The legendary WWE star has given up alcohol and taken up yoga. 

Stone Cold Steve Austin announced on his podcast, The Steve Austin Show, that he is giving up beer. He announced to fans that he’s doing it for his health, it’s working, and that he hasn’t had a drink in over two weeks.

“My eating program is going fantastic. [I’m] sticking to my exact macros. [I’ve had] zero alcohol for right at 14 days now,” he said on the podcast. “Pounds are coming off. My strength is going up. Jesus Christ, I’m getting as strong as a goddamn horse over here.”

Quitting beer isn’t the only way the WWE legend is boosting his health, he also told listeners he’s started Diamond Dallas Page’s yoga program.

“No alcohol, and when you hit the weights on a consistent basis and eat what you’re supposed to, it is amazing the difference that you can make or I’m making,” he raved on the show. “I’m also doing my DDP Yoga s***. Hell, I’m going to jump up here and do the splits like a goddamn cheerleader in a minute! I’m flexible as a motherf******. Dallas’ program works like a b****. I appreciate it, Dallas. I appreciate it, man. That’s a badass program. I’m sticking to it.”

He also told listeners about another change, though one that’s less in interest of his health and more about trying something new: medical marijuana.

“The times I had tried to smoke dope way back in the day, I didn’t like it because dope just always made me feel kind of dumb and when I’d said something, I’d think, ‘does that sound stupid or not?’” he recalled. “It just brought me down, so dope never was my thing. I was an alcohol guy. I liked whiskey, tequila, vodka, beer. I could go on and on.”

After getting his hands on a “marijuana cigarette,” Austin recalled becoming paranoid as he approached a checkpoint.

“I’m thinking, ‘man, here I am, retired from the wrestling business, a global icon and a national treasure, and I’m about to get busted for f***ing one joint because I wanted to try out a goddamn marijuana cigarette, so I could get away from the booze,’” Austin recounted.

“We go through there, the dude looks at me and I look at him. We’ve been passing through there for 10, 15 years. I’ve been passing through my whole damn life and they knew who we are and we always say ‘hi’ to them. But anyway, on this occasion, since I’m carrying.”

Despite the trouble, Austin found the marijuana underwhelming and asked his wife for a drink.
