Snooki: I hate drinking

Snooki has quit drinking because she wants to keep her baby weight off and is focused on motherhood.

The former Jersey Shore star, real name Nicole Polizzi, made a name for herself as one of the hardest partying castmembers of the hit MTV show.

She has been seen on camera stumbling down streets, getting into vicious fights and fist-pumping in dozens of nightclubs.

All of that changed when she welcomed her first son with fiancé Jionni LaValle last August.

Snooki spoke then about giving up her hard-partying ways.

But now the mother-of-one has completely abolished alcoholic beverages except on rare occasion.

“I hate drinking now,” she told America’s OK! magazine.

The 25-year-old star can’t even remember the last time she was at a nightclub.

“I’d rather be with my son, and I’d rather be home instead of going out, so I haven’t been to a club in I don’t know how long, and I don’t have the urge to go to a club,” she insisted.

While baby Lorenzo is a large part of the inspiration for her lifestyle change, Snooki admitted vanity also played a part.

“I gain weight, which I hate, and then also, you wake up the next day, and you have to take care of a child, and it’s not fun when you have a hangover. If I do drink, it’s when I travel or I’m away, but other than that, I can have fun without drinking,” she said.

The star said she’s lost “almost 50” pounds since giving birth to her son.
