Susanna Reid "really misses" downing shots.
The 47-year-old TV presenter has cut alcohol out of her diet, but she misses the social aspect of drinking, especially sinking shooters with her pals.
Speaking on the "Is It Just Me?" podcast, the "Good Morning Britain" co-host said: "When you cut alcohol out that is an easy couple of pounds.
"As you get older your memory is affected. I just thought, "Alcohol is not great for your memory".
"I really miss it. When you are in a big social group and the shots come out, I miss letting my hair down."
Susanna took action after a doctor warned her that her BMI was too high, and she first admitted she was not drinking alcohol in September.
This comes after the former "BBC Breakfast" presenter showed off a bandaged finger on "GMB" on Monday (12.11.18), after getting an infection from a nasty burn.
She said: "Do you admire me for my resilience this morning?
"I burnt myself on the toaster and then I got a really massive blister.
"I thought, shall I pop the blister or not? I did and now it's infected."
Susanna asked her co-host Piers Morgan for praise for turning up to work and wanted sympathy for the painful injury.
She said: "Come on, you've got to praise me for dragging myself into work this morning despite the fact I'm injured."
The 53-year-old journalist said that it was a "friction burn" from a busy weekend.
He replied: "You were working all weekend and now you've got a friction burn from all your hard work."
