Noel Gallagher, 54, goes sober after he revealed he drank too much in lockdown

0


Last month he said he needed a booze break after going too wild in Ibiza.

And Noel Gallagher decided he will put down the bottle for around 12 weeks starting from Sunday after drinking too much over lockdown. 

The now sober rocker, 54, said drinking his local cider scrumpy and red wine were to blame for his excessive drinking.

The former Oasis singer said: ‘I never used to drink at home as a rule, ever. If I wanted a drink, I would go out to the pub and have a drink.

‘I started drinking at home during lockdown and got right into it. It was just red wine and cider, not in the same glass.

Speaking to BBC Radio 2, Noel continued: ‘I drank a lot of red wine. Because I live out in Hampshire, the local cider is pretty spectacular.

‘The good thing about country cider is you can’t have that much of it or you lose the use of your legs.

‘So you can have one at night and feel good about it and feel good the next day.’ 

He explained: ‘I’m kind of strolling around the house slightly sozzled going, ‘This is a great life I wrote another song today. I might have another drink.’ You can see people are just like, ‘Really? Nice one.’ 

Last month Noel opened up about his decision and said he needed a booze break after going too wild in Ibiza.

Speaking on Matt Morgan’s Funny How? podcast he said: ‘I’m going on the wagon and I’ve fixed a date.’

‘I think it’s going to be like the 12th of September, because I’ve got parties to attend to and the last one is on the 11th.

‘And then I’m going to go on the wagon for 12 weeks I think. I’ve been f**king smashing the a**e out of it in Ibiza.

‘I’m going to do three months which takes me up to the middle of December and then I can get in training for Christmas.’

The musician previously took another three-month hiatus from alcohol in 2011, and felt ‘five years younger’ afterwards.

He explained: ‘I was on my own so I wasn’t going out at all.

‘If you’re a drinker you’ve got a slightly addictive personality. Once you’re past the initial couple of weeks you start to feel better and you get addicted to that.

‘When I came back from the States I looked about five years younger.’

The news comes after the former Oasis rocker recently revealed actor Matt Smith, who features in the video for his band’s song We’re On Our Way Now, loves a wild night out, but that his brother and bitter rival Liam Gallagher isn’t as much of a party animal as people think.

He said: ‘What I’ve found down the years, is actors have to keep it a bit low key because the job that they’re in requires so much investment that studios are not going to invest in a raving party animal. 

‘So actors, you’ll find, lead the double life. ‘Matt Smith can hold his own. He does tend to boot furniture over. 

‘He turns at about 3am or 4am in the morning. He supports Blackburn Rovers, right? And a couple of times, he’s kind of just does that thing where he’ll drift off and then suddenly go ‘ROVERS!’ and kick a chair or something.

‘I was about to have a word with him a couple of times, like, ‘Mate, kick the chair again, and you know, we’re gonna have to work this out.”
