“I like sober lite,” he responded. He was then asked if he drinks, to which he told GQ, “I do. Occasionally. I’m not a heavy drinker, as much as I used to be. The romance of drinking isn’t there.” He was asked if he smokes weed, to which he responded, “Yes.”

He was then asked if he uses other drugs, to which he responded, “No. Drugs were a crutch. It was me thinking that I needed it. And not doing the work to figure out how not to need it. And I’ve spent the last few years realizing that and thanking God that I don’t need it. Because for a lot of people, it’s hard to shake it. But I knew I didn’t want it.”

He then added, “And I eventually want a family. I know I say I don’t, but I know I do. I want children.”

The Weeknd recently sparked some romance rumors after being photographed with this A-list superstar.
