Smith embarked on some self-destructive behaviour arising from his heartbreak, which he portrays in this song.
"After the Oscars [in 2016], I started going out too much, not respecting myself, drinking loads and smoking," he told Billboard
. "I'm normally quite healthy, but back then I wasn't, either physically or mentally. I wasn't looking after myself; I was going into a bit of a spiral. I'd lost contact with friends, with family. It wasn't good."
