Nick Carter insists he’s over his drinks and drug demons.

The Backstreet Boys star has struggled with substances abuse and alcoholism for ten years.

But Nick, 29, has sorted himself after being diagnosed with heart condition cardiomyopathy.

‘I don’t want to die,’ he tells People. ‘I don’t want to be that person people read about and think, “That’s sad that he couldn’t stop it and killed himself.”’

Nick has now adopted a healthy lifestyle and has lost 57lbs.
