Simon Cowell Quits Drinking, Cold Turkey
Following his dramatic fall down the stairs, Simon Cowell said he is quitting alcohol altogether.
Last month, the mogul fainted and took a tumble down the stairs at his London home. He later told The Sun that he thought he’d broken his neck, and was subsequently forced to miss the first two X Factor live shows during recovery.
“I’ve cut down smoking to two [cigarettes] a day. That’s it!” he told Now Magazine. He added he’s only drinking water from now on.
“Sometimes we get a reminder that we’re not invincible and this was certainly mine. It was a huge shock,” he told The Sun. “They think I fainted because I had low blood pressure and so I have got to really take good care of myself to sort that out. After all I am a dad and have more responsibility than ever.”
