Washington: George Michael has revealed that he lost almost 15 lbs since he quit drugs.

The 48-year-old English musician, who has been undergoing narcotics counselling, stopped eating junk food all together, losing a considerable amount of weight as a result.

“I’ve been in counselling for substance abuse for nearly 10 months, and part of the advantage of that is I’ve dropped about 14 or 15lbs,” Contactmusic quoted her as saying.

“All my old clothes fit me.

“I wouldn’t say I’m looking in the mirror but it’s definitely one of the advantages of being cleaner,” he added.
