David Bowie, his need to overcome addiction

David Bowie in Moscow, 1973

“By the mid-’80s, it was really apparent to me that I really needed to stop losing myself in my work and in my addictions. What happens is you just wake up one morning and feel absolutely dead. You can’t even drag your soul back into your body. You feel you have negated everything that is wonderful about life. When you have fallen that far, it feels like a miracle when you regain your love of life. That’s when you can begin really looking for a relationship . . . when you can (appreciate) the whole concept of giving to someone, not just taking.”

– David Bowie
