Amy Poehler is at a point in her life and career where she feels it is time to look back and reflect on her journey, so she decided to pen a memoir, titled 'Yes Please,' and open up about some of her rather surprising past experiences, including drug use.

Poehler opens up about her past drug use

In a chapter called "Obligatory Drug Stories," the 'Parks & Recreation' star reveals that she has experimented with coke, ecstasy, mushrooms and marijuana, but only when she was a struggling actress in her mid-20s.

"I tried cocaine, which I instantly loved but eventually hated," the 44 year-old comedienne writes, via Radar Online. "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."

Her experience taking ecstasy was very similar. "I remember a wonderful UCB [Upright Citizens Brigade] New Year's Eve party where we all danced and drank water and loved each other," she continues. "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."

However, the affect-effects of mushrooms caused Poehler to have a revelation. "Everyone needs love, never hurt a living thing [and] don't worry about the choices you make because everything will be fun because life is a closet filled with pool toys," she writes.

In the present day, the former 'Saturday Night Live' starlet mostly remains drug free due to her being a mother to sons Archie Arnett, 5, and Abel Arnett, 4. "The next day is the thing I can't pull off anymore," she says. "How do you explain to a 4 and 6-year-old that you can't play 'Rescue Bots' because you have to spend all day in bed eating Cape Cod potato chips and watching 'The Bicycle Thief'?"
