Travis Barker (BLINK-182) quitting drugs

In a recent interview, Travis Barker from BLINK-182 talked about his addiction to marijuana and a medical condition called Barrett’s oesophagus.

He stated:

They found that I had six ulcers, and I had a condition called Barrett’s esophagus, which is basically from really extreme acid reflux or if you excessively smoked, your esophagus lining becomes pre-cancerous. Right then and there, I changed my whole life around. I had to stop eating and drinking certain things. And I had this lump in my throat around the same time. My tonsils were three to four times the size they should have been.
