According to the US Magazine, in the interview, Ed Sheeran stated that adjusting to fame led him to struggle. Adapting to the industry was not an easy task for the 26-year-old singer. He was constantly working on his tour and never realized the things happening around him including the substance abuse.

Stepping away from the limelight

A little less than two years ago the British singer announced that he is going to take a one-year break from his career.

In December 2015, Sheeran stepped away from the limelight and took a year off to pull things back together. It was a much-needed break for him to learn and focus on the important stuff.

Many artists take a break at one point of their career to get a fresh start. In Sheeran's case, he never wanted to stay under the influence of substance abuse. The "Thinking Out Loud" star stated that he was not able to focus on writing songs and performing under the influence of any substance. That said, he figured out a way to work more on what he really needs.
