Sonja Morgan has opened up to PEOPLE about her decision to stop drinking – not that she necessarily thinks she needed to.

"I don't have to drink. I don't need to drink. I don't drink at lunch. I don't drink with my daughter. I don't drink when I have business the next day. I wish I could say the same about some of my cast mates, because they do have to drink," she told PEOPLE at Dorinda Medley and Jules Wainstein's Real Housewives of New York season 8 premiere Wednesday at 42 West.

The 52-year-old Morgan, who only sipped water at her afterparty, explained that her RHONY cast mates have been bugging her to quit alcohol for awhile.

Her daughter went to boarding school.  My kids were both at college – Noel went to college – and I thought, 'You know what, I'm going to stay with Sonja.' "
