Chrissy Teigen Marks One Year Of Being Sober

Chrissy Teigen Marks One Year Of Being Sober

The author and model has opened up about why she chose to ditch the booze and says she feels so much better for it.

Chrissy Teigen has marked one year of being sober.

The author and model posted an update to social media celebrating hitting 365 days since she started her sobriety journey.

She wrote: "I miss feeling loopy and carefree sometimes, but to be honest toward the end, it didn’t give that fun feeling anymore anyhow.

"I drank to end crazy anxiety that later mostly went away when I - get this - quit drinking!

"I feel really good. sometimes I get really frustrated looking back on days I should remember way better than I do because of alcohol.

"Like when I drank cafe patron and fell asleep while an Outback Steakhouse chef taught me (my friends) how to make a bloomin onion at my house.

"I wish I was awake for that.

"Wish I remembered really any awards show lol.

"There are pictures from huge moments in life where my eyes just look…gone.

"Some are from real work shoots, some just beach days with the family.

"While I honestly STILL don’t know if I’ll never have a drink again, I do know I never want to be that way again.

"And for now, none is best. I’ll let the bad dreams come up and try to sort them out in therapy, without booze.

"Prayers for a blooming onion redo."

She posted the update alongside a video of her with her husband, John Legend, and her family while on a holiday in Europe.

Chrissy has regularly updated her fans with how many days she's managed to stay off the booze, however she's admitted that it hasn't been easy.

She explained back in 2017 that her drinking was getting out of control.

"I was, point blank, just drinking too much," she revealed to Cosmopolitan.

"I got used to being in hair and makeup and having a glass of wine. Then that glass of wine would carry over into me having one before the awards show. And then a bunch at the awards show.

"And then I felt bad for making kind of an ass of myself to people that I really respected.

"And that feeling, there's just nothing like that. You feel horrible. It's not a good look for me, for John, for anybody."

Teigen has a history of alcohol abuse in her family and said she 'can't have just one drink'.

Well done Chrissy! Here's to another 365 days.
