Fame and fortune have always held unique caveats for Hollywood stars, whether it be the pressures of audiences, the invasion of privacy, or the stress of never being able to live a "normal" life again. Many resort to substance abuse to take the edge off, but get lost and struggle to find their way back.
Chrissy Teigen has had an unbelievably difficult past year, particularly after losing her baby, which has only made her existing issues with alcohol worsen. But, on September 5 she hit significant milestone for anyone trying to get back on the path: "Today is my 50 day sobriety streak! it should be nearly a year but I had a few (wine) hiccups in the road. this is my longest streak yet!" she wrote on Instagram.
"I still dunno if I’ll never drink again but I do know it no longer serves me in ANY way. I don’t get more fun, I don’t dance, I don’t get relaxed. I get sick, fall asleep and wake up sick, having missed what was probably a fun night. I had my fun with it and appreciate anyone that can enjoy it responsibly!!!!"
There have been many other stars who turned to drugs or alcohol at some point in their lives to help cope, and the road to recovery often isn't linear. Click through this gallery to learn more about some of these famous faces and their battles.
