Washington: Supermodel Bella Hadid recently opened up about why she quit drinking six months ago. The Victoria’s Secret model, who previously got candid about her mental health in November when she posted photos of herself crying, said that it became “a lot harder to pick up the glass” after her doctor (and medical advisor for her non-alcoholic beverage brand Kin Euphorics) showed her the effects of alcohol on her brain.

People magazine obtained quotes of Bella Hadid from a recent interviewwhere she explained : “I have done my fair share of drinking,” said the 25-year-old model who announced her non-alcoholic beverage brand Kin Euphorics in September. 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 became co-founder and partner of Kin in September after finding that it helped with her anxiety, the brain fog from her Lyme disease, and the burnout from constant work and travel. The alcohol-free, botanical-infused seltzer brand claims to enhance focus and creativity.

“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,” said Bella.

“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?” she told the outlet, as per People magazine.

“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. 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. 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,” she said to millions of her fans.
