JAMIROQUAI singer Jay Kay has no regrets about his hard-won battle with drugs, because he is convinced the life lessons his chemical indulgence taught him will be useful when he has children.

The LOVE FOOLOSOPHY hitmaker has been drug-free since New Year's day 2004, but insists his knowledge of illegal substances will help him guide his future offspring.

He says, "I had a drug problem, but I don't really regret that.

"Now I'm armed to the teeth with experience, so if it happens to anyone I know or any kids I have, I'll be equipped to deal with it."
