Adele is happy to be sober these days, but she misses having a drink now and then. During her Las Vegas stint this past weekend, the singer/songwriter saw a fan drinking alcohol, which made her announce that she has been abstaining from alcohol for a while now.
A source told the Guardianthat she told the crowd at her Vegas show:
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
Adele joked to a fan:
So enjoy your whiskey sour. I’m very, very jealous.- Adele
Adele told the crowd that she was afraid of losing control.
The 16-time Grammy winner has talked about drinking in the past. In a November 2021 interview with Vogue, she said that she was "fascinated by alcohol" because it took away her absentee father, Mark Evans. Evans died of bowel cancer in May 2021 and, according to People, was gone for most of Adele's life after her parents split up when she was 3 years old.
I’ve always had a very close relationship with alcohol. 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.- Adele
The "Easy on Me" singer-songwriter talked to Vogue in 2021 about how hard it was to deal with fame and how she thought about quitting music at one point.
She went on to say:
I got really famous right as Amy Winehouse died. And we watched her die right in front of our eyes.- Adele
Adele told Rolling Stone in 2021 that she had stopped drinking for six months because she was sick of the "hangxiety" that came with hearing she was getting divorced.
This year, the singer told a crowd in Las Vegas that she had drunk "four bottles of wine" before 11 a.m. during the COVID-19 shutdown.
Adele is almost done with her Las Vegas stint, Weekends with Adele, which began on November 18, 2022. On November 4, she will have her last show.
The first run of Adele's shows in Las Vegas was pushed back almost a year because the singer decided at the last minute in January 2022 that they were "not good enough." The Weekends With Adele residency finally made it to the Strip in November 2022. A new part of her residency began in June and will end in November.

Final Words

Fans of Adele have heard that she has stopped drinking. She has said that she was "borderline alcoholic" in her 20s. It was at a show at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas that the singer shared the news. She has been performing there since November 2022.
In the past, Adele has talked about her drinking in interviews, mostly when it comes to her connection with her alcoholic father, who wasn't around much as a child.
Next month will be the last of Adele's shows in Las Vegas after a year of them. She joked earlier this summer that she would "kill" anyone who threw something at her, which is something that people do at some pop shows.
