It seems Chrissy Teigen is at a turning point. In a recent interview, the 31-year-old model and host of Lip Sync Battle revealed she is cutting out alcohol (or at least cutting back on it) in order to improve her confidence and health. Teigen intimated that alcohol was at the root of embarrassing moments from her past, and now she is ready to close that chapter. She elaborated, saying,

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend often take vacations that give us travel goals, so it says a lot that Teigen felt like her trip abroad was wonderful without alcohol. In movies, we often see people having a fabulous time in a posh place while sipping on a fancy drink. However, for someone who wants to cut back, it can be tough to go to locations like Bali, where opportunities to drink are around the corner. So, kudos to Teigen for trying the dry vacation and finding out sobriety works for her.
