Jon Jones – I was striving for complete sobriety, but I am not ready for it

The 31-year-old was candid about his recurring delinquent habits during an appearance on the Ariel Helwani MMA Show on Monday.

“No, I still drink and smoke pot, too, every once in a while,” Jones said. “I’m in a very healthy place. I mean, who knows. My coaches know I drink. Not like a crazy, crazy amount. Some weekends, mainly on the weekends.”

“It was something I was striving for, especially going to rehab this summer. I was striving for complete sobriety. But, I am not ready for it,” he said. “It is not who I was and it’s not who I am in my life or career. And I am at a place where I can be honest with myself.

“But, being in there definitely matured me a lot,” he concluded while saying he found all of the help of the trauma center helpful in more ways than one and would like to spend some time in a similar facility once a year moving forward just to center himself.”
