Preston Admits Sleeping Pill Problem
LATEST: British rocker Samuel Preston admits he has a problem with sleeping pill addiction, but insists he has cut his habit to one tablet a day. The ORDINARY BOYS frontman suffers from insomnia and has taken the potentially dangerous medication to help him sleep for three years. His dependency came to a head last month (SEP06) when he trashed a hotel room and woke up the next morning covered in cuts, with no recollection of what he had done. He says, "I'm a terrible self-prescriber. My hands shake the whole time, I'm quite twitchy. I'd go to the doctor pleading for pills. And there are other ways of getting them. "I'm now down to taking only one a day. I'd love to get to the stage where I don't think about them."
