Chrissy Teigen Celebrated One Year of Sobriety, “One Year of No Alcohol and I feel Really Good”

Chrissy Diane Teigen is an American model and television personality who made her modeling debut in 2010 in the Annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.

Teigen also cohosted the American musical reality television series Lip Sync Battle with LL Cool J and was a judge on the comedy competition series, Bring The Funny.

In July 2022, the 36-year-old model and influencer shared that she was one year sober from alcohol.

Chrissy, who has a huge fan following on Instagram, shared a candid video message with her nearly 40 million followers and wrote,

“Not a drop of alcohol in 365 days! 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! sigh.”

She continued, “Anyhow 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.”

She said that although she is not sure if she will ever resort back to alcohol, she is going to make sure to get therapy and avoid drinking.

“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,” Teigen concluded her post.

Chrissy’s heartwarming video message received thousands of comments where people congratulated her for getting her life back on track and encouraged her to stay determined.

“I’m glad to hear you are in a good place. Keep it up Chrissy. We love you,” one fan commented.

“That’s a huge accomplishment and you’re a strong person just take it one day at a time,” said another.

Her Grammy-award-winning husband and famous American singer and songwriter, John Legend, also commented on Chrissy’s post and said he was so proud of her.

“Soooooo proud of you, my strong, beautiful wife!”

Meanwhile, fellow supermodel Naomi Campbell penned,

“Well done @chrissyteigen .. it’s better on this side. I love being in recovery. Sending love.” 

Last year in December, Chrissy sat in an interview with People Magazine and opened up about her struggles with addiction to alcohol.

“I think the thing that makes me happy is realizing that I’ll still say stupid things and act and make stupid mistakes, even sober,” she said.

“I used to make crucial Thanksgiving errors, maybe one or two, and I still made a really bad one this year,” she added while admitting that she accidentally added three cups of sugar instead of 3/4 cup in one recipe.

“But I actually caught it, and that’s something drunk Chrissy would never have done. I caught it before it went out, and I was like, ‘Wow, I am so sober.'”

“It feels like a little kid, right?” she continued. “You don’t want to keep talking about it, and sometimes I’m like, ‘Oh my God, am I talking about it too much?'”

She said that she made many mistakes in life, but she’s hopeful to become a better person and quit drinking for good.

“It is weird to go through these milestones of, ‘Oh my God, this is the first time that I’ve woken up after a birthday, and I remember everything, I feel great.'”
