Guitarist BEN MOODY struggled with a cocaine habit capable of "killing a small country" and began drinking alcohol with breakfast.

The former Evanescence rocker only rehabilitate himself after a friend sent a pleading text message, begging him not to kill himself.

He says, "I was medicating myself constantly. I couldn't wake up and talk to anybody without having two or three screwdrivers (cocktails) in me did enough coke to kill a small country!

"A friend sent me a text message and it saved my life. She said 'I want you to know that I love you and you're worth having around'. The next day I got help. I saw death and ran."
