The sports commentator has been a pioneer since he was a teenager and admits that after experimenting when he was younger, he had no desire to drink again.
“I never had any desire for the alcohol, maybe it was a parental influence,” he told the Irish Daily Mail.
“Both my parents were teetotal as well, I experimented once or twice behind their backs, as most of us do.”
“I got sick once and I thought, I’m never going near that stuff again.”
Marty went on to say that he also never had any desire to smoke and he thinks that’s because his father’s smoking habit out him off it.
“I never smoked, my father smoked heavily and I think it was a turn off,” he said.
