Katie Price admits she’s ‘forgotten what it’s like to drink’ after going a year without alcohol and drugs.
The My Crazy Life star sought treatment at The Priory clinic in January 2020 after spiralling into substance abuse.
However, Katie’s admirably stayed sober for around a year and admits she feels ‘embarrassed’ now looking back at how she used booze and cocaine to cope with her mental health issues.
Speaking to Bobby Norris and Stephen Leng on Access All Areas for Fubar Radio, Katie explained: ‘Since I’ve been out of The Priory, I have not drunk nothing. And now I’ve forgotten what it’s like to drink, and that’s not like me because I’m quite sociable and stuff. Then obviously I was into the coke because I was self-medicating.
‘When I look at it all now I’m like, oh my God, I’m a completely different person now. What the hell? I’m actually embarrassed as to how I’ve acted and stuff, but you know, that’s part and part of mental health. You can’t help it.’
Katie, 42, went on to open up about her relationship with Carl Woods, who she began dating last summer.
The mother-of-five admitted she’s ‘so happy’ that she met the former Love Island star after going to rehab and once she’d ‘sorted [her] head out’.
‘He has now met me as the best person,’ Katie said, adding that Carl, 31, suits her new sober lifestyle as he also doesn’t drink.
‘I had so many people saying, she won’t change, she won’t change, you know, and I’ve proved it to everyone,’ she said proudly.
Katie checked into The Priory at the beginning of last year before lockdown for ‘severe trauma rehabilitation’ after suffering online abuse and also dealing with her mum Amy’s terminal lung illness.
Since then, the reality star has been busy focusing on her children; Harvey, 18, Junior, 15, Princess, 13, Jett, seven, and Bunny, six.
Last month, Katie won praise for her BBC documentary Katie Price: Harvey and Me, which depicted her relationship with son Harvey, who has autism and other complex needs, and her mission to find him a suitable full-time residential college.
The film received widespread acclaim and has been watched over four million times.
