    Liam Payne has ditched alcohol and partying for the sake of his son

    The One Direction star was reportedly urged by his pals to curb his drinking and love of partying so he could be there more for his three-year-old son Bear and he is "now in a good place"


    A source told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: "Liam was taking things a bit far with partying. He was given warnings, heeded them and is now in a good place.

    "The most worrying thing for him was he was told to consider whether he’d be around for Bear if he carried on the way he was going. It was a tough warning, probably exaggerated, but it jolted him into action as he’s a devoted dad."

    Liam previously revealed he gave up alcohol for a year but he wasn't actually convinced it made his life any "better" as he missed out on so much socially, so he's still trying to find a balance.

    He said: "I got sober for about a year, cutting down so the only vice was cigarettes. I hadn't planned to go sober forever, it was more important for me to say I didn't actually didn't need to drink. I wanted to prove it. I did the whole year, no booze completely, and at that point I didn't actually know being sober was making my life any better.

    "Things went up, but things like my social life plummeted. I was the biggest recluse on the planet. I would get up at 5am and go running in the park, but at night I would be in bed by 7pm. Is that a way to live your life? And in a strange way I am trying to still figure all that out and get the balance right between being a party animal and being an animal in the gym - the latter not being fun at all. We are all at fault; we all need balance."

    Liam also confessed to going "off the rails" and drinking too much after One Direction's split.

    He explained: "And I hit a peak moment where I knew the drinking was going to get me; I needed to do something about it. I spent a lot of time drinking to escape the crazy world that I had created for myself. I didn't know what I was doing."
