    Swedish DJ Avicii has cut back on his alcohol consumption after being diagnosed with acute pancreatitis.

    He used to drink heavily in order to calm his nerves before gigs. The need to self-medicate lead to all-day drinking.

    "You are traveling around, you live in a suitcase, you get to this place (venue), there's free alcohol everywhere – it's sort of weird if you don't drink. I didn't expect it to last. I just got into a habit, because you rely on that encouragement and self-confidence you get from alcohol, and then you get dependent on it," the EDM star to GQ While he suffered from incredible abdominal pain and received the pancreatitis diagnosis, he still drinks. "I probably drink more now than I should. But I have a pace. I never drink two days in a row," he said. He also revealed that he has never done Ecstacy.
