Lucy Hale has quit drinking and she couldn’t be happier about the decision.

The 27-year-old Pretty Little Liars star spoke about her new lifestyle change with the online style publication Byrdie. As she prepares for the end of her hit Freeform show, Hale had traded in alcohol and partying for SoulCycle and a healthier lifestyle.

"PLL was a great chapter of my life, but it’s very exciting to start over," Hale admits. "Becoming a part of this popular show … everyone just says yes to you, so you get away with a lot, and then you make mistakes."

Hale’s struggle to find her own identity while starring on PLL was a major factor in her decision to stop drinking.

"I’m just always trying to surround myself with better people and be the best version of myself possible," she explains, adding that she has "no interest" in the party scene anymore. 

SoulCycle has been an important outlet for Hale, noting, "I go home, and my dad’s like, 'You L.A. hippie with your crystals and your SoulCycle!' I always used to make fun of those people, but now I think it’s just magic."
