Chrissy Teigen Opens Up About Struggling with Alcohol: I Was 'Drinking Too Much'

Chrissy Teigen is opening up about struggling with alcohol and how she had to cut back on her consumption in recent months.

“I was, point blank, just drinking too much,” the 31-year-old model told Cosmopolitan at an event over the weekend, where the writer notes there were unlimited drinks but Chrissy stuck to Red Bull. “I got used to being in hair and makeup and having a glass of wine. Then that glass of wine would carry over into me having one before the awards show. And then a bunch at the awards show. And then I felt bad for making kind of an ass of myself to people that I really respected. And that feeling, there’s just nothing like that. You feel horrible. It’s not a good look for me, for John, for anybody.”

“Imagine everything we have. Everything is there, always. I don’t know how to go to an awards show and not drink,” she continued about going alcohol free. “[It was] really, really wonderful. I would wake up feeling amazing. My skin felt amazing. I was just so happy.”

“Nobody really brought it up to me,” she continued. “They just assumed that it was OK because I always felt OK the next morning. I knew in my heart it wasn’t right. It makes you very short with people. People think it’s cutesy and fun to go on these boozy brunches, but there’s more to it. I’ve never once been like, ‘I’m sure glad I had that boozy brunch!’”

“I used to think it was kind of nutty to have to go totally sober,” she added, “but now I get it. I don’t want to be that person. … I have to fix myself.”
