Demi Lovato's perspective on drinking has changed significantly since getting sober, and she hopes others will embrace her viewpoint. She tells Cosmopolitan for Latinas, "When you turn 21 the first thing you think about is alcohol. I want to change that." "I have fans that are going to turn 21 and I want them to know that there are other ways you can celebrate, not just by poisoning yourself and getting yourself into trouble or getting hurt and then going to the hospital, or even just wasting it on drinks when you could be doing stuff for others or celebrating the fact that you made it to 21 years alive," she explains. Lovato spent her 21st birthday last year on a charity trip, and admits to the magazine that when she reflects on her partying years, "I think, 'OK, it was fun at the time, but looking back I don't remember a lot.'"
