According to Ric Flair himself, he has had to make several lifestyle changes in order to stay healthy.
One of the major changes, is the Flair no longer drinks alcohol. The WWE legend and hall of famer was interviewed by the Charlotte Observer and he doesn’t miss drinking:
“Miss drinking? No. Not at all. Ten days of not knowing where you are and being on life support? Even a guy as irresponsible as I have been, and can be, would never subject himself to that again. So yeah. Diet Coke, man. Starbucks coffee. Venti bold. And a lot of Gatorade. Actually, when I first got out of the hospital … I couldn’t twist the top off a bottle of Gatorade. That tells you how weak I was.”
