'I'll never take drugs again'

British supermodel Naomi Campbell has spoken out about her five-year cocaine habit and vowed she will never touch drugs again.

The 36-year-old, who went into rehabilitation for her addiction in 2001, described how easily she became hooked on cocaine despite its terrible side-effects.

"I first took drugs when I was 24. I was at a concert in Europe and I was offered cocaine. It made me feel invincible - like I could conquer the world.

"I was just completely over-confident.

"But it's all just a misconception because when you wake up the next day it's all gone and you feel awful."

Campbell wants people to know that her addiction never interfered with her work and that she never carried cocaine.

She said: "I want to make it clear that I never took it while I worked, I never took it on a flight and I have never taken drugs across a border. I've not taken drugs for ages. I've put all that behind me."

Most of all, Campbell is determined the children she intends to have one day will not fall victim to the evils of illegal drugs.

"I want my kids to know how bad they are. I can't stop them from trying drugs, but I can tell them they are bad."

The supermodel has said that she was filled with "a deep sense of shame" for attacking her former assistants.

Campbell is undergoing anger-management therapy after being found guilty of abusing one former aide and owning-up to throwing a cellphone at another in a rage.

In a US TV show this week Campbell poured out her heart, confessing: "I have a deep sense of shame for the things I've done."

Of the infamous phone-throwing incident, she said: "I felt very remorseful for having thrown the phone at someone who didn't deserve it. [It was] tiredness, lack of sleep . so many things." - Wenn
