Cara Delevingne’s revelation: “I started drinking at 8”

She has been sober for two years, but for Dear Delevingne It was not at all easy to free herself from the addiction to alcohol, which had accompanied her since she was a child. The revelation came as a surprise during an interview with Sunday Times, in which the model and actress recalled her first drink, at the age of 8. The occasion, an aunt’s wedding, where she played the role of bridesmaid: “I was eight, a crazy age to get drunk”.

Cara Delevingne: “If I Quit Alcohol, Anyone Can Do It”
The 31-year-old actress has opened up about her detox, aiming to help others who are going through the same thing.

Not a taste, in short, but a real binge, destined to leave its mark. Alcohol and drugs, in fact, by his own admission, have been a constant in his life. “I thought they helped me make it,” he revealed to People a few months ago, ¬ęBut they didn’t, they made me sad and super depressed. I feel like I’ve regained my power and I’m no longer controlled by other things.” The realization that that lifestyle was unhealthy came in 2022, after the Burning Man Festival, when she was photographed while driving to Los Angeles airport; sitting in the back, with her feet out the window, Delevingne didn’t seem herself at all. Photos that went around the world and that, perhaps for the first time, led her to seriously reflect on her condition. “It was a stupid decision to go straight from a festival to work, I should have waited a day. But it would have happened anyway, there were a lot of photos where I looked drunk“, Cara recalled. From there, the choice to turn to Alcoholics Anonymous for support.

“It wasn’t easy, but there were never moments when I thought, ‘It’s not worth it.'” his words to Elle UK in July 2023. “It was worth every second. I just don’t know what it would take for me to give it up.” In 2023, Delevingne followed a twelve-phase detox program, and her plans also include the intention to remove some of the many tattoos she has gotten over the years, to somehow mark the new beginning of her life. A life that has now recovered, and that since she’s sober has also given her serenity from a sentimental point of view.
