Ron Wood says he's 16 months sober.  The Rolling Stones guitarist tells the UK's "Daily Mail" that he's no longer "fighting or struggling" with staying off alcohol.

Wood's comments follow an eighth stint in rehab.  He adds that part of what's working for him is staying away from certain friends, people whom he claims encouraged him to drink.  Wood even singles out one famous pal, model Kate Moss as an influence.  He admits that he doesn't see "a lot of her" these days.
