Pro wrestler “Stone Cold” Steve Austin is going cold turkey when it comes to alcohol.

The WWE superstar said he has been sober for more than two weeks, Sports Illustrated reported. Austin, 53, speaking on his podcast, said he is pursuing a healthier lifestyle.

“My eating program is going fantastic,” Austin said on his podcast. (I’m) sticking to my exact macros. (I’ve had) zero alcohol for right at 14 days now.

“Pounds are coming off. My strength is going up.”

Austin’s beer drinking has been a staple of WWE events for more than two decades, and YouTube videos show the wrestler in drinking contests, sharing brews and spraying rivals with the foamy drinks. He even shared a beer with Vince McMahon Jr. before putting his signature “Stone Cold Stunner” move on the WWE owner.

“His favorite beer is his next one,” WWE commentator Jim Ross has said.

Apparently, not any more. “Stone Cold” is happy to be sober.

"No alcohol, and when you hit the weights on a consistent basis and eat what you're supposed to, it is amazing the difference that you can make or I'm making," Austin told Sports Illustrated.
