Was Bella Hadid an alcohol addict?
Speaking in an interview with InStyle magazine, Bella shed light on cutting out booze saying it became "a lot harder to pick up the glass" after her doctor showed her the effects of alcohol on her brain. Bella then confessed, “I have done my fair share of drinking.” The social media star reportedly quit drinking six months ago. Taking her drinking issue into the spotlight, she added, “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."
Bella continued, “I don't feel the need [to drink alcohol] 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 concluded, “There's just this never-ending effect of, essentially, you know, pain and stress over those few drinks that didn't really do much, you know?" The model was arrested for a DUI in 2014. She had to serve six months of probation, 25 hours of community service, and 20 hours of Alcoholic Anonymous meetings. Bella’s license too got suspended for a year.
‘Self-help and mental illness/chemical imbalance is not linear’
Bella Hadid in November had opened about her mental health issues after she posted photos of herself crying. She had written, “Social media is not real. For anyone struggling, please remember that”, as reported by People magazine. She continued, “Sometimes all you've gotta hear is that you're not alone. So from me to you, you're not alone. I love you, I see you, and I hear you.”
She added, “Self- help and mental illness/chemical imbalance is not linear and it is almost like a flowing rollercoaster of obstacles… it has its ups and downs, and side to sides.” She concluded, “But I want you to know, there is always light at the end of the tunnel, and the rollercoaster always comes to a complete stop at some point."
