A video of a drunk Chrissy even went viral with outlets like Buzzfeed calling it adorable:
Now the model/mom tells Cosmopolitan that she is giving up alcohol cold turkey.
“I was, point blank, just drinking too much, 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.”
The Lip Sync Battle co-host said that it was a personal decision, “Nobody really brought it up to me, 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!'”
During a recent vacation in Bali Teigen abstained completely and told Cosmo how great it made her feel. “I would wake up feeling amazing. My skin felt amazing. I was just so happy.
Teigen went on to share that there were a lot of reasons why she made the choice, she and John have plans to endure IVF treatment in hopes of conceiving another child, she’s taking anti depressant medication for her postpartum depression and she just wanted to make sure she was taking the best care of herself. “I used to think it was kind of nutty to have to go totally sober,” she said, “but now I get it. I don’t want to be that person. … I have to fix myself.”
Congrats to Chrissy for putting her health first!
