AFTER 21 MONTHS
One of the smartest choices of my adult life was my decision to stop drinking in February 2013. Twenty-one months in, although committed to my sober lifestyle, I felt odd and alone. When I randomly clicked on an article about celebrities who don’t drink and read about the dozens of successful people who conclude that they feel better sans the sauce, I choked up. It was and continues to be a very positive and welcome reminder that I’m in great company.
28 MONTHS AND COUNTING
After reading the random article on sober celebs, I did a roundup of 10 inspiring female celebrities who don’t drink, here on my site. It’s one of my favorite posts and reading it still gives me that fist-pump feeling. I am now 28 months sober and counting, here at the near end of July. Summertime is always a challenging time to be a non-drinker, especially at weddings, and at any (and every) outdoor occasion. But so are the Holidays, and weekends, and cocktail hours, and pretty much any other time you can think of. So, because these roundups remind me of what wonderful company I am in, and because I know that they give a good feeling to others as well, I’m following up with 15 more inspiring celebrities who don’t drink, all of whom are male. Whether you drink or not, you can’t help but be moved by the improved lifestyles chosen by this group of gentleman.

Like many athletes, and unlike many soccer players, all-round role-model and English ambassador David Beckham has abstained from alcohol for years. The soccer star keeps in superb shape by declining both drugs and booze.
