Noah Centineo Talks About “Relationship” with Sobriety


Noah Centineo confessed that he didn’t cut out alcohol from his life.

During Variety’s “The Big Ticket” podcast, the 23-year-old actor said that many were surprised and the way his fans showed their support after he opened up about his partying ways when he was 17 to 21 years old was nice.

The actor revealed the reasons why he chose to eliminate alcohol and drugs as well as some bad habits after he turned 21 and also about his present condition.

He explained during the podcast that he has a different relationship with sobriety. He said he got clear for one year after saying he would take a year off but then, he started drinking again but there are things that he left in the past which he doesn’t do anymore. He also added that coffee is better.

The To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before actor mentioned that whenever he is working on a project, he cuts out everything with a few exceptions. For instance, he’ll smoke if he’s having a bad day.

Going back to his past, he said that during that dark time there wasn’t much that he wouldn’t do at all. He said that his friends were taking Molly and would talk for up to five hours about some deep philosophical questions.

It was before his 21st birthday that the Charlie’s Angels actor experienced a moment that changed his life. That’s when he realized that he needed to stop, be clean and reset is life. He decided to take a break and since then, he discovered that many of his problems didn’t go away but at least they became more apparent to him.

He stopped taking medication for anxiety and cut out on cigarettes. Moreover, he stopped drinking, too. According to him, he replaced his bad habits by doing yoga and exercising. In a span of just two months, he learned to identify his problems and what causes them.


Noah Centineo’s new celebrity status landed him new acting gigs as well as over 18 million followers on social media. He said that there’s no amount of pressure out there that he hadn’t already put upon himself. He added that he tried to hold himself accountable for his decisions.

Earlier this year, in his interview to New York Times, Ben Affleck also made some confessions including his alcohol abuse history.
