Blake Shelton Admits Challenges in Curbing Alcohol Consumption: “I Haven’t Managed to Stop Drinking Yet. Even Cutting Back Has Been Hard.”


Blake Shelton’s New Year’s resolutions often revolve around reducing his alcohol intake, but he candidly admits that he struggles to follow through on this commitment. Despite the resolution to cut back or quit drinking altogether, Shelton acknowledges the difficulty in achieving this goal. His approach to New Year’s Eve is low-key, sharing that if he and his wife, Gwen Stefani, are at home, they likely retire early.

Approaching their third holiday season as a married couple, Shelton and Stefani have embraced unique traditions, particularly in their Thanksgiving celebrations. Over the years, they experimented with unconventional turkey recipes such as a Flamin’ Hot Cheetos-crusted turkey and a Funyuns-covered turkey. For Christmas, they opt for more intricate recipes like pasta timpano, acknowledging the challenge of these dishes and the joy they bring despite their indulgence. Shelton humorously highlights the seriousness with which his Italian in-laws and he himself treat food, emphasizing the unique and delicious aspects of their holiday traditions.
