'I've Got A £12,000 Cocaine Habit - And My Family Don't Know'

Friday 2nd May 2014

An LBC listener revealed he has a 250-per-week cocaine habit that his family know nothing about.


John in Brentford told Julia Hartley-Brewer that he had taken the drug shortly before coming on air.

Yet, he said he has managed to keep his habit secret from his wife, his children and even his business partner.

He said: "I take a class-A drug on a regular basis - cocaine. I'm on cocaine as we speak. 

"What it does, it calms me. Because I've been doing it so long, it feels natural to me. It's a bit like smoking.

"Every week, I spend in the region of 250 per week - 1,000 per month.

"I'm married. She's got no idea at all, none whatsoever. My children are the same. The people I work with are the same."

Julia was asking listeners to call in with their tales of secret lives after it was revealed that Peaches Geldof had died with heroin in her body.
