“Being sober is the best thing I’ve ever done,” says Florence Welch

In a recent interview, the vocalist of Florence + The Machine, who has been sober for eight years, discussed her present state of sobriety.

She said, “I think sobriety is the best thing I ever did in terms as navigating being in the public eye.

“Because I was one of those drinkers who took it all or nothing, it took me a long time to accept that I had a drinking issue. I can’t manage my drinking if I’m enjoying it, and I stop enjoying it if I’m trying to control it.

Welch continued by stating that her connection with alcohol needs to be controlled around the time of the 2011 release of her album “Ceremonials.”

She explained that the glitz and grandeur of “Ceremonials” served as a barrier to hide the chaos that existed behind the scenes, which is why she believed the record was so dark.

“Sobriety was terribly lonely,” Welch continued. I became interested in music since it combined two of my greatest loves. I was good at singing, having a good time, and drinking.

If somebody is struggling, she continued, “it does get easier.”

Welch, meantime, has received an honorary fellowship from the University of the Arts in London.

The singer was enrolled in the institution but left after her first year to focus on her career as a musician with Florence + The Machine.

Florence + The Machine’s fourth Number One album, “Dance Fever,” was released earlier this year.
