Kate Moss Admits 'Losing Plot' On Booze, Drugs!

I wish everyone could get help not prison!
LONDON - British supermodel Kate Moss has revealed she is a recovering alcoholic who at one stage had not walked down a catwalk sober for 10 years. Moss, 25, described a hedonistic jet-set life of champagne, vodka and marijuana in her decade as a top international model. 
But she told The Face magazine in an interview that ``things got out of control'' and that after five weeks in a London clinic specializing in drink and drug abuse she hopes to have put the past behind her. Moss, who came to fame as a waif-like 15-year-old, said that in the worst days of her addiction she started drinking at 10 in the morning and would carry a hip flask on photo shoots. ``I kind of lost the plot really there a little bit,'' she said. ``I don't want to go back to how I was.'' Moss said she had not walked down a catwalk sober in 10 years in a world where some top models regularly started their days with champagne. ``That's what you do. You just kind of have champagne. You always have champagne before shows. Always. Even at 10 in the morning. It got to the point one time when we said 'We're not going out without any champagne.' Terrible.'' Millioniare Moss, who now attends meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous, said she started drinking and smoking marijuana at the age of 12 in the homes of friends on her way to school in south London. After booking herself into a London clinic in November, she says she has now thrown out her hip flask and has never been happier. ``I'm sober. I'm single. I have great friends. I like my job. I'm not stupid,'' she said.
