Bella Hadid is joining the ranks of sober celebs—and she's being refreshingly candid about her experiences with alcohol and why she decided to stop drinking.

For context, Bella's journey to sobriety is tied to her work with non-alcoholic beverage brand Kin Euphorics. According to the company's website, Kin "transforms the world’s oldest social ritual, drinking, into a thoughtful act of taking better care of ourselves" and is "a daily braincare ritual designed to help you connect to your center and find better balance."

In a new interview with InStyle to promote Kin, Bella opened up about her relationship with alcohol—and her story makes it very clear why she wanted to be involved with the company. According to InStyle, Bella first tried Kin in 2019 during a "low point" when she was struggling with anxiety and burnout from her grueling work schedule and side effects from her Lyme disease. All of that stress, along with brain scans and some real talk from her doctor (who also serves as one of the company's medical advisors), made it "a lot harder to pick up the glass."

"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," Bella said of her relationship with alcohol at the time.

Bella actually gave up drinking six months ago and doesn't seem to miss alcohol at all, TBH.

"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," she explained. "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?"
