Depeche Mode vocalist Dave Gahan is a former alcoholic and now chooses not to drink any booze at all. He told Mojo magazine: "I was out Christmas Eve, a nice restaurant, everyone drinking. I thought, 'Why can't I just have a glass of wine?' But I don't anymore, because even one glass opens a whole Pandora's box. My mind immediately thinks, I can go much higher. That's what 'Should Be Higher' is about - that line, 'The lies are more attractive than the truth.' I still draw on that stuff when I'm singing and performing, to dig my way out of trouble."
