After years of being famously Not a Drinker, Kim Kardashian is done being the sober sister, apparently.

Kim opened up about the decision during a casual chat with Gwyneth Paltrow for the Goop podcast (because that's her life), which is apparently a pretty recent development.

"I started to drink a little bit at the age of 42. Coffee and alcohol," Kim (who is currently 42, proving the recentness of the change) explained (per People). "I feel like I just gotta let loose a little bit."

If you're wondering why Kim decided now was the time to start being more relaxed when it comes to these particular vices, Goop was like "same" and asked Kim exactly that during their interview chat.

Kim, in a moment of peak DGAF-ness, responded: "Cause why not, you know?" And then presumably dropped a mic and walked away. JKJK—but only about the mic-dropping and walking away part. She really did 100 percent answer "Cause why not, you know?" (although, to be fair, the explanation didn't end there).

"I just feel like I work a lot and I focus… all day after school then it's like product meetings and testing things and packaging meetings and everything for SKKN," she added. "I just don't ever feel comfortable just laying around doing nothing. So my version of that has been to spend some time with my friends and have a drink and stay out a little bit later, when I probably wouldn't have done that before."

Kim's drink of choice (in case you'd like to channel her tonight as you're ringing in 2023): Tequila and pineapple juice, apparently.

"It just has to be a little shot of pineapple and a shot of tequila," Kim explained. "I have two shots and I 'm like so good. It's been fun."

For context for anyone not well-versed in Kardashian family drinking habits, Kim is known for rarely drinking (reportedly out of a combination of being *very* into staying in control and very *not* into the taste of alcohol).

"Kimberly does not drink alcohol whatsoever," Khloé told in 2016, shortly after Kim gave birth to her son, Saint. "Pregnant or not, she's just never been into it."

Khloé's take hasn't proven totally accurate, since Kim has been known to have a drink on special occasions.

"She drinks here and there, but mostly abstains," a source close to the reality star/mom of four/mogul/law student told People in 2018. "She may have a glass of champagne on a holiday or for someone's birthday, but it's rare."

In honor of Kim's recent decision to embrace some more social drinking, here's a highlight reel of pictures and videos of her past adventures in alcohol:
