Bella Hadid appeared in a TikTok video from her recent Las Vegas vacation. She captioned the video, stating, "Five months alcohol free."
Bella disclosed that she will no longer drink alcohol for a specified period of time in a January 2022 interview. She then participated in Dry January in 2022 as a non-alcoholic beverage alternative.
"I don't feel the need [to drink] because I know how it will affect me at 3 in the morning when I wake up with terrible anxiety thinking about that one thing I said five years ago when I graduated high school," Bella explained. "There's just this constant, you know, pain and stress over those few drinks that didn't really do anything."
Bella admitted to drinking "quite a lot." She said, "I loved alcohol and it got to the point where even I started to, you know, cancel nights out that I wasn't able to control myself." She said that once she saw scans that showed the effects of alcohol on the brain, she began to drink less.
Bella has been open about her mental health issues throughout her teen and adult years, including when she didn't drink enough to calm my anxieties. I've always said, "My social anxiety has become a constant struggle as I grew older."
