ĎIt doesnít make a difference to me. The money, the fame, the power, the sex, the women ó none of it. Iíd rather be a drug addict.í
However, he added that the drug will Ďtake everything. First itíll take your money. Then itíll take your friends, your family, your car, your house. Then itís going to take bits of your body. In the end I used to be scoring with people that had eyes missing, limbs missing. Youíll take it until it takes your life.í
