Chrissy Teigen Celebrates 50 Days Of Sobriety
Chrissy Teigen announced she was 50 days sober from alcohol in a Saturday post.
The 35-year-old Cravings founder confessed that it was her ‘longest streak yet’ without booze after first experimenting with sobriety back in November following her tragic pregnancy loss.
Teigen had been open about her complicated relationship with alcohol in the past and also has a history of alcohol abuse in her family, but confessed to the possibility of drinking again someday.
Teigen shared a video of her laying on the floor with her, husband John Legend, and two kids Luna and Miles. She wrote:
Today is my 50-day sobriety streak! it should be nearly a year but I had a few (wine) hiccups in the road. this is my longest streak yet! I still dunno if I’ll never drink again but I do know it no longer serves me in ANY way. I don’t get more fun, I don’t dance, I don’t get relaxed. I get sick, fall asleep, and wake up sick, having missed what was probably a fun night. I had my fun with it and appreciate anyone that can enjoy it responsibly!!!!,’ she continued to say and also confessed that she had worked out three days this week which ‘is unheard of for me.
Teigen first got sober in late November and announced just days ahead of the new year that she had reached four weeks.
She embarked on the journey as a way to help herself heal following the loss of her and Legend’s son ‘Jack’ due to partial placenta abruption in late September at just 20 weeks.
The Chrissy’s Court star credited a book she had received (Holly Whitaker’s Quit Like a Woman: The Radical Choice to Not Drink in a Culture Obsessed with Alcohol) as the reason for her lifestyle change.
She told her followers at the time: ‘I was done with making an a** of myself in front of people (I’m still embarrassed), tired of day drinking and feeling like s**t by 6, not being able to sleep.’
