Johnny Manziel’s drinking and drug use is worse than ever and he seems to be on a never-ending party tour, refusing to seek help.  Now the people close to him are convinced he’s going to die unless something changes soon.

Manziel has become even more reckless with his drug problem recently, even reportedly blowing lines in front of people he barely knows.

“He’s in a horrible downward spiral,” one source very close to the QB tells TMZ Sports.

There have been multiple serious attempts to help Johnny, with one group of close friends recently sitting him down and “confronting” him about his situation. But, as one source put it, “He flipped out and would not hear it.”

His friends are desperately trying to get through to him but haven’t been successful and they’re hoping this story will serve as a wake-up call.

Apparently he’s gotten so bad, he’s become persona non grata at several of the top spots after his violent outburst this past weekend at JEWEL nightclub at the Aria.

“He’s too much of a risk,” one high-powered nightclub source says.  “He’s a good guy, but he’s a f***ing mess.”

You have to be pretty out of control to be banned from Vegas clubs, the party capital of the country.

According to TMZ, Manziel is still living under the delusion that he’ll make it back to the NFL and recently talked about his comeback, but it seems to me that he likes being free.  In the NFL he would undergo drug testing, his heavy party would be highly scrutinized and he would have to focus on training. All things that he knows already.

Instead, he continues to party like a maniac — L.A., Vegas, Miami, Coachella, Dallas — and, as one source put it, “If he continues this way for much longer he will die.”

His own father expressed grave concern about Johnny back in February, saying if he doesn’t get help, “he won’t live to see his 24th birthday.”
