Chris Evans has revealed he managed to go without an alcoholic beverage for 100 days despite being convinced he wouldn't even be able to manage one day

Chris Evans quit drinking for "100 days".

The BBC Radio 2 DJ - who was known for his wild partying in the earlier years of his career - has admitted giving up alcohol was much easier than he thought it would be.

Speaking about working with Alcoholics Anonymous on his new book 'Call the Midlife', he explained: "I went to see someone from AA about drinking. Do I drink too much, do I have anything to worry about? All of these things that play on my mind.

"I have always thought about it. When I did 100 days not drinking that was such a revelation because I didn't touch a drop. I didn't know I could do it for a day.

"And it was so much easier than I thought and so much less revelatory. It didn't impact on my life at all really."

The 49-year-old presenter - who is fronting the new revamped 'Top Gear' - claimed his relationship with alcohol has changed now.

He told The Sun newspaper: "I've massively cut back now. I don't drink at all in the week unless I am going out, which is hardly ever.

"It is all about the definition of what an alcoholic is. I spoke to a woman who is recovering and she was amazing.

"She says most alcoholics she finds are huge egocentrics with an inferiority complex. It is a brilliant phrase."
