A constant theme in the Weeknd's music is Abel's love affair with illicit substances.

Weeknd updated his relationship with drugs in a new interview with CR Men.

"I have an off-and-on relationship with it," The Weeknd said when asked if he still does drugs, in an interview published in CR MEN's issue 10. "It doesn't consume my life but occasionally helps me open up my mind, especially when I'm creating, but when I perform I'm completely sober and try not to even drink," he continued. "I've learned to balance thanks to touring."

In the past, Weeknd has attributed much of his creative process to drugs, but it sounds like the 30 year old is finding more balance in his life and his art.
