There are tons of celebs who live a sober lifestyle. Whether it be a decision they needed to make, or just never got into drinking, these celebs know the importance of sobriety. In Hollywood, I'm sure it's pretty easy to get wrapped up in the whole 'partying' scene. That's why I'm glad these celebrities choose to not be a part of that. Check out some celebs who live a sober lifestyle.
1 Demi Lovato
Demi definitely had her ups and downs back in 2012-2013. She was in a serious downward spiral and nobody even knew about it. Her family intervened, Demi went into rehab and came out a stronger person; a "warrior" as she likes to call herself. Now, she's all about staying sober. She doesn't even like to go out to parties and surrounding herself with the temptation of it all. She's now all about being healthy and working at it one day at a time. She's just one of the celebs who live a sober lifestyle!
2 Bradley Cooper
Bradley Cooper is a household name. He chose to become sober at the age of 29! He used to have substance abuse problems and he opened up about it earlier this year. He's said, "If I continued it, I was really going to sabotage my whole life." He then went on to say, "I don't drink or do drugs anymore.. Being sober helps a great deal … I remember looking at my life, my apartment, my dogs [when I was still using], and I thought, 'What's happening?'" I'm glad that Bradley is living sober now because he's so talented and I'd hate to see him stop working!
3 Jennifer Hudson
Last year, Hudson made an appearance on talk show, "Chelsea Lately". She told the host, "I've never done anything, so that was hard to play this role [of a heroin addict]. I've never had a drink in my life. I'm sober. I'm like, 'Okay, this is new to me.' Normally as as actor, you have things to pull from. I was like, 'I don't know what it's like to feel any of that."
4 Blake Lively
Blake Lively is nothing like her character, Serena Van Der Woodsen on Gossip Girl! Blake opened up to Allure Magazine about being sober. She said, "I don’t drink. I’ve never tried a drug. It's just something that I genuinely don't have a desire for." You go, Blake!
5 Russell Brand
This eccentric comedian is very outspoken about his recovery from drugs and alcohol! In 2012, he celebrated his tenth anniversary of being sober with the message: "10 years clean today. Thanks for all your messages of love. Anyone can get clean, one day at a time." I'm very impressed with his recovery because he chooses to stay away from temptation!
6 Colin Farrell
Colin is one of my favorite actors. He opened up about his sobriety and said, "I was terrified [of being sober] because, I'm not saying I was a great actor before or a great actor since, but I was terrified that whatever my capacity was as an actor beforehand, however little or large — it would completely disappear." He also said that being sober has helped him be "present" in his life.
7 Kat Von D
Talented tattoo artist, Kat Von D, is another celebrity who lives a sober lifestyle! I love that she can tweet something funny about it. She wrote, "Today, marks my 6th year of sobriety! Yay for not being a drunken a**hole!! :)" Haha, good for you, Kat!
Well, there you have it! This is just seven out of MANY celebrities who live a sober lifestyle. It's great to see some of Hollywood's biggest names choosing to stay away from that lifestyle. Who's your favorite person from the list?
