Source: Bang Showbiz NewsThe Killers singer Brandon Flowers doesn't think he will ever get drunk again and he insists he won't miss alcohol if another drink never passes his lips again.The Killers frontman - who is a practising Mormon - doesn't really enjoy drinking alcohol and has no desire to get intoxicated in the future, despite booze being so prevalent in rock 'n' roll.He said: "I have been drunk. I haven't drank in five or six years. And I will probably never be drunk again."Brandon - who was born and lives in Las Vegas - also doesn't drink coffee as it's against the rules of Mormonism, which is a form of Christianity. In an interview with The Guardian newspaper, he said: "There's no doctrine about not drinking Coca-Cola. Coffee is still frowned upon. It's the caffeine. I think people become reliant on coffee. And that can't necessarily be a good thing."The 31-year-old musician - who has three children, Ammon, Gunner, and Henry, with his wife Tana - is strict with almost everything that he puts into his body and he has the same breakfast every day as he finds being in a routine "comforting".He explained: "I have the same thing every day. I find it comforting. I have a banana, but I can never eat the whole banana. And I'll drink a couple of Actimels (healthy yoghurt drink). And some kind of cereal with almond milk. And then after that I have a Coke."Brandon was raised in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS Church) - which the vast majority of Mormons are part of.Mormons have a strict health code that doesn't allow the consumption of alcoholic beverages, tobacco, coffee, tea, and other addictive substances. They also have a strict law of chastity, requiring abstention from sexual relations outside of marriage.
