Ryan Adam's Downplays The Severity Of His Previous Drug Addiction

02 October 2011

In a recent interview with the Britain Sun magazine singer/songwriter Ryan Adams has downplayed the severity of his past drug addiction, saying that when he was using he, "never lost his way."

The rocker regularly used cocaine and heroin up until 2007 when he quit narcotics cold turkey and never looked back.

In the past Adam's has insisted that it was "a miracle" he did not die from his extended drug use.

It would seem that the singer has now changed his tune, telling the magazine that, "I never lost my way with drugs. I wasn't hungry for them. The mistakes were very isolated in my life. When I was experimenting with drugs, I was never drooling in a chair in my house while no one was there. It was all part of the story of my life. And when they went, it was really without tears. It was, 'This was fun but it's best to stop before it's sad.' And I didn't die. The only times I felt close to death were real accidental times."

He went on to add, "I didn't do intravenous drugs or share with people so I was never going to catch a disease and I was very picky about what I took. But there were times when I was worn out or didn't know what I was getting so it was weird."
