The 31-year-old supermodel and actress said of her experience, “I got drunk that day, I was 8. What a crazy age to get drunk.”

Moreover, she noted her struggles with fame and the anxiety and public scrutiny made her substance abuse issues get out of hand.

“I used to think drugs and alcohol helped me cope,” she revealed. “But they didn’t. They kept me sad and super depressed.”

The superstar who is now enjoying a much healthier and sober life revealed how she managed to get to this positive stage of her life.

Delevingne explained, “I feel like I’ve got my power back and I’m not being controlled by other things… I finally feel as though I can be free.”

“I like AA meetings, I go to them when I can. Some people would say I don’t go to them enough,” she continues. “But I’m doing it my way and it’s working for me. Everyone’s different. You can go in a million times and it doesn’t work. Some people go in once and walk out. Some do it who don’t need it.”

This isn’t the first time she opened up about her addiction struggles and sobriety journey. Previously in an interview with in Vogue’s April 2023 issue Delevingne revealed she made the decision of avoiding substances after reaching a turning point in September 2022.

At that time she got in headlines after being photographed shoeless at a Los Angeles airport.
