Chrissy Teigen Reveals She's '4 Weeks Sober'
In her latest Instagram post, Chrissy Teigen didn't just share a photo from her family's St. Barths vacation. She also revealed that she's four weeks sober, earning a slew of supportive messages from her followers.
She captioned the post "good morning!!!" In the comments, fans complimented her energy levels and sunny disposition. When one wrote, "I need whatever drugs you're on," Teigen responded with, "4 weeks sober" with a few heart and prayer-hands emoji for good measure. Responses were positive, including ones that read, "I just got sober as well!! Beautiful!!! I love this!!!," "this is wonderful," and, "proud of you!!"
Back in 2017, Teigen opened up about her relationship with alcohol in an interview with Cosmopolitan.
"I was, point blank, just drinking too much," she said as she explained her relationship with drinking. "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 also discussed her family's history with alcohol abuse, noting that she knows herself well enough that she "can't just have one drink."
"Nobody really brought it up to me," Teigen added. "They just assumed that it was OK because I always felt OK the next morning. I knew in my heart it wasn't right. It makes you very short with people. People think it's cutesy and fun to go on these boozy brunches, but there's more to it. I've never once been like, 'I'm sure glad I had that boozy brunch!'"
