Rock legend and American Idol judge Steven Tyler has revealed how he is following a carefully planned regime that has helped to keep him drug free for the past two years. Steven stated that he is 100% committed to sticking to the plan and remaining drug free for the rest of his life. He also revealed a few of his new ways of feeling that same high.
Tyler explained, "I have a programme. I got all my friends that are sober now. What it is, it's euphoric recall. You hear music and you can get so high and the curtain comes down. It's no different than doing a bump [of drugs]. It's the same thing and that's why it is so dangerous for me. I can't get back into that world."
He added, "I can stay high on stage and stay high, I mean out here with you right now my heart's pounding. Hearing the audience roar. This is what I live for today. But you never know if it's going to stick. I just keep with my programme, wish and hope. I don't want to go back to that place, if that's what you are talking about. That place lost me, my kids, a marriage, a band. A lot of things and it's for real. That's how dangerous that is. So I take it serious." Steven Tyler returned with the 11th season of American Idol earlier this week.
