London: Rocker Pete Doherty has decided to stop injecting drugs out of respect for his mystery girlfriend. He does not want her to dabble in drugs.
"I`ve stopped injecting. The only way I see myself in a serious relationship is if I am toning it down a bit. When you`re banging up all day you can`t really have someone in your life, especially if she`s an English rose. I wouldn`t let her touch anything. I just wouldn`t," contactmusic.com quoted Doherty as saying.
Doherty, who has earlier dated supermodel Kate Moss, also says he is calmer ever since he quit London to move to Paris three years ago.
"The media circus got a bit twisted when I was in London. It became a bit of a joke, really. In Paris, they`re so serious I can take myself really seriously, too. I can get really morbid without people telling me to cheer up," he added.
