Doja Cat gets candid about her addiction to nicotine.

Doja shared via social media that she had to her surgery on her tonsils. She explains, “dr. just had to cut into my left tonsil. i had an abscess in it. my whole throat is fucked so i might have some bad news for yall coming soon.”

She continued, “nah so my tonsils got infected before bbmas and i was taking f*ckin antibiotics but forgot that i was taking them and then i drank wine and was vaping all day long and then i started getting a nasty a*s growth on my tonsil so they had to do surgery on it today. he poked up in dere with a needle twice and then sucked all the juice out and then he took a sharp thing and cut it in two places and squoze all the goop out in dere. i cried and it hurt a lot but im ok.”

After fans shower her with well wishes, a few fans suggest that she “throws” away her vape. She replies, “throwing them away just instills panic. I’m addicted but I’m not weak. I was literally staring at my vape today that normally i’d hit a thousand times a day and hit it two times instead. I’ma try to go cold turkey for now but hopefully my brain doesn’t need it at all by then.”

“so foh with that “THROW IT AWAY THEN QUEEN” sh*t. that doesn’t help anybody and it just sounds condescending to anybody whos actually struggling w nicotine addiction. ive tried all that throw it away sh*t before. doesn’t work.”

We are wishing Doja a speedy recovery.
