More than you think: that’s the number of rock stars that don’t drink (unintentional rhyme: two-point foul). The idea of a party is always alluring, but some come to the party and leave the booze behind. I support everyone in making their best decisions for living their best life. Some never drank and others chose to quit because of the effect booze was having on their life. We are all a series of decisions. This article isn’t meant to encourage sobriety or booze. Those are your life decisions, not mine.
I do, however, applaud and support those that have chosen not to drink to put their life on a better track. A college friend of mine found herself in one too many situations where she was putting her health at risk when she drank. She got sober years ago and AA is still a very big part of her life. for my friend, it seemed (to me) almost like she had found a new religion. I do not mean that disrespectfully, but much like someone who is active in their religion, she attends meetings and surrounds herself with those on a similar path. I see friends on social media that mention landmark points in their sobriety and I congratulate them. It’s a big deal. They are proud of what they’ve accomplished and I am truly happy for them.
I think it’s important to have strong examples. This list is for all my friends who choose not to drink.
EDIT* Since I posted this, people have been responding with more rock stars that don’t drink so there are more than nine. 🙂
