John Mayer Celebrates One Year Of Sobriety

John Mayer just reached a major milestone in his life.

On Tuesday, Oct. 24, 2017, the "Waiting on the World to Change" singer took to Twitter to share a personal note of encouragement with his fans in celebration of a major change he's made in his own life: he has been sober for one year.

"One year ago today, I decided to give drinking a break. A very personal thing for everyone. For me, a constant return on investment," Mayer wrote. "I post this because I want people to know that 'that's enough for now' is on the menu, so to speak," he added.

The 40-year-old singer-songwriter previously opened up about his decision to give up alcohol in a candid interview with Rolling Stone in June 2017. "Drinking is a f***ing con. How much is enough?" Mayer rhetorically asked the magazine. "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." Although the "Gravity" singer said that he "never had a serious issue" with drinking, he still felt the need to take a break, adding, "There's never an amount that felt like I was succeeding at life. It always felt wrong."

As revealed in Mayer's March 2017 profile in The New York Times, the "Who Says" singer turned to therapy to work through his "attachment style" and dependence on alcohol. "I'm actually very thoughtfully entering cannabis life," the Grammy winner also shared. As he later explained to Rolling Stone, "I put [smoking weed] where drinking used to go, and the quality of life has gone up considerably."
