Pete Doherty is working hard to stay clean, he tells NME in an exclusive interview. He says he's still adjusting to his life. "It's hard work, I think I miss it a bit. After years of entrenched drug abuse, you have a mourning period. I know it's a it sad, but I'm in mourning. I'm in mourning for an armful."

This was his first clean interview. He vows to continue on a drug free path and says he's ready to get on the road with his new album, 'Shotter's Nation'.
