The Reasons Why These Celebrities Stay Away from Booze Will Shock You
Despite all the health and addiction-related problems associated with alcohol, it is still over a $25 billion industry in the US alone. One of the main reasons for it being such a huge industry, one that is still growing at a fast pace, is the advertisement of alcoholic beverages, and the cultural demand for them.
It is extremely hard to find any motivation to quit or control your alcohol intake when you cannot avoid convincing advertisements or go against social norms. Here, we will try to give you the motivation through stories of celebrities who claim to have quit drinking or never started drinking, for several reasons.
Stephanie Meyer Quit Because of Religion
Besides being a hugely successful writer, one who authored the best-seller series Twilight, Stephanie Meyer is a strict believer and follower of Mormonism. Her religion requires abstinence from the consumption of alcohol, which has certainly been a good enough reason for her to stay sober throughout her life.
Warren Buffet Quit For Better Health
Warren Buffett, one of the richest men alive, is in great shape for an 88-year-old man. He explains his reasons for not consuming alcohol in a very poetic manner. Imagine you’re granted a wish for your favorite car at the age of 16 but that is going to be the only car you are ever going to own.
Of course, you will protect it with your all, get to know all about its engineering, and maintain it as per the instruction manual and other maintenance needs. According to him, that is the case with your body as well: you only get one and you must take care of it in the best possible manner.
Blake Lively Quit Because of Taste
Blake Lively told Allure magazine that she just doesn’t have the stomach for alcohol or any other drug for that matter. According to her, it is how these substances force a feeling inside her head that makes her dislike them. She is also not into nightclubs for the same reasons, because they try to get you to enter into a state of trance.
Jennifer Hudson Is Simply Not interested
Can you imagine someone refusing an exotic alcoholic beverage or a chilled beer on a hot summer day by simply saying that they are not interested? Well, that’s something that Jennifer Hudson might do. As per our sources, she is simply not interested in alcohol no matter what form it takes. Also, as expected, nobody believes her when she gives that reason.
Gillian Jacobs’ Grandfather Owned A Brewery
Gillian Jacobs revealed in an interview to Jimmy Kimmel that she has been sober her whole life. According to Jacobs, her grandfather owned and ran a brewery, and hence one can easily draw a connection between him owning a brewery and her deciding to stay away from alcohol altogether.
Basically, this is an act of plain old teenage rebelliousness, the desire to be different from the elders in the family, and so it can be said that her subconscious mind has kept her away from it.
Kandi Burruss Quit For Fitness and Breastfeeding
Reality TV star Kandi Burruss says she quit alcohol when she was pregnant with her second baby and, after that, she swore to stay sober so that she could get into good shape again. After giving birth, while she was breastfeeding her child, she had to stay sober for over a year and then after that, she just liked how she felt and she made the decision of staying away from alcohol altogether.
Rozonda Thomas Chose The Healthy Lifestyle
Rozonda Thomas, commonly known as Chilli, has reportedly become sober because she has vowed to lead a healthy lifestyle. She has also forbidden for herself soda drinks and eats only healthy food.
Kathy Griffin Has a Childhood Fear/Promise
Renowned comedian and actress Kathy Griffin promised herself that she would never go near alcohol again after she choked on a beer when she was only 10-years of age. Her father saved her from the choking and she was horrified by the experience and hence, after that incident, she never opted to go near it ever again.
Tyra Banks Was Lucky
Tyra Banks says she has been sober since the age of 12. She tasted alcohol when she was 12 years old, and simply calls herself lucky to have saved herself from a lifetime of misery and dependence.
Anne Hathaway Credits Good Parenting
Anne Hathaway, who is a successful actress and the mother of a beautiful boy, does not like the way she behaves when she is drunk. Well, nobody likes his or her behavior in the state of drunkenness, but Anne had to ensure her son’s well-being and therefore decided to quit alcohol completely for 18 years until her son becomes an adult and tries it for himself.
