Chrissy Teigen got candid about her alcohol problem. The model sat with Cosmopolitan and talked about her drinking habit. Before Teigen, husband John Legend and 16-month-old daughter Luna visited Venice, Italy, they flew to Bali, Indonesia, where they attended a wellness retreat.

That experience prompted Teigen to reconsider her alcohol intake.

“I was, point blank, just drinking too much,” she told the publication. “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 [explicit] 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.”

In 2013, she announced on Twitter that she was going sober but clearly things are still in the works for Teigen. “I don’t want to be that person. … I have to fix myself,” she told Cosmopolitan while referring to her tweet four years ago.

Teigen has a history of alcohol abuse in her family. She admitted that she is not the type of person who can be satisfied with one drink. “Imagine everything we have,” Teigen admitted. “Everything is there, always. I don’t know how to go to an awards show and not drink.”

The “Lip Sync Battle” host also admitted that she is taking a number of medications for postpartum depression and anxiety, and alcohol does not help, so she is worried. “Nobody really brought it up to me,” Teigen confessed. “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!’”

The “FABLife” host made a change in Bali where she totally abstained from alcohol. She also made healthier food choices and worked out. Since then she has felt much better.

Aside from fixing her alcohol problems, she also revealed that they want to have another child via IVF process that’s why they are traveling because they are expecting a lot of stuff to happen in the future. Teigen has already said that she loves to get pregnant, but she is also open to adoption after experiencing postpartum depression on her first pregnancy.
