    Comedian Ricky Gervais says he's been drunk "every day" since he turned 18.
    The TV star, 56, talked about his enjoyment of a tipple despite some disasters over the years.
    "I was sober for 18 years – the first 18 years of my
    life," Gervais told the Star on Sunday.
    "And I have been drunk every day since.
    "There has not been a day when I haven’t had a drink."
    Gervais said drinking has led to him soiling his own bed on a number of occasions.
    But he has no plans to give it up.
    In fact, he said he's given up exercise as well.
    "I got fat for 15 years from 30 to 45, then I started to get fit," he said.
    "I didn’t want to give up any food or drink so I
    worked out.
    "Now, because I am old, weak and my bones hurt, I
    cannot work out hard enough to burn off the calories I eat at night."

    Funnyman Ricky shot to fame in 2001 as David Brent in British sitcom The Office - the most successful British comedy of all time.

    Why would you publicly announce something like that?

    I find him occasionally hilarious, but more often these days he's just annoyingly pleased with himself.

    He looks pretty decent to have been drunk for the last 40 years.

    There's probably a grain of truth in what he says but as usual he's exaggerating. You never quite know what's real and what's part of a bigger wind up.

    He was joking. They took it from his stand up, he didn't even give them an interview lol.
    He said this on Twitter :

    This is the one-liner that the papers are pretending was part of a serious confession: “I’ve been sober for 18 years. The first 18 years. Been drunk ever since, obviously”

    I heard the same. From my understanding, it happened when it robbed a bank last Tuesday.

    I think I missed the hilarious bit and jumped straight to the annoyingly pleased with himself.

    I used to say the same thing; then I joined AA.

    Truth be told, some people can get away with drinking like fish. My mother for one. She's eighty and drinks like a fish. She has some circulation issues, but surprisingly, her heart and liver are sound. Some people can drink and drink until they become pickled or preserved to the point where booze sustains them...some of us can't. The neighborhood drunk that I grew up with lived to be seventy-eight. It must be genetics.
