The break up that led Adele to creating one of the best albums, ever, almost paved the way to a drinking problem for her.
In a new biography written by Marc Shapiro, he recounts the time after the break up before she was able to handle the hurt without help from alcohol:
"Adele would drink more than normal to salve the heartbreak."
Apparently she said this to him about the time she fell off a stool during a concert because she was drunk:
"I got so drunk by the time I went on at 2 a.m. I had forgotten the words to my own songs… It was the worst thing ever."
Shapiro then notes:
"Midway through her first tour, she allegedly had a drinking problem."
We don't think this the case now, of course, that she's moved on from the heartbreak.
Adele has always been a raw and emotional woman, and we're just glad that she's been able to tap into her writing instead of tapping the bar for another round.
We love you Adele!

Adele is not only the best singer ever, she's also a super-powered miracle healer!
Her song Rolling in the Deep woke a 7-year-old girl from a coma!
Wow! What a voice!
If you saw Ben Utecht at 6'6" and 245lbs, with a Super Bowl ring on his finger would you look at him and think, "I bet that dude can sing?"
Feeling under the weather? Get well with Adele!
A study has found that surgery patients listening to tunes like Someone Like You have less anxiety about the operation AND as a result of being calmer, "recover more quickly."
John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford examined the stress levels of 96 patients and found levels in those listening to enjoyable music were 29% lower than those laying in silence. Study leader Hazim Sadideen explained:
"Undergoing surgery can be a stressful experience for patients and finding ways of making them more comfortable should be our goal as clinicians. There are also good medical reasons — calmer patients may cope better with pain and recover more quickly."
Sometimes music, just like laughter, really is the best medicine.

We think she's PERFECT the way she is, unless she's unhealthy!
That's why we totally support Adele's decision to take up pilates if she wants to feel better and to be in better health — because we can't believe she's doing it just to drop two dress sizes! That doesn't sound like her!
The AH-MAZING thing is that
George Michael didn't do so well during his BRIT Awards appearance and it's causing quite the stir!
The singer flubbed his lines while presented the Album of the Year award to Adele, and many speculated as to why his speech was impaired.
Some thought he was sick while others made light of the situation
A few even thought he was just plain drunk! We think George has a bit more class than that!
While his spokeswoman claims he was 100% sober, sources say that George is still feeling woozy from his illness and the jet lag from Australia through him for a loop.
We're willing to give George the benefit of the doubt.
Feel better, George!

After 6 Grammy awards and 2 BRITs this year, Adele's music BETTER be featured in the Symphony of British Music at the London Olympics closing ceremony this summer!
Who better to represent the talent that the UK produces than Adele, right? We're happy to report that Stephen Daldry, the executive producer of both the opening and closing ceremonies, and music director David Arnold totally agree with us!
They have revealed that
