Singer Boy George has credited his career resurgence to his sobriety.
The 56-year-old has enjoyed a dramatic upturn in his fortunes in last few years -- signing a new record deal and securing a lucrative Las Vegas residency.
George claims quitting drugs has proven to be a major turning point in his life, reports dailymail.co.uk.
"All that's happening in my life is because I'm smiling, and I think that's the best way to explain it. I feel I've worked really hard in the last three years and I've got amazing people around me. I've got a great manager now who totally gets who I am and who I can be and I couldn't be happier in that respect," George said.
"For the last couple of years I've been excited about what I'm doing. I suppose I've come back home through my troubles to quite a positive place, and I'm just happy. From having a coffee in Starbucks to signing a record deal, it's all great," he added.
