Rapper Eminem says his substance abuse problems were so bad that he had lost whole years of his memory.
The 38-year-old 'Not Afraid' hitmaker says addiction has wiped out five years of his life and he is now paranoid about writer's block, a media report said.
"I try to stay recording, because if I don't, I get rusty. I'm very paranoid about writer's block -- I had it for four years, and it drove me crazy. No matter how hard I tried, I just couldn't think," the rapper said.
"The pills had a lot to do with it. Just wiping out brain cells. I don't know if it sounds like I'm making excuses, but the absolute truth is a lot of my memory is gone. I don't know if you've ever taken Ambien, but it's kind of a memory-eraser. That wiped out five years of my life," he added.
Eminem's drug problems began in 2002 when he made the semi-autobiographical movie '8 Mile' and got worse on subsequent tours.
