Breaking News – Nude blogger shares battle with alcohol and journey sober


Nude blogger, Jessa O’Brien, has spoken out about her former battle with alcohol – which saw the 28-year-old consume a ‘bottle of tequila to myself as pre drinks’ – before she finally became fully sober.The Gold Coast-based Instagram star and body positive ambassador took to her Instagram page to celebrate being ‘sober’ for ‘almost two years’ this week.Here, Jessa speaks to FEMAIL about her ‘binge drinking problem’, and how she got over it.She also shares her tips for those wanting to embrace sobriety for themselves.In her latest post, the 28-year-old touched on the fact that, while she wasn’t a ‘raging alcoholic’, ‘like many of us, I loved a good drink… probably in a little more excess than many others around me’.Jessa then highlighted to FEMAIL that it was ‘definitely a binge drinking problem’:’A bottle of tequila to myself as pre drinks at time. Drinking it from the bottle while others had a beer or wine,’ she explained.’Bacardi 151 was my spirit of choice for a long time, because it was 77 per cent alcohol. I was always into the stuff that intoxicated.’I was that person with a crazy tolerance for alcohol that meant people didn’t want to drink with me – because I could always manage more.’I would never drink anything mixed. A 750ml bottle of tequila sipped and then shots while out dancing. I wasn’t drinking every day, mainly each weekend.’But I’d wake up on Sundays in a hungover fog and need another few drinks to level myself out.’Jessa explained that there came a moment when she realised she’d had enough – and coincidentally it arrived after she finished seven months of backpacking:’As cliched as it sounds, I had this hugely spiritual experience – this life-changing journey of self discovery,’ she said.’Then, when I got home I was a changed person – I felt awkward going to social events with people who expected me to be drinking lots.’While I’ve had some of my most memorable moments while drunk and created so many fond memories that I will forever treasure, the relationship had become toxic.And so, she decided to change. Resolving that her ‘connections would come from a depth of authenticity rather than a blurry haze’, and deciding her ‘social life would revolve around something more than alcohol’, Jessa gave alcohol up ‘cold turkey’ in 2016 – and hasn’t looked back since.’Since giving it up, I have realised just how engrained it is in our culture,’ she said. ‘Just how addictive the thought of a drink is. Just how low-vibrational it can be.’Speaking to FEMAIL, Jessa admitted that while it has been a ‘struggle’ at times, she has discovered ‘alternative ways to socialise’:’At the beginning it was difficult because I’d always been a party girl and I no longer had the patience to drink water while others drank alcohol,’ she said.’But soon I found a way to socialise with others that didn’t come through booze – long coastal walks, yoga, going for a juice or a coffee.’And Jessa added that her life has become so much better and so much clearer now
