Adele has said that she has stopped drinking alcohol since the start of this year.

The singer made this decision, telling her fans at her show at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Vegas over the the weekend, that she was a "borderline alcoholic" in her 20s.  Adele's performance at the venue is part of her Las Vegas shows, titled, 'Weekends with Adele residency'. 

"I stopped drinking maybe like three and a half months ago. It's boring. I mean, I was literally borderline alcoholic for quite a lot of my 20s, but I miss it so much", Adele told the audience. "So enjoy your whiskey sour. I’m very, very jealous". 

Speaking in previous interviews, Adele had admitted that her drinking deteriorated during lockdown, as it "got earlier and earlier". 

"I’ve always had a very close relationship with alcohol," she said previously. "I was always very fascinated by alcohol. It’s what kept my dad from me. So, I always wanted to know what was so great about it". 

She also claimed it left her in a much more vulnerable in front of the media, "They descend, and descend, and descend on you, which drives you f***ing mad".

The singer had also said that she had stopped drinking in 2021, following the death of her estranged father, Mark Evans.

"That’s one great way of really sort of getting to know yourself, is just drinking water and being sober as anything", she revealed. 

The 'Easy On Me' singer's residency finishes on November 4.
