The 40-year-old musician tweeted “One year ago today, I decided to give drinking a break. A very personal thing for everyone. For me, a constant return on investment.”

In a statement to Rolling Stone, Mayer says:

I put it where drinking used to go, and the quality of life has gone up considerably…. Drinking is a f–ing con. How much is enough? 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. ‘I said two, now it’s three, now we’re at four?’

He says he’s “never had a serious issue with it,” but felt that it was time to take a break. “There’s never an amount that felt like I was succeeding at life. It always felt wrong.”

Celebrate with John Mayer and Maren Morris at this year’s Alice In Winterland on December 12th at The Masonic in San Francisco.
