John Mayer alcohol-free for a year now

John Mayer

John Mayer recently announced that he’s marking his first year without alcohol.

“One year ago today, I decided to give drinking a break: A very personal thing for everyone; for me, a constant return on investment,” the American singer-songwriter, who recently celebrated his 40th birthday in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, wrote on Twitter. “I post this because I want people to know that ‘that’s enough for now’ is on the menu, so to speak.”

In an interview with Rolling Stone last June, he described drinking as “a f**king con.” “How much is enough? Every time I drank, I was looking for some sort of regulated amount,” he said.

“It always feels wrong for me. I always feel like I went overboard.”—ALLAN POLICARPIO
