UK Pop star Robbie Williams had a choice: keep using drugs and get fat or stop his drug use and be slim. Williams stopped using drugs.
However, recent comments by Williams have been scrutinized by anti-drug organizations.
Williams told a UK radio station, “I’d still be doing it if I could make good judgment calls, and I’d still be doing it if I didn’t blow up to the size of an aircraft hangar, you know, because it was a great time. Some of the best times in my life happened under the influence of drugs. … I’m not saying ‘go out and do drugs, kids,’ but I enjoyed them.”
The organizations are upset because Williams failed to mention the other negatives of drugs and alcohol.
“Drugs are not safe, and the risks can be much greater than simply putting on a bit of weight,? Martin Barnes, chief executive of DrugScope, told BBC News.
Williams said he became addicted to cocaine, ecstasy and alcohol after leaving famed boyband Take That in 1995.
Williams, 30, said he was ?kidnapped? by Elton John, who had him admitted to a rehabilitation clinic.
The interview will air on Real Radio on Christmas Day.
