Boy George insists he's never felt more "secure" in his sobriety after being clean for six years
Boy George feels "very secure" in his sobriety.
The singer has overcome serious addictions to heroin and cocaine in his life and has now been as been clean for six years.
George is adamant nothing would tempt him to go back to drugs or alcohol because he has worked too hard to turn his life around.
He told People magazine: "I feel very secure in my sobriety. I'd never sacrifice what I have now for a drink or a drug. Sobriety has allowed me to come back to my work with a gratitude and passion that I didn't know I had before."
The 52-year-old star is very happy that his new album, 'This Is What I Do' has put the focus back on his career rather than his private life.
The 'Karma Chameleon' hitmaker said: "In some ways it feels like I'm starting over, and that's exciting - like I'm getting the change to repaint the picture of myself. People think I've just been in a coma since 1984, except popping up on occasion to get into trouble!"
The singer is also looking forward to reuniting with Culture Club.
He said: "We're recording in May, and I'm very excited about what we've written. We're not the same as we were 30 years ago, but we were always pretty eclectic, so we can kind of be what we want now."
