Kelly Ripa Says This Helped Her Kick Alcohol To The Curb

Just like so many other women who want to live their best years during their later years, Kelly Ripa says that focusing on her health with clean eating has helped her get rid of some of her bad habits, including drinking alcohol. The daytime television talk show host made her comments in a new interview with Parade Magazine this week. Here’s what she has to say.

The 50-year-old former All My Children actress says that she has completely given up alcohol and that her husband, actor Mark Conseulos is supporting her by doing the same.  This comes after Kelly decided to stop consuming alcohol during a “sober months” challenge that she participated in with one of her friends.

“We laugh a lot. We live a healthy lifestyle. We did both quit drinking almost three years ago,” Ripa told the celebrity news outlet. “Not that we were sitting around drinking day and night, but I think that there is something about like clean living—maybe that’s what did it. Maybe that’s the difference.”

Kelly went on to say that while a lot of people find it hard to kick the alcohol habit, Kelly didn’t even think about it twice. In fact, she says that it’s one of the best decisions that she has ever made in her life. That’s because she not only looks great, but she feels great, too.

That’s enough for her to stick with her new, clean lifestyle and not look back. Kelly also noted that giving up alcohol was much easier than when she gave up cigarettes 25 years ago. “It wasn’t even really a thought process. It felt great, I felt like I looked great, I felt like I didn’t feel hungover,” she explained.
