"The first time I took heroin, I took heroin every day until I stopped 11 years later," The Daily Express quoted him, as saying.

He added: "They said, 'If you don't stop taking drugs now you'll be dead, in a mental asylum, or in prison within six months'."

But, Brand has confessed that despite quitting drugs in 2003, he can still be a wild man.

"I still have little explosions of self-destruction," he said.

Brand hosted this year's MTV Video Music Awards.
