Noel Gallagher has been candid about his use of cocaine but insisted he drew the line at the "dirty" drug because he didn't want to look "like a zombie".
Speaking in new book, 'Don't Look Back In Anger', he said: ""I'm too vain to be a heroin addict. Any drugs where you're going to get dirty fingernails isn't for me.
"I don't like scruffy s**t, f***ing dirty flats. You'd see Shaun Ryder walking round Manchester like a zombie.
"It's not very glamorous.
"The accepted face of a heroin user was some scabby, spotty f***ing Scouse c***. I'm not going to be that guy."
The 52-year-old rocker recently admitted his heavy cocaine use once left him hospitalised after suffering psychosis and "brutal" panic attacks.
She said: "It was from 1995 til 1998. That was my crazy years.
"I did have to check into hospital once. I was in Detroit as a matter of fact and imagine having the psychosis and having to have to go to hospital.
"They don't understand a word you are saying because of your accent and you are like 'I think I am on my way out'.
"I had a few brutal panic attacks, which I why I quit."
But the 'Holy Mountain' singer no longer enjoys cocaine and now finds it boring when other people start taking it at parties.
He said: "It doesn't bother me. I can sit in a room full of people doing f***king mountains of cocaine - it doesn't bother me in the slightest.
"I could sit with people smoking and all that. You just know that when the coke comes out the night is going to take a s**t turn. It's always like fun and games and once someone gets the coke out then all of a sudden it's 'Well, it's time for me to go anyway, because this is now boring'."
