Fitness superstar Kayla Itsines has taken to Instagram to explain to her 7.2 million followers why she hasn’t touched alcohol in six, nearly seven, years.
“I have of course tried alcohol before, but it's just not something that interests me at all,” she wrote in response to a fan’s question.
“I never really liked the taste, the way it made me feel, or any of the experiences I had associated with it.”
The 26-year-old says she isn’t trying to make anyone feel bad about their drinking habits, it’s just not for her.
“I feel that I am a role model for a lot of young girls and I would love to show them that it's okay not to drink if you don't want to. I am proud to spread that message. You don't need to feel like you HAVE TO drink alcohol to fit in. You can still be social and have fun without it.”
And that’s a pretty important reminder for us all.
