Former The Jame rocker Paul Weller has revealed giving up drinking four years ago "completely" changed his body and life once he embraced a healthier lifestyle

Paul Weller says giving up drinking as changed his life.

The former Jam rocker has admitted getting clean has greatly improved his well-being, and while he was "never" fat, he has noticed some weight loss since decided to ditch the booze in favour of a healthier lifestyle.

He told the Times Magazine: "I gave up drinking four years ago and loads of things have changed for me. My body f***ing changed completely.

"I was never, like, really, really fat. But I just dropped all the pudgy weight and puffiness I had from being on the p**s all the time. I'm still smoking loads, though."

The 56-year-old fashion and music icon has previously revealed plans to write his autobiography and wants to give his memoir a science fiction twist.

Speaking earlier this year, he said: "Yeah. But with a science-fiction theme to it. Set in space or something."

However, the 'Wake Up the Nation' singer may have a hard time completing his old stories thanks to a ritual of destroying all his notebooks after making a record.

He added: "I had this ritual, all my notebooks, after I finished a record, I'd either burn them or cut them into little pieces.

"My feelings were always get rid of it, burn it, move on. It's only recently that a mate of mine said, 'You should have kept all of them.' So I've started keeping them now."
