Former model Chrissy Teigen has given up alcohol once again. The on and off boozer has mentioned her sobriety on Instagram on Tuesday.
After posting a video in a swimsuit, singing and dancing with abandon, a follower said that they needed the drugs she was on. The cookbook celebrity replied succinctly, “4 weeks sober.”
The thirty four-year old mother of two, Chrissy recently posted the video while on vacation at St. Barts. This is one among the many times that she has given up alcohol.
Three years ago she mentioned her struggles with alcoholism. She said that she had a history of alcoholism just like her family did. She confessed to drinking too much of alcohol. She would start her day with a glass of wine and continue drinking with no rationing of drinks. She would sometimes behave foolishly under the influence and then feel bad about the disrespect of her behavior caused to her loved ones ,and that in turn brought self-loathing.
The television personality acknowledged her mistakes of excess drinking when she told Cosmopolitan, “It’s not a good look for me, for [husband] John [Legend], for anybody.”
She had been interviewed after returning from an alcohol-free wellness retreat. She had noted that she had to stop drinking and that she had to fix herself. She also added that she was not the kind of person who could have “just one drink,” that could lead to a type of dependency.
Alcohol can be addictive and alcoholism has been classified as a disorder or a disease.
