Cale did not see this as an anti-drug or anti-cocaine song in the manner that Clapton did, who said, "It’s no good to write a deliberate anti-drug song and hope that it will catch.

Cale’s songs that Eric Clapton covered, bending a fine rendition of After Midnight. Clapton was attempting to kick his heroin habit by using cocaine, but he was just substituting one substance for another, both equally dangerous, so yes, Clapton was viewing the song from an addict’s point of view, failing to realize, or unable to do so, that drugs can be a great deal of fun and a source of inspiration, with the caveat being.

John Weldon "J. Cale (December 5, 1938 – July 26, 2013) was an American guitarist, singer, and songwriter. Though he deliberately avoided the limelight, his influence as a musical artist has been widely acknowledged by figures such as Mark Knopfler, Neil Young and Eric Clapton, who described him as "one of the most important artists in the history of rock".

Cale - Cocaine Album version. From what I hear, Clapton was nice enough to make it a half-million dollar track for Mr. Cale, which allowed him a lot more freedom in his musical career, which ended in 1980 when he moved into a single-wide trailer without a phone and became a recluse. He described the decade as having been spent "Listening to Van Halen and rap".
