Elton John used to have a pretty serious cocaine problem, but thankfully he's been clean and sober for 20 years.
His secret to staying off the nose candy?
If he's at a party and he knows drugs are there… he just leaves.
"If I ever find myself in a situation where there are drugs, I can smell the cocaine. I can feel it in the back of my throat, that horrible feeling of taking the first hit of cocaine. And I leave."
So to remove temptation, he simply removes himself from the party.
Sounds like a great way to avoid face-boarding down the fresh powder of Mount Blow.
Another big help is his son Zachary he has with his partner David Furnish.
"Zachary has brought to David and me the most incredible pleasure, and he's brought us the most incredible sense of responsibility and love."
So fab that he's clean and a great daddy!
Way to go, Elton!
