Connect with anybody during depression

ROBBIE Williams has opened up about how medication helped him through a “troublesome and sad” time.

The Love My Life singer, who has battled addictions to drugs and alcohol in the past, said his demons have “been all right” since he was prescribed a new antidepressant, according to The Sun.

Robbie, 42, told Radio Times: “I had a really weird summer. Just couldn’t connect with anybody, apart from my wife”.

“I didn’t know how to talk to anybody, even people who are with me every day. I was isolated, in my head.”

He continued: “It was troublesome and sad. Then I tried this antidepressant and things have changed. The demons are quiet.”

The star, who married actor Ayda Field in 2010 and shares two kids with her, said he’ll never touch drugs or alcohol again.

He said: “I definitely can’t drink. I definitely can’t do coke. I can’t do ecstasy. And I don’t fancy heroin. Or M-Cat (mephedrone) or ketamine or any of those things.

“But maybe there’s a once-a-year special voucher that I get for good behaviour.

“But not for any of those things. I’ll leave it to your imagination.”
