Cara Delevingne has opened up about her sobriety journey, saying it’s “been worth every second” to ditch the booze.
In an interview with Elle UK, the supermodel shared that quitting alcohol has made her “stable” and “calmer.”
“It hasn’t [been easy], but there have never been moments when I’m like, ‘This isn’t worth it,’” she told the magazine. “It’s been worth every second. I just don’t know what it would take for me to give it up. I am stable. I’m calmer.”
The model admitted that speaking out about her struggles lifted a huge weight off her shoulders.
“For a long time, I felt like I was hiding a lot from people who looked up to me. I finally feel as though I can be free and myself, fully,” she added.
The 30-year-old opened up to Vogue in April about her substance abuse issues and new sobriety journey.
Admitting that being on drugs made her feel “invincible,” the model said her behavior became “feral.”
“It’s a scary thing to the people around you who love you,” she said at the time. “At that point, there was a lot of people who were very worried, understandably so.”
“I wasn’t really worried … but that is the nature of the disease,” she added.
After seeing images of herself, the star realized she would either “end up dead” or doing something “really, really stupid” if she didn’t seek treatment.

Since then, Delevingne has been forging a new path of sobriety for herself.
As part of her “new beginnings,” she revealed that she’s bidding farewell her tattoos.
She told the outlet that when she started modeling at a young age, “you couldn’t get tattoos because it was part of your modeling contract, and they kind of owned your body,” so she tattooed a lion’s head on her finger in an act of rebellion — and then went on to add more ink.
