Drugs are no fun, according to Elton John. The singer says he regrets using drugs and wasting time and a chunk of his life getting high. The singer was addicted to alcohol and cocaine and even suffered an overdose at one point, but he quit using in the '90s.
He said, "I wasted such a big part of my life. I was a drug addict and self-absorbed. You know, I was having people die right, left, and center around me, friends. And yet I didn't stop the life that I had, which is the terrible thing about addiction. It's that – you know, it's that bad of a disease."
