Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards says he has reduced his intake of alcohol these days.

"It's been about a year now. I pulled the plug on it. I got fed up with it" he said in an interview with Rolling Stone.

"It was time to quit. Just like all the other stuff. ... I don't notice any difference really - except for I don't drink. I wasn't feeling [right]. I've done it. I didn't want that anymore," Richards added.

Ronnie Wood, another Rolling Stones guitarist, said he noticed big changes in his friend. "I think the Keith that we used to know and love had this cutoff point where if he had one more, he'd go over the top and he'd be nasty. The cutoff point became shorter and shorter, you know, and he realized that."

Wood, who has been sober since 2010, said Richards' decision to reduce drinking has made him "a pleasure to work with."
