Renowned actor and comedian, Eddie Murphy reveals that he had been offered drugs by many of his friends on a number of occasions in the past, but now he thanks God that he has always refused them and never consumed drugs in his life.

The 55-year-old actor said that his late friend and co-star John Belushi, who died in 1982, from drug overdose, and his another late friend Robin Williams, had asked him to consume drugs in some occasions but Murphy refused.

"I don't drink. I don't have like this moral thing about it, I just don't do it and I didn't get high." Said Murphy.

"(One night out) Belushi and Robin Williams offered me some cocaine and I didn't take it. Then, years later, I was like, Wow, that's a trip. (If I'd accepted it) The Eddie Murphy story would have been totally different," he added.

Murphy also remembered his old times when he actually could involve himself in wrong things; however, he heaved a sigh of relief that he held himself back and restrained from doing any wrong things at that phase of his life.

"There are a bunch of things like that that I look back on and be like, 'Wow.' And that just reaffirms my faith. I know that God is real. There's been a bunch of times when I could have wound up crashing and burning," he said.
