Why Did J. Cole Stop Drinking?
KOD, or “Kidz On Drugs,” is an album that deals with the hardships of addiction. In one of the most vulnerable portions of the discussion, Cole shared what led him to set aside alcohol.
“I would have never even thought the day would’ve came where I stopped drinking, because to me it wasn’t even a big deal,” he said. “But this is when I noticed it was a big deal, because when I tried to go out that night and, like, not drink, I could feel the pull and the tug.”
Cole continued to discuss how his body was giving him clear signals that he needed to stop.
“Putting myself in these situations and when I noticed that pull and that tug,” the “ATM” rapper said. “That my body, my mind was telling me like, ‘Yo, damn, I want to have a drink.’ That’s what let me know something is there”
