John Mayer is taking a break from alcohol.
The 39-year-old singer recently opened up about why he prefers to stick to marijuana.
“I put it where drinking used to go, and the quality of life has gone up considerably,” John told Rolling Stone. “Drinking is a f-cking con. How much is enough? Every time I drank, I was looking for some sort of regulated amount. It always feels wrong for me. I always feel like I went overboard. ‘I said two, now it’s three, now we’re at four?’ I never had a serious issue with it, but I remember looking around going, “This feels rigged. I’m taking a break. There’s never an amount that felt like I was succeeding at life. It always felt wrong.”
“I was always the guy saying that I didn’t like altered states,” he added. “Once you know who you are, then it becomes OK. I’m much more open-minded to small changes in consciousness. I remember every trip I ever took. I remember every thought I ever had when I laid there.”
