Speaking on The Nightcap podcast, Adam said: “It was a health thing (on why he gave up alcohol). I went into the hospital with a stomach issue and they pointed out my liver was probably taking a bit of a hammering.”
“They said, ‘Look, give your liver a rest for six weeks, we’ll do some tests.’ Then Covid happened and six weeks became 12 weeks.”
“And I thought, ‘Do you know what, I’ve cracked this, I don’t miss it, I’m better off without it and I thought, that’s it.”
“I’m not going to say never again, but at the moment no alcohol and it’s fine.”
“But I still like smelling it, especially rum. I’m not so good on whisky.”
