Rukus Magazine asked former Guns N' Roses drummer Steven Adler "What was the turning point for you to finally get sober and join Celebrity Rehab?" He responded with this revelation: "I didn't die. I tried killing myself, and you know, you'd think it's easy to do, but let me tell you: it's not easy. I could tell you there are two separate times I tried killing myself and both times I took 100 Valium, drank the big bottle of Jägermeister and shot up ¾ of a gram of heroin. The only thing that happened to me is that I had the best night sleep of my life. So, I just got tired of being sick and tired and feeling down. Unfortunately, you don't realize this until you're getting sober but the reason why you're depressed all the time is it's the drugs that are depressing you. Cocaine and heroin are depressants; Valium is a depressant; alcohol and cigarettes are a depressant." Read the full interview here
