“I did it to see how best it can help me to be creative and the ideas that I got were all very wild and, to me wow ‘this thing is amazing, it can give you ideas and things’,” he said. “But then once it starts dying down then you realise these are not wild ideas, these were stupid things. But at that time you don’t care. For me it doesn’t work.”

He went ahead to extensively talk about the dangers of over relying on the use of hard drugs for any creative activity.

“However, trust me, if you rely on the natural and you give yourself enough time, you’ll be amazed at what you can accomplish. The deception is that that one gives you an immediate thing that you can do and you think this is the way out. But the more you do it, the more you destroy that capacity.

“So you can be the greatest creative and everything but later on you realise that it brings you down again, very fast. So my advice is, don’t depend on any external high to get creative because it will give you just the boost but you can’t depend on that boost. I believe in what they call the natural high. Creative who stay natural and depend on the natural high are always more successful and they have longevity than those who depend on the quick high thing,” He noted.
