Chrissy Teigen celebrated 50 days sobriety, which she claims is the ‘longest streak without alcohol’. However, Teigen admits that there were ‘few wine (wine) hiccups along the route after getting sober in November
The 35-year-old Cravings founder confessed that it was her ‘longest streak yet’ without booze after first experimenting with sobriety back in November following her tragic pregnancy loss.
Teigen had been open about her complicated relationship with alcohol in the past and also has a history of alcohol abuse in her family, but confessed to the possibility of drinking again some day.

Teigen shared a video of her laying on the floor with she and husband John Legend’s two kids Luna, five, and Miles, three.
‘Today is my 50 day sobriety streak! it should be nearly a year but I had a few (wine) hiccups in the road. this is my longest streak yet!,’ she began.
‘I still dunno if I’ll never drink again but I do know it no longer serves me in ANY way. I don’t get more fun, I don’t dance, I don’t get relaxed. I get sick, fall asleep and wake up sick, having missed what was probably a fun night.
‘I had my fun with it and appreciate anyone that can enjoy it responsibly!!!!,’ she continued to say and also confessed that she had worked out three days this week which ‘is unheard of for me.’

Teigen first got sober in late November and announced just days ahead of the new year that she had reached four weeks.
She embarked on the journey as a way to help herself heal following the loss of she and Legend’s son ‘Jack’ due to partial placenta abruption in late September at just 20 weeks.
The Chrissy’s Court star credited a book she had received (Holly Whitaker’s Quit Like a Woman: The Radical Choice to Not Drink in a Culture Obsessed with Alcohol) as the reason for her lifestyle change.
She told her followers at the time: ‘I was done with making an a** of myself in front of people (I’m still embarrassed), tired of day drinking and feeling like s**t by 6, not being able to sleep.’

Chrissy has been open about her relationship with alcohol in the past and has poked fun at herself when she’s been ‘drunk’ on social media at several points.
In a 2017 Interview with Cosmopolitan, she said: ‘I was, point blank, just drinking too much.
‘I got used to being in hair and make-up 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.’
She continued: ‘And then I felt bad for making an a** 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.’
‘Drunk crying’: In February she shared a photo of herself ‘drunk crying’ at Beyonce
Memorable moment: Teigen also shared a photo of herself crying at the Golden Globes several years back as she wished ‘this drunk dumb***’ a happy anniversary
In 2018 she spoke to Women’s Health Magazine and said that postpartum depression after having Luna also caused her to drink to cope with the pain before she was prescribed an antidepressant.
‘After Luna, I was drinking too much. I wasn’t eating as much because I was full from drinking. I wasn’t being good to my body.’
In February 2019 after overindulging at the Oscars, Teigen tweeted in the wee hours of the morning:
‘Oh my god I feel like absolute s**t. I hereby go sober for at least the week. Booze is poison.’
A history of alcohol abuse in her family, she said having ‘just ‘one drink’ was hard for her. ‘I don’t know how to go to an awards show and not drink,’ she said at the time.

In an August 22 Instagram post she reflected on her days living in NYC with Legend and referred to herself as a ‘functioning alcoholic’ at the time.
‘I’d sit there with my multiple double vodka sodas and get day drunk by myself (this is not a brag lol I was basically a functioning alcoholic),’ her caption read in excerpt.
Teigen continued to speak on her September miscarriage and confessed that she had turned to alcohol at one point to numb the pain away.
‘I don’t really feel like I fully processed jack and now that I don’t have the alcohol to numb it away, things are just…there, waiting to be acknowledged,’ she shared.
She had spoken about the heartbreak of knowing she’d never be pregnant again and continues to heal with the help of horseback riding for therapy, grief counseling and cooking.
Non-alcoholic: On September 1, just ahead of her 50 day mark she shared a photo of herself sipping a non-alcoholic beverage in a wine glass
