The father-of-one, who is 14 years sober, confessed:

"I can't think about it too much because I start to miss it. If you're in pain, psychological pain, you feel like you have a knot in your tummy. If pain is a fist, heroin dives into it, opens it up and relaxes you. It feels so beautiful. It feels like a cuddle, like comfort, like being in your mother's arms. It's so sweet and perfect."

But the euphoric sensation doesn't last long. After getting hooked on the drug, Brand said his world was starting to unravel — he was already "smoking too much, drinking too much, doing cocaine, taking quite a lot of acid and looking at too much porn."

katy perry calls niall horan stage 5 clinger

Well this is one way to end a feud…

As we previously reported, things seemed tense between Katy Perry and Niall Horan after the Chained To The Rhythm singer accused the One Direction alum of "always" trying to flirt with her. Unsurprisingly, the Slow Hands artist clapped back with claims that Miz Perry was just trying to "patronize" him and defended that he just wanted to be her friend. Merp!

However, it appears as though Perry and Horan have buried their beef as they had a *somewhat* friendly run in at The Voice Australia over the weekend. The 32-year-old poked fun at their feud on her Instagram story (below) as she jokingly called Niall a "stage 5 clinger."

Oh, and she also accused the X Factor vet of "following" her — an accusation which was met by a HIGHlarious facial response by the Irish songwriter.
