Doja Cat is quitting smoking her vape after having an abscess that “hurt a lot” removed from her throat.
“dr. just had to cut into my left tonsil. i had an abscess in it. my whole throat is f–ked so i might have some bad news for yall coming soon,” the “Say So” singer tweeted Thursday.
Doja, 26, went on to explain that her tonsils were infected before the 2022 Billboard Music Awards last Sunday, so she was supposed to take antibiotics. However, she “forgot” and proceeded to drink wine and vape “all day long.”
“then i started getting a nasty ass growth on my tonsil so they had to do surgery on it today,” she wrote.
Doja then detailed the procedure, writing, “he poked up in dere [sic] 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 [sic] all the goop out in dere [sic]. i cried and it hurt a lot but im ok.”
When a fan tweeted at Doja to make sure she was not continuing to vape, the Grammy winner responded, “im quitting the vape for a while and hopefully i dont crave it anymore after that.”
Doja, who shared a close-up image of her infected throat on her Instagram Story, wrote that she was “too scared” to hit her vape because she felt nervous about the potential damage it could cause to her already infected throat.
“nah im too scared to hit it cuz my throat hurts so bad. i cried for hours. its not worth it,” she tweeted. “then its like imagine all that wierd [sic] poisonous s–t in the vape seeping into the completely open wound in my throat like f–k that. im hella young.”
That said, the “Ain’t S–t” rapper admitted she has not thrown away her vape and is practicing willpower instead.
“Throwing them away just instills panic. I’m addicted but I’m not weak,” she explained. “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.”
She continued, “also what makes yall think i cant go buy a 50 pack right now? Its not about throwing them away its about not needing them. Right now I NEED THEM. I don’t WANT them rn because im in pain. But my brain is addicted to it.”
While she has not had her tonsils removed just yet, Doja tweeted at a fan to share that she is going to “try and get em removed for sure very soon.”
Doja took home four awards at the BBMAs after receiving 14 nominations.
