Bella Hadid shared that she gave up drinking.
“I finished my drinking. I loved alcohol and it got to the point where even when I started, you know, canceled nights where I felt like I couldn’t control myself. “, she told InStyle.
The model said picking up the glass would be “a lot harder” after doctors showed her CT scans showing the effects of alcohol on her brain.
“I don’t feel the need [to drink anymore] because I know how it will affect me at 3 a.m. when I wake up with terrible anxiety thinking about what I said five years ago when I graduated from high school. Basically, you know, the never-ending effects of pain and stress over just a few drinks don’t really have much of an effect, you know? “
The model also recently told her followers that she suffers from depression and anxiety.
“My social anxiety is something that slowly creeps into me as I grow up in my 20s. It’s becoming increasingly difficult for me to go out without a drink to calm my nerves, which makes me not wanted to go out anymore, so I was just hibernating between jobs,” she said.
“With a life that is constantly jostling with society, along with having to work 13 hours a day, I know this is not a sustainable life for me.”
