Drew Barrymore: I'm Not Sober

Drew Barrymore spent a majority of her teens battling drug and alcohol addiction. And while she's far from being rehab material, she says still a drinker--but does it in moderation.

Drew claims to have found "balance" in her life so she doesn't feel the need to cut booze out of her life entirely.

In a new Parade magazine interview, Drew says, "I'm not (sober) and I don't claim to be - quite the opposite. I've tried to find the balance. I hope it's balanced."

Drew, who grew up in the spotlight, had her first alcoholic drink at the age of nine, began smoking marijuana at 10 and tried cocaine for the first time at 12. She entered rehab for the first time at 13.

Luckily she got her life back on track when she was in her 20's and has become one of the most successful actresses in the biz.

She may not be sober, but clearly, she's learned that life is all about moderation.
