Pooja Bhatt has been vocal about her alcoholism phase and how she got out of the addiction. Today, as she completes three years and nine months of being sober, Pooja took to her Instagram handle and shared a heartfelt note.
“Three yrs & nine months sober today. One more quarter and I will be four. As someone who drank openly, I chose to recover openly. I truly felt it was important to share my journey to tell others, women especially, who might be struggling that they are not alone & if I could do it so could they. Was ridiculed by some but lauded for being courageous by most,” she wrote.
This is not the first time the actress has spoken about her addiction. She has spoken about it regularly in the past several years as she battled it. Back in 2017, speaking about it, she said, “I stopped drinking by first acknowledging that I had a drinking problem. Because you are a woman and you live in a society where they are always taught or forced to brush things under the carpet. We tend to bury this shameful habit that we have of covering it up and say, 'Oh, we don't have a problem, it is somebody else's and I am not that drunk'."
