The Model Prioritized ‘Her Brain and Mind’ by Moving Away from Alcohol
Hadid talked about why she decided to leave alcohol in an interview in August 2022. She said, “Over the years, I’ve always found myself reverting to alcohol when I feel low energy, or my anxieties start to come up. I’ve really scaled back my alcohol consumption this year and have made brain care my ultimate priority.”
At the time, she was still in the process of completely getting rid of her drinking habit. “Moderation is everything for me. While I rarely get ‘drunk’ anymore, I’ve completely stopped drinking hard alcohol… I have learned what my body can and can’t handle. I’m a ‘glass of Champagne and head home’ kind of girl,” she revealed.
‘It Got Harder for Me to Go Out Without Having One Drink,’ Says Hadid
The supermodel doubled down on her decision to go sober in another interview at the beginning of the year. Talking about how she struggled with alcoholism, Hadid said, “I have done my fair share of drinking. 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.”
“My social anxiety was something that slowly crept up on me as I grew into my twenties. It got harder for me to go out without having one drink to calm my nerves, which made me not want to go out at all so I was just hibernating between jobs,” she added.
“With a life that is constantly pushing a social regime, along with working 13 hour days, every single day, I knew this wasn’t a sustainable life for me,” Hadid explained, adding that she now relies on non-alcoholic beverages to calm down her anxiety.
