Say I try, but I know that's a lie
Cause I don't and why I just don't know

from Eminem – Deja Vu Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Eminem keeps reassuring himself that he is doing his best to kick the habit. But deep down he knows he would much rather be on drugs, and really isn’t trying to stop it. What confuses him is why he won’t try to stop, since he also knows it’s hurting him.
