Drake knows firsthand that at times it’s hard being famous.

The Young Money rapper admitted that through all the stress and pressure fame can cause, he sometimes uses drugs.

“Have I sipped codeine before?” he asked in an interview with The Guardian. “Yeah, of course. Have I smoked weed? Yes. Do I drink wine? Yes.”

But before rumors of a hardcore drug addiction could begin, Drizzy continued “But do I do it excessively? No. I’m not a reckless guy. I do it all within moderation. I’m not into drugs–I mean any outside the ones I just mentioned.”

He even reiterated, “Nah, that’s not me. I care too much about what I have. I’m not going to throw it away for that.”

Way to say no to drugs Drizzy! Well, kind of. — Jazmine Gray
