Susanna Reid has opened up about quitting booze after she was given a terrifying warning by her doctor
The Good Morning Britain host explained that she’d been told by her GP that drinking was affecting her health and her looks, causing damage that could be irreversible.
“I gave up because a doctor told me to,” she told the Sunday Times magazine.
“I was so concerned because my skin was flushed, I kept getting flare-ups and blemishes and they were leaving red scars.
“I tried all manner of creams and washes, but I knew deep down that what was happening to my skin was probably a manifestation of what I was putting into my body.”

The lifestyle change hasn’t come easily for Susanna, who in the same interview spoke fondly of some her favourite memories of drinking with friends.
“My favourite nights were spent at the Groucho sipping crisp, cold, dry white wine, and ending with vodka shots in dark corners of clubs in Soho.
“I loved the whole bacchanalian pleasure of alcohol: the fizz of prosecco, the soft bubbles of pink champagne, the rich depths of a pint of Guinness, the decadence of a shot of spirits. I had no issues with how it affected my behaviour — I had a lot of fun and no one got hurt.”

The mum of three eventually gave up regular boozing in August last year and went on to lose two stone, but said she’s fallen off the wagon a totally of eight times since then.
“It’s a bit like the end of a relationship when you’re not quite ready to say it’s really over. There are times you fall back into it,” she admitted.
“Each time, I regretted the alcohol. It either made me grouchy or took me days to recover."
