Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards has said he has "pulled the plug" on heavy drinking ahead of his 75th birthday.
The guitarist told Rolling Stone he made the decision a year ago.
"I pulled the plug on it. I got fed up with it," he said.
Richard admitted he still enjoys "a glass of wine occasionally, and a beer".
"It was time to quit. Just like all the other stuff," he continued.
When asked if it was an adjustment, Richards replied: "You can call it that, yeah. But I don't notice any difference really - except for I don't drink. I wasn't feeling [right]. I've done it. I didn't want that anymore."
Richards' fellow Rolling Stones guitarist, Ronnie Wood, chose sobriety in 2010.
"He's a pleasure to work with," said Richards. "Much more mellow. He's open to more ideas, whereas before I'd kind of grit my teeth and go, 'He's gonna give me some s*** for saying this'. Now, he'll say, 'That's cool, man'."
The Rolling Stones will embark on the North American leg of their No Filter tour in Miami next April.
