The newest face of sober curiosity is none other than a face people know really, really well. While everyone who attempted Dry January have been dropping off like flies in the past few weeks, supermodel Bella Hadid became sober months before an arbitrary New Year’s Resolution inspired most people to. Read on to learn more about why she decided to give up drinking, which she shared in a recent interview with InStyle Magazine.
Hadid said she sometimes felt like she couldn’t control her drinking. "I have done my fair share of drinking. I loved alcohol and it got to the point where even I started to, you know, cancel nights out that I felt like I wouldn't be able to control myself.” After her doctor showed her a brain scan showing the effect of alcohol on her brain, Hadid said it became “a lot harder to pick up the glass.”
She says Kin has replaced drinking as a social lubricant: "I drink this when I have crippling anxiety and I can't leave my house or when I'm not gonna drink alcohol but still want to loosen up and be able to speak to people and socialize," she told InStyle.
She says she now has no desire to drink, reminiscing on the hangxiety she no longer feels. “I don't feel the need because I know how it will affect me at 3 in the morning when I wake up with horrible anxiety thinking about that one thing I said five years ago when I graduated high school,” she said. “There's just this never-ending effect of… pain and stress over those few drinks that didn't really do much, you know?”
