She’s known for sipping her share of Cosmos on Sex And The City, but in real life actress Kristin Davis steers clear of cocktails, usmagazine.com reports.

“I’m a recovering alcoholic,” Davis, 43, says. “I’ve never hid it, but I’ve been sober the whole time I’ve been famous, so it wasn’t like I had to go to rehab publicly.”

She says, “It’s caused a lot of confusion out in the world. I get sent many a Cosmo! I never drink them.

“I believe (alcoholism) is a disease. I don’t think you can mess with it,” Davis adds.

She says people used to say to her “‘Couldn’t you just have one glass of champagne?’ And I would say, ‘No,’” Davis recalls. “I’m doing well. I still have occasional bad days. Why risk it?”
