Chrissy Teigen celebrates six months of sobriety: ‘I am happier and more present than ever’

Chrissy Teigen is celebrating six months without alcohol after deciding to give up drinking on her birthday in 2020.

The TV star, 36, shared a series of radiant snaps, posing on a balcony, as she wrote a deeply personal caption to reflect on her sobriety thus far.

Chrissy admitted she can’t be certain she ‘won’t ever drink again,’ but did highlight the positives that have come from quitting drinking.

She began: ‘6 months no alcohol! Honestly kind of sucks saying it because even though I don’t ever crave it now, time has not exactly flown by haha.

‘I prob won’t be excited til a larger milestone like at leasssst 5 years, and sometimes I don’t even know if I necessarily won’t ever drink again? I have no idea what I’m doing honestly.’

The model added that she does know ‘a few things,’ sharing: ‘I now have endless energy, way less anxiety (no more benzos!) and I am *happier* and more present than ever. It’s pretty cool.’

Chrissy concluded: ‘I look forward to having my full body reset after 1 year, then reevaluating to see my new hopes and wishes for the future! Let’s goooo’

Chrissy’s 36.6million followers flooded her comments section with well wishes, including supportive husband John Legend, who wrote: ‘So proud of you my love’

Katy Perry also showed her support by commenting: ‘Beautiful ❤️’

Meanwhile, Octavia Spencer wrote: ‘6 months is something to celebrate. You hit a rough spot in the road and changed your tires. Now you’re enjoying the ride. That’s something to celebrate. ❤️’

Chrissy has been documenting her sobriety on social media after first deciding to give up drinking in November 2020.

The Lip Sync Battle host received a book about sobriety as a birthday gift, later revealing on social media: ‘I was done with making an ass of myself in front of people (I’m still embarrassed), tired of day drinking and feeling like shit by 6, not being able to sleep.’

When marking 100 days sober in October last year, the US star said she felt ‘very clear-headed’ and ‘so excited’ about her progress.

Chrissy has been open about her relationship with alcohol and the history of alcoholism in her family.

Speaking with Cosmopolitan in 2017, Chrissy confessed: ‘I was, point blank, just drinking too much,’ admitting it made her feel ‘horrible’.

The mum-of-two also told Women’s Health Magazine in 2018 that drinking helped her cope with postpartum depression after having Luna, before she was prescribed antidepressants.
