Before I quit drinking, I didn’t really know any other sober women.
Back then, I had a lot of misguided beliefs about alcohol-free living. I thought people who didn’t drink were probably a bit too serious and boring.
If someone had shown me just how many amazing, powerful, fun, intelligent and happy women don’t drink, it would’ve really helped.
So I decided to do that for you.
Here’s a long list of famous women who’ve realised life is better without booze. That’s what this video is all about:
Famous women who don’t drink
Nowadays there are more sober celebrities than ever before. More and more women are realising just how much better life is without booze and they’re happy to talk about it.
Check out the video above to see my full list of 64 famous women who don’t drink alcohol.
There are some women on the list who’ve had high profile struggles with alcohol, but most haven’t. They quietly made the decision that in order to feel their best and have the kind of life they wanted, there wasn’t room for alcohol too. And that’s something many of us can relate to.
Let me know…
Who is your favourite sober celebrity on this list and why? And is there anyone I’ve missed here?

My favourite sober celebrity Jamie Lee-Curtis! I read about her journey sometime last year and was so surprised. She’s always been one of my favourites. Can’t think of anyone you’ve missed! Thanks for this list Kate!
She’s great isn’t she! She’s been sober for more than 20 years I think.
Stacey Dooley and Sarah Milligan, there always smiling and full of life, but all those people look glowing.
I am a weekend binge drinker, currently trying to summon the strength to stop completely. Seeing that the fabulous Adele and Sia (who I usually listen to while drinking) are both sober, has given me a real kick up the bum to get started!
Stacey Solomon, she’s always do happy and full of life
I think Susanna Reid no longer drinks alcohol
Jamie Lee Curtis
I’ve always been a fan of Patricia Heaton. She is sure a good actress, and seems like a good down to earth person.
I agree – she seems like a great person. I only realised quite recently that she was AF too! 🙂
Wow Kate! Thanks for sharing this inspiring list. I took your advice and googled a couple of the women (Jessica Simpson and Jamie Lee-Curtis). Both are women who I remember well from my youth and it makes me feel proud to emulate their courageous and wise move to sobriety.
I think for me it would be Kat Von D. I have read her story and it resinates with me as she decided to go sober mainly to keep her focus. I have picked a great day for my sober anniversary haven’t I. 2 year’s tomorrow.
Congratulations on your 2 years tomorrow Sophia! That is wonderful, well done 🙂
Sarah millican love her! If she can do it so can I !
Those are two cool women for sure. I’m so glad the list inspired you Katie 🙂
Great video Kate thank u alot of those had drink problems great to see they turned there life around
Great list! I thought of someone: Jack Monroe, the lady who campaigns against food poverty. I think she counts as a celebrity? She has talked a lot about her sobriety recently.
Ah how could I forget! I’ve shared quotes of hers before. She can definitely go on the list!
Fantastic list, so many inspiring women there – JLo and Jessica Simpson are a couple of my favourites because I grew up listening to their music, amazing ladies. As an extra addition to the list Fearne Cotton is also a sober and super cool lady
Fearne Cotton, of course!! That is a great addition to this list, thank you 🙂
Barbara Bach who is an ex Bond girl and is married to Ringo Star doesn’t drink. It would have been good if the pictures could have been followed by a list of names as I am awful at recognising people from pictures x
Hi Emma, there are names next to every picture on the video. Thanks for the suggestion of Barbara Bach.
So many to choose from. One that was fun for me was Kelly Ripa. I remember when she was on All my Children
Thank you, Kate.
Adele has always inspired me.
I think Toyah could be added to the list.
Thanks Maggie. Is that Toyah Willcox you’re referring to?
Yep, Toyah Willcox
Tilda!!!!! Not sure why other than I find her acting so very amazing. I am impressed with the list. I didn’t know who they all were but some of my favourites such as Sarah Millican were there. It really does make a difference doesn’t it to know about such women.
I could do a whole separate video on sober comedians – there are a lot of them! I’ve always found that very interesting, that some of the most funny people don’t drink 🙂
Ann Hathaway! Not only is she a brilliant actress but she looks so like my sober friend, Becca and I always smile when I see her picture.
Maybe it was a bit shallow of me, but I really found it so helpful in my early sobriety (particularly as I was quite young), to know that I was in true A-list celebrity company! I just thought, if it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for me ! It’s so good to see this growing movement.
Brene Brown is my favorite because I follow her work because I want to become a life coach! I believe Demi Moore’s other two daughters (besides Rumer) are also sober but maybe they no longer are. . .many people have slipped up during the pandemic. Or they take a break and can go back to drinking in moderation. Everyone is unique!
Brene Brown is one of my favourites too 🙂
Jamie Lee Curtis is also my choice. She’s strong, beautiful and talented.
What a fabulous post, very inspiring thank you Kate really love this
Let’s not forget Janey lee grace
As an aspiring songwriter, I was happy to see that four of my favorite contemporary singer/songwriters, Lana del Rey, Belinda Carlisle, Florence Welch and Lily Allen were on the list. It just reinforces my belief that alcohol does nothing but cloud your mind and prevent you from reaching your full potential.
I love that too. I know some people believe that drinking helps you be more creative, but those ladies are proving that’s just not true 🙂
Thank you for this ❤️
Kelly Ripa – I just think she is so amazing!!!
Thank you kindly, that is awesome. My personal spiritual guide is Jamie Lee Curtis.
It would be very inspirational to get a list of famous men, who do not drink alcohol, too.
Happy international womens day.
The wonderful Gayle King is also sober. I think she said something like she tasted alcohol once and found it so appalling she never tried it again. She has never even tried wine or champagne!
Thank you – I didn’t know that!
I think Kim Cattral is another strong woman that should be included ☺️
Agreed! Interesting how half the cast of Sex And The City don’t actually drink…
can’t narrow it down to one! – Christine Lagarde, Mary J Blige, Tilda Swinton, Stacey Dooley, Sarah Millican, Sia, Zoe Ball, and especially all the women from the Sober School Jan to Feb this year, even if still struggling to be AF, because you are all amazing women, famous or not, who put out so much into the world.
Happy women’s day all, and thanks – on 63 days AF, still tough at times but am doing more moving and (good!) shaking than I’ve done for years. Only in the last few days have I started to feel less exhausted and stressed, but what a wonderful difference, and finally being able to let go of the past x
Sounds like you’re in a good place with this Stella! Congratulations on your 63 days 🙂
Lost of inspiring women on here for me maybe Shania Twain – I used to line dance and love her music. Also Stacey Dooley and Zoe Ball. Bubbly (in the right happy way).
Jamie Lee Curtis is a standout for me.
Anne Lamott is a fav of mine too!
& Melissa Etheridge!
Thanks Kathe, great suggestions!
Great list with so many inspiring women! I believe Alanis Morissette is sober too.
Elizabeth Vargas. Classy, intellegent, wife, mother and so much more let it all out even when there was so much to loose as well as win.
I watched this in tears ! Those celebrities who are musicians resonated with me. The whole scene is linked with alcohol. I feel moved to get singing again and not wasting time. I have a talent I have not used properly. I am retired now but I can still sing.
Demi Moore! She looks amazing!
Denise Welch, I know she had a big problem with alcohol (according to the Media!!) She has come through the battle to Sobriety. She inspires me to continue with my sober journey.
