Robbie Williams is raising eyebrows in the recovery community by admitting he's not fully sober, but also claiming he's okay with it. The British singer has several trips to rehab for alcohol and drug abuse under his belt, but has been sober ever since meeting his wife Ayda Field in 2006. However, Williams said that despite having an infant daughter, Theodora, he smokes marijuana once in a while and even revealed to the Daily Mail that he had gotten high two days before the interview. 

"No big drug sessions...Just a small amount, purely to relax. I'm allowed to go crazy once in a while, just as long as I don't lose control," he said. "I have to be there to take care of my daughter, right? That is the good thing - by putting responsibility on my shoulders, she is also taking care of me." Despite his pot use, Williams has made it clear that he hasn't touched alcohol for 13 years.

It seems that the former Take That singer has a rather loose approach when it comes to addiction and his own sobriety. Williams shockingly told reporters last summer that he would do drugs again if Theodora decided she wanted to experiment with them. He also admitted regretting first getting sober at the age of 19, claiming that he wished he had a "few more years of partying" under his belt before getting sober at "29 or 30."

Williams also outraged addiction advocates last year by launching his own gambling website, Robbie Williams Poker. Although money was not at stake in the games, users did need to pay for certain tournaments in the form of a buy-in so they could compete for merchandise, concert tickets and a chance to meet him.
