Red Hot Chili Peppers' Flea: The temptation of drugs is a b*tch



The Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist took some time to reflect on the drug use he's been surrounded by/experienced:

-Three of his closest friends died by 26; he had some close calls but being a good father sent him on a quest for self-preservation, so he cut them out by age 30

-Still experiences temptation and anxiety and remarks how easy it would be to find a dealer/drugs

-Points to doctors today enabling patients with prescriptions

-Was given a two-month supply of Oxycontin when he broke his arm snowboarding; he was supposed to take 4 a day but stuck to 1. He was "high as hell," depressed, and felt he was losing his creativity, so he stopped taking them.

-Says we should feel gratitude for the rough times so we have the opportunity to rise above them
