    British rocker Paul Weller has confirmed that he is an alcoholic, but that he gave up drinking in 2010 when he married Hannah Andrews. He is now clean and sober. Congrats, Paul.

    Weller told The Times, a British paper, that "I feel fitter now. I go to the gym. Stopped drinking about 16 months ago… Time for a lifestyle change. I couldn't keep doing it. It was killing me. I miss the silliness. I'm not one of those people who can just have a couple of drinks. If it's two, it might as well be 20. If it's 20, it might as well be 40. I think I'm an alcoholic, definitely. Yeah. I would have thought so."

    He also said it wasn't easy to give up the booze, since he didn't want to go to AA.

    What do you think of Paul Weller's frank discussion of and his confession about his drinking problems?
