The 57 year old actor is remorseful about his behavior and says that he took to drugs due to the dynamic changes that were happening in his life.

"My greatest mistake was being addicted to cocaine. I started after I left college and came to Los Angeles in 1974. It was very casual at first. That's what people were doing when they were at parties ... Coming from where I came from - from Houston into Hollywood - and all of a sudden this success starts happening to you, I just didn't know how to handle that. Doing blow just contributed to me not being able to handle the fame", Quaid said.
