Chrissy Teigen Marks One Year Sober
Chrissy Teigen said she stopped drinking in 2021 and is now “finally” celebrating a year of sobriety.
Chrissy Teigen feels more focused than ever.
On July 18, the 36-year-old posted a video on her Instagram Stories to mark a year without drinking. She wrote “haha finally” as the caption on a screenshot she shared of an app showing her attaining a 365-day streak of sobriety.
Chrissy claimed in a follow-up video that she hasn’t consumed any alcohol in a year while on vacation with her husband John Legend, daughter Luna, 6, and son Miles, 4, and shared it on her Instagram grid.
She wrote in the caption, “I miss sometimes feeling wacky and carefree, but to be honest in the end, it didn’t give that wonderful feeling anymore. “I drank to relieve the extreme worry that subsequently mostly vanished when I—wait for it—quit drinking!”
Chrissy claimed that although feeling “very terrific” right now, she gets “extremely frustrated thinking back on days” she “should remember” but is unable to recall due to her heavy drinking.
There are photos from significant events in my life when my eyes simply appear to be gone, she said.
“Some are from actual professional photo shoots, while others are from family beach outings. I genuinely STILL don’t know if I’ll never drink again, but I do know that I never want to be that way.
And just now, none is ideal. I’ll allow the awful nightmares to occur and attempt to resolve them in therapy, sober.”
Chrissy has been freely sharing her sobriety journey on social media and has been open about her ups and downs ever since she admitted to Cosmopolitan in 2017 that she’d been “point blank, just drinking too much.”
The former Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model announced to her Instagram followers that she has been clean for four weeks in December 2020 and that she was “done with making an ass of myself in front of others.” Chrissy acknowledged having “a few wine snags in the road” six months later, but she had vowed to continue abstaining from alcohol.
She posted on Instagram in September 2021 that she was 50 days sober and added, “I still dunno if I’ll never drink again but I do know it no longer serves me in ANY way.” “I don’t have more fun, I don’t dance, and I don’t unwind. I get sick, go to sleep, and then wake up unwell, missing out on what was probably a good time. I enjoyed myself and respect everyone who can have fun responsibly.”
When Chrissy reached the milestone of six months sober in January 2022, she revealed that she no longer even craved alcohol.
She posted on Instagram, “I honestly have no idea what I’m doing, but I do know a few things: I suddenly have endless energy, way less anxiety (no more benzos! ), and I am happier and more present than ever. It’s quite awesome,
Chrissy’s husband John is, of course, always on her side. On his wife’s six-month sobriety post, the “All Of You” singer sweetly replied, “So proud of you my love.
