MUSIC: Avicii’s last words before his suicide.

Swedish DJ Avici­i’s final words have been revealed in Måns Moses­son’s upcom­ing book, Tim — The Offi­cial Biog­ra­phy Of Avicii.

Avicii — real name Tim Bergling — shocked the world when he was found dead in a lux­u­ry hotel in Mus­cat, Oman, on April 20, 2018 after com­mit­ting sui­cide at just 28 years old.

The DJ’s sui­cide came after he began bat­tling drug and alco­hol addic­tion after a wave of fame thanks to the pop­u­lar­i­ty of his music, includ­ing songs such as “Wake Me Up” and “Lev­els” .

Moses­son’s book, due out in Jan­u­ary 2022, will describe how Bergling dealt with fame and drug addiction.

The author spoke with Bergling’s par­ents, Anki and Klas Bergling, fam­i­ly, friends and col­leagues to piece togeth­er her life sto­ry and obtained diary notes on the time the star spent in reha­bil­i­ta­tion and in the hos­pi­tal when he was bat­tling his addictions.

Bergling wrote in his diary: “I had a hard time com­ing to terms with nev­er drink­ing again, although all the doc­tors strong­ly sug­gest­ed wait­ing at least a year before even hav­ing a beer.

“Of course I did­n’t lis­ten to the major­i­ty of the doc­tors, I lis­tened to the cou­ple who said it was OK if I was careful.

“I was igno­rant and naive and cir­cled the world, always on the nev­er-end­ing tour — because once you cir­cled it once, guess what?”

Anoth­er entry then read: “You are start­ing over from the begin­ning. Those days in the hos­pi­tal were the most anx­ious and stress free days I can remem­ber in the past six years, this is my real vaca­tion, as depress­ing as it may be. to appear.

“The relief of going from extreme pain to no pain, know­ing that no one else expects you, wait for it and then recov­er was tremendous.

“It was an extreme relief con­sid­er­ing the insane sched­ule I had fol­lowed so far.”

The last post in her diary, writ­ten just a day before her death, read: “The out­pour­ing of the soul is the last attach­ment, before it begins again!”

Since Bergling’s sui­cide, his par­ents have start­ed the Tim Bergling Foun­da­tion, a project that advo­cates for recog­ni­tion of sui­cide as a glob­al health emer­gency and active­ly works to elim­i­nate the stig­ma asso­ci­at­ed with sui­cide and men­tal health issues.

The foun­da­tion sup­ports sci­en­tif­ic orga­ni­za­tions engaged in research and pre­ven­tive actions against men­tal ill­ness and sui­cide, espe­cial­ly among young people.

It also sup­ports aid work in areas where the DJ had a pas­sion, includ­ing cli­mate change, glob­al hunger and the preser­va­tion of endan­gered wildlife and species.
