British actor Danny Dyer vowed to turn his back on drugs when his habit almost wrecked his blossoming movie career.
The Business star caused a storm last week (ends17Oct10) when it emerged his new autobiography contains details of his wild past and a confession that he has "always taken drugs and... probably always will".
But the actor has now hit back by insisting he does not condone the use of illegal substances - and has warned fans how his own habit almost cost him his family and career.
Dyer tells British TV show Loose Women, "(The book) is not about drugs really. That was a part of my life and you have to speak about them. They destroy lives, I know that. And I nearly ruined my career, my family, everything. I don't take drugs now."
