The decision not to drink alcohol is an entirely personal one. Some choose not to drink because they can’t stand the taste, while others battled past addictions. The majority of these celebs who do not drink alcohol have chosen to be sober because they didn’t want partying to interfere with their careers and we can’t blame them. All of these A-Listers are mega-successful.

1. Jennifer Lopez

It must be how she stays in such great shape. On why she doesn’t drink, Lopez said, “I think that ruins your skin. Of course, during celebratory toasts, everybody’s like, ‘You can’t toast with water!’ So I’ll toast with alcohol and just take a sip.”

2. Lana Del Ray

The Indie singer admitted to GQ that she doesn’t drink because she became addicted to alcohol at 14. Lana says that when her parents shipped her off to boarding school she started drinking. “I was a big drinker at the time. I would drink every day. I would drink alone. My parents were worried, I was worried. I knew it was a problem when I liked it more than I liked doing anything else.” She checked herself into rehab, got sober and hasn’t had a drink since.

Jada grew up in a household with two heavily addicted parents and said that she had sworn to herself that she’d never go down that path. But, one night she found herself at home on sofa polishing off two bottles of wine alone.

I’ve never tried a drug. … It’s just something that I genuinely don’t have a desire for.” The actress does admit however, that she’s a foodie saying, “I’d rather have a little bit of cellulite and go do a food trip and try every ice cream place in the South.” We love that mindset.

Kim even said, “I think you know my sisters do enough drinking to kind of fill up the whole family.” North’s mom admits that she doesn’t even like the taste of alcohol and believes she’s too busy to be hungover and unproductive. We respect that work ethic.

10. Ben Affleck

The Gone Girl actor says his decision to stop drinking was influenced by having a family. Affleck said, “Your lifestyle changes at a certain age. Like me, a lot of my friends are married with kids. When you are in your 20s and you’re not married with kids, you’re having fun. But when you’re in your 30s and you’re not married and don’t have kids, you begin to develop a Peter Pan complex. As you grow older, you have more responsibilities and you have to step up to them.”
