John Mayer Marks One Year of Sobriety With Personal Message to Fans
John Mayer is opening up about his drinking habits.
On Tuesday morning, the Grammy winner took to Twitter with a personal announcement to his fans and followers.
As it turns out, the man behind hit singles like “Gravity,” “Your Body Is a Wonderland” and “Daughters” hasn’t had a drink in 365 days.
“One year ago today, I decided to give drinking a break,” John shared with his 1.2 million followers. “A very personal thing for everyone. For me, a constant return on investment.”
He added, “I post this because I want people to know that ‘that’s enough for now’ is on the menu, so to speak.”
Before you think John’s lifestyle choice has made his life a bit less exciting, you couldn’t be more wrong.
Before and after turning 40 earlier this month, the performer has traveled around the world to perform in sold-out arenas. And in a recent interview with GQ Style, John explained why he’s so fulfilled with the life around him.
“The reason I’m so happy now is because a lot of expectation that I had for myself was probably a little bit unnecessary. I have a perfect image of ambition and reward for my life right now,” he explained to the publication. “I know what to expect, I know how much I should be asking for when I knock on the door, and I get it.”
John continued, “I really write down on a piece of paper what I want out of life and what I want out of work and what I want out of ‘fame’—and I have all the stuff I want.”
Looking ahead, the singer’s band Dead & Company just announced several fall performances.
As for New Year’s Eve, John will join Dave Chappelle for a special “Controlled Danger” show at The Forum in Inglewood, Calif.
