Eminem and Lil Wayne cover GQ Magazine and Em was interviewed about his past drug use and his future in music:

"I'm very much a creature of habit, if I'm used to waking up in the morning and having one of these (picking up a Red Bull), I could do it every morning for the next ten years straight until I find something else to move on to. So if I'm used to taking a Vicodin when I wake up in the morning because I'm hungover from ­drinking or taking pills... The bigger the crowd, the bigger my habit got."

He also tells us what sobriety has taught him:

"The thing sobriety has taught me the most, is the way I'm wired—why my thought process is so different. I've realized that the way I am helps with the music. Sporadic thoughts will pop into my head and I'll have to go write something down, and the next thing you know I've written a whole song in an hour. But sometimes it sucks, and I wish I was wired like a regular person and could go have a fuckin' drink. But that's the biggest thing about addiction: When you realize that you cannot—for fuck's sake, you can not—fuck around with nothing ever again. I never understood when people would say it's a disease. Like, 'Stop it, dickhead. It's not a disease!' But I finally realized, Fuck, man—it really is."
