John Mayer Quit Drinking After Drake’s 30th Birthday Party

John Mayer recently celebrated two years of sobriety after making “a fool” of himself at Drake’s 30th birthday party.

Mayer tells Complex mag, “I was doing a show with Dave Chappelle, and Drake was in the audience. Drake came up, he said hello. And I hadn’t seen him since his birthday. 

He reminded me — well, he didn’t really remind me, he told me for the first time ’cause I was pretty far gone, it was the last night I had ever had a drink — that when I said goodbye to him, and was about to leave the club and go into the street, I put my arms out in front of him and I said, ‘Remember me, and remember this,’ and just walked out. 

"Apparently it was like, what did he just say?”

“Chappelle lost it, that [I] would have said that. And I have confirmation from someone else standing next to him that ultimately, I wasn’t so bad that night. I found out it wasn’t as bad as I thought. Apparently held it mostly together.”

After suffering a six-day hangover following the October 2016 bash, Mayer then decided it was time to make a lifestyle change. 

“If you look at drinking the way you would look at anything else, which is risk-reward, what am I giving up? What am I getting? It’s some of the worst odds that ever existed.”
