"I went through 35 years of a strange dark fog. I never really quite understood what the point of anything was, you know, in life. It wasn't until Vanessa [Paradis] and then the birth of our daughter that I finally realized that there is something to live for. I didn't have the greatest childhood, but you know, so what, plenty of people have been through more difficult and devastating things and you just have to get through that. That whole thing of wanting to do drugs and wanting to numb yourself, you know, it's just postponing the inevitable."
