Performing at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace , Adele 35, said: “I stopped drinking maybe like three and a half months ago.
The singer however acknowledged that it hasn’t been easy refraining from alcohol.
“It’s boring. I mean, oh my God, it’s boring,” she continued. “I was literally borderline alcoholic for quite a lot of my 20s, but I miss it so much. I cut out caffeine [too].”
The singer jokingly added: “So, enjoy your whiskey sour. I’m very, very jealous.
Adele’s Relationship With Alcohol
Adele has spoken about her relationship with alcohol in interviews in the past, particularly around her relationship with her father who was an alcoholic and was not around for much of her childhood.
Speaking to Vogue in 2021, Adele said her drinking habits changed during the pandemic. “I’ve always had a very close relationship with alcohol. I was always very fascinated by alcohol,” she said at the time. “It’s what kept my dad from me. So I always wanted to know what was so great about it. She said her drinking during lockdown “got earlier and earlier” in the day.
In another interview around the same time, Adele said she quit alcohol for six months after her 2019 divorce from ex-husband Simon Konecki as she was keen to escape the “hangxiety” that follows a night of drinking.
Her Latest Projects
The musician’s fourth album, 30, released in 2021, features a song called I Drink Wine, about drowning one’s sorrows and the stresses of adult life: “When I was a child / Every single thing could blow my mind / Soaking it all up for fun / But now I only soak up wine.”
