark it can get if you take your foot off the gas and stop looking after yourself.”

A close friend of the singer also told the Daily Mirror: ”We were all devastated.

”His drinking was out of control and he thought ending it all was the easy and perhaps only option available to him.”

The rocker spent more than a month in the Priory rehabilitation centre and successfully completed his treatment before going on to win the 11th series of the ITV reality TV show.

Dougie’s confession had the full support of his bandmates, who were also interviewed for tomorrow night’s (12.10.12) episode of ‘Alan Carr: Chatty Man’.

Tom Fletcher said: ”We are all in good places now. Dougie has sorted himself out and I am married.”
