Simpson unveiled an “unrecognizable” photo of herself in November 2021 to celebrate her four-year sobriety and share with her fans the time she knew she had to change her lifestyle.
“Personally, to do this I needed to stop drinking alcohol because it kept my mind and heart circling in the same direction and quite honestly I was exhausted,” she added. “I wanted to feel the pain so I could carry it like a badge of honor.”
Simpson continued, “I wanted to live as a leader does and break cycles to advance forward- never looking back with regret and remorse over any choice I have made and would make for the rest of my time here within this beautiful world.”
Speaking about the stigma surrounding alcoholism, she told her followers she had accepted the parts of her life she felt sad about and decided to become more open about her issues.
