Comic: I still want heroin.

COMEDIAN and former drug addict Russell Brand has admitted that he is still tempted to take heroin.

The 37-year-old spoke out before his show, Give It Up For Comic Relief, at Wembley to raise awareness of drug and alcohol addiction.

He said that he was inspired to organise the event in memory of Amy Winehouse, who he believed could have been saved if she had received support.

Speaking about drug use, he said: "Recently I had an experience that was a little bit stressful, a week or two ago, and I thought: 'Ah God, it wouldn't half be nice to have some heroin and just relax', but then I realised it would come at a terrible social consequence."
