Moby has revealed how he spent the majority of his adult life either drunk from liquor or high on drugs. The ‘Porcelain’ star took time out from his busy schedule to talk about his battle with drug and alcohol abuse, "I'm clean and sober now, but I've spent most of my adult life not being that" said Moby.
Moby wrote his latest track ‘The Day’, which he revealed details about last month, with his drug and alcohol addiction in mind. He also spoke of his fascination with the behaviour of an addict, "What fascinates me about addiction and obsessive behaviour is that people would choose an altered state of consciousness that's toxic and ostensibly destroys most aspects of your normal life, because for a brief moment you feel okay” Moby declared.
Moby also confessed to being intrigued by the behaviour of those surrounding an addict, "It's a response to the human condition that, when it works, is incredibly effective. I think it's really odd when people ostracise addicts, and someone says, 'That dirty alcoholic,' or 'That dirty drug addict,' when all they're trying to do is get through the next 48 hours and not feel terrible" Moby said. Moby is due to play a special performance at London’s The Roundhouse on June 2nd.
