In Amy Poehler's upcoming memoir, perhaps too appropriately titled Yes Please, the comedienne opensup about experimenting with drugs in her 20s while working as an improv comedian, according toexcerpts obtained by the British newspaper The Mirror.
"I tried cocaine, which I instantly loved but eventually hated," Poehler, now 43, writes. "Cocaine is terrific if you want to hang out with people you don't know very well and play ping pong all night. It's bad for almost everything else... the day after cocaine is rough."
In a chapter from her book titled "Obligatory Drug Stories," the Parks and Recreation star also discusses a New Year's Eve she spent high on ecstasy with her Upright Citizens Brigade pals. She says, "we all danced and drank water and loved each other." But again, the drug lost its fun. "I also remember the next day when I thought I had no friends and I was so sad I wanted to sink into the carpet and permanently live there."
Now, most drugs are off limits, but she hasn't banned marijuana entirely.
"I can't perform, drive or write stoned, and therefore I smoke pot a lot less than I used to."
Yes Please comes out Oct. 28.
