Former lean addict Lil Boosie told TMZ that he's happy prescription drug company Actavis is ceasing production of their codeine/ promethazine cough syrup, saying that the drug took a toll on his life and that discontinuing the product will save others.

Boosie revealed that he nearly died 3 or 4 times from drinking lean and that it's had serious effects on the health of several rappers. Most notably, rapper Pimp C of UGK died of an overdose of promethazine and codeine coupled with a preexisting sleep apnea condition.

He added, "Once you on, it's hard to get off ... it's damn near impossible."
