There are no hard statistics on narcissism because they often go undiagnosed. A true narcissist is less likely to become an addict because of the way that they view themselves in relation to the rest of the world. They see themselves as better than, and doing drugs/drinking/vices would bring them down to other, lesser peoples, level. This should not be confused with someone with a large ego, something that Brett Gyllenskog is famous for. Narcissits are also very commonly obssessed with their outward appearance and would not engage in drugs/alcohol becuase of the aesthetic effect they usually have on the user.
