Steven Tyler Talks Addiction With Dr. Oz

Steven Tyler sat down with Dr. Oz this week for a chat about his own challenges with addiction. During the interview the Aerosmith rocker says he paid a high price for his addictions but has finally gotten clean and sober.

"My sobriety cost me nothing less than everything," Tyler said. "I lost everything. It's serious when you lose your kids, your children, your wife, your band, your job and you'll never understand why because you're an addict. You can't figure that out."

He also adds that his most recent relapse was the first time several of his kids saw him on drugs:

"Two of them never saw me high until about seven years ago," Tyler admitted. "I had a bunch of operations and simply didn't follow my program, and I kept the drugs by the side of my bed, so I just did more instead of doing what was prescribed. Remember, I'm a very good drug addict because I've done it for so many years."
