British soul singer Adele has given up drinking alcohol, blaming her partying ways for her 2008 personal troubles.
The Chasing Pavements hitmaker landed a bad reputation for stumbling out of trendy London bars, and now she wants to set a better, healthier example.
And she admits her hedonistic lifestyle left her facing an 'early life crisis'.
The singer even had to axe dates in America last year (08) as a result of "family issues" - leading her to impose a booze ban on herself.
She says, "I was really unhappy at home and there was a lot of family issues going on, which is why I had to cancel dates in the U.S. in the summer. But I got better again - I stopped drinking."
Adele refuses to speculate on how her drinking was related to her "family issues".
