Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker is now opening up about quitting drugs after having a health scare this past year.
The drummer says he made the decision to stop smoking marijuana when he found out that he had six stomach ulcers in May.
"I used to love smoking weed. I would smoke weed at night if I had anxiety," Barker told Red Bulletin. "I always thought I'd be able to do that for the rest of my life, but when your health is on the line, you don't mess around. I love being a dad and I love playing music. I'm not trying to give up any of that."
After Travis received the news of his poor health the band was forced to cancel a series of shows. Barker was diagnosed with Barrett's esophagus, a disorder in which the lining of the esophagus is damaged by stomach acid.
