David Campbell has revealed the fateful day he decided to quit drinking for good. 

The Today Extra host said he had been gifted some Crystal Head vodka by legendary actor Dan Aykroyd and had drank it at home. 

In the morning, the 50-year-old was sick – and he was ashamed that his son, Leo, who was three at the time, saw this. 

‘I heard Leo say, “Oh, Dad’s not well.” I’m hugging the porcelain bowl, and you’re thinking in your head, no, no, no, I don’t want to be sick. He can’t see this. He can’t register this as a core memory’ David tells Stellar. 

He had a flight to catch, and afterwards, David told his wife he was done with alcohol – and never looked back.

‘I got on the plane to Broome and when we sat down to lunch I said, “I’m not going to drink anymore”. 

‘I had this feeling of being bored with drinking. All of a sudden it wasn’t fun anymore and it was playing on my mind.’

David is about to celebrate ten years since his last drink.  

The TV presenter marked the milestone last year sharing a rare photo to Instagram from the moment he decided to quit alcohol.

‘I had this feeling of being bored with drinking. All of a sudden it wasn’t fun anymore and it was playing on my mind’ he said 

‘Nine years sober this week. I was in Broome with my wife and son (pre twins). This happy photo of me is from this time once I made the decision. I am still happy,’ he wrote at the time. 

‘Like a weight has been removed from my shoulders (and liver). Stay strong. If you are struggling seek help.’

David is a father to son Leo, 12, and twins Betty and Billy, nine, who he shares with his wife of 15 years, Lisa Hewitt.

For his eight-year anniversary of sobriety in April 2022, David tweeted that ditching booze ]had been the ‘best decision I made’.

‘Been sober for eight years this week. Best decision I made for myself, my family and my mental health,’ he tweeted.

He ended his post with some encouraging words for others who may be battling something similar: ‘If you are thinking of it, know that it’s wonderful.’
