Guitarist Slash given up drugs and alcohol

[ReviewAZON asin=”0061351431″ display=”inlinepost”]New York, Jan 10 (IANS) Former Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash is clean of drugs and has also given up alcohol. Despite his eventful past, Slash admits he has no regrets. “I dropped everything. And I feel good,” he said.

The 44-year-old guitarist has opened up about his heroin addiction and revealed he “never stopped” taking the drug because it “complemented” his personality.

The rocker has revealed he was drawn to the Class A drug when he was with Guns N’ Roses because it suited him “perfectly” and helped him escape reality, reports boston.com.

“Heroin was like the ultimate complement to my personality. It just fitted perfectly. Everyone else was doing coke and speed, and made hyper people even more hyper. Whereas heroin just made me more reclusive and quieter. It was just me and my drug. It was escapism for me,” he said.

The legendary musician admits his addiction eventually became out of control.

“However much I could get my hands on. If I finished a batch, I’d go hunting for it. It never stopped. I always injected. It’s the only way as far as I’m concerned, go straight to the source,” he said.
