Most of us know Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi from her days on MTV's "Jersey Shore," where she would chug just about any alcoholic beverage with the gusto of Dean Martin at an open bar.

But nowadays, Snooki is a mom, and she's put her drinking days behind her (for the most part). In her upcoming book "Baby Bumps: From Party Girl to Proud Mama, and All the Messy Milestones Along the Way," Polizzi explains exactly why she gave up alcohol, and it has a lot to do with her 1-year-old son Lorenzo.

After a night of boozing a while back, Polizzi claims she "could smell the sake bombs" in Lorenzo's bottle. "My milk was so full of alcohol, I could have used it to start a bonfire in the yard," she wrote. "I could have cleaned the toilet with it."

Her drinking also caused a rift between her and fiance Jionni LaValle, who once called her a "horrible mother" after she confessed to blacking out during a night of heavy drinking with Jennifer "JWoww" Farley, her co-star on MTV's "Snooki & JWoww."

"Baby Bumps," which is out on Dec. 31, is also reported to contain Polizzi's musings on such topics as passing gas and defecating while pregnant.

Stay classy, Snooki.
