Washington, May 2 (ANI): Rolling Stones member Ronnie Wood’s girlfriend has given up drinking to support the rocker in his battle to stay sober.

Wood, 63, has long struggled with alcohol abuse, and he enrolled in rehab in 2009 to kick the habit for good.

He claims to have successfully given up booze, and has now revealed that his partner, Brazilian polo coach Ana Araujo, has shown her solidarity by quitting drinking as well.

“She gave up drinking… she used to drink a glass of wine and enjoy it, but she said, ‘If you need the support, I won’t do it’,” Contactmusic quoted him as telling Britain’s Daily Mail.

“And she hasn’t weakened, which I think is very admirable… It is nice to be with someone who isn’t like, ‘Come on, let’s go and get wrecked!’

“I can go into bars and parties, and I used to feel, ‘I’m really missing out here,’ but now I don’t feel I am - been there, done it,” he added. (ANI)
