Anne Hathaway’s Explanation For Why She Is Quitting Alcohol Is Resonating With Many

Actress Anne Hathaway just shared the moving reason why she decided to quit drinking.

Many of us struggle with addictive tendencies, but Anne recently told Tattler magazine that frequent hangovers started to interfere with caring for her infant son.

She admitted that episodes of day drinking left her feeling “unavailable” for her child, and has since pledged to quit drinking for 18 years.

It takes courage to admit you have a problem, and people are applauding Anne’s newfound commitment.

Here’s a powerful moment from Anne’s comments about addiction and parenting:

My last hangover lasted for five days. I’d earned it: It was a day-drinking session with friends that went into an evening birthday party with one of my drinking buddies. I will never be that person who can nurse a glass of wine throughout an entire evening.

Anne also mentioned her struggles with moderation. She spoke candidly about loving alcohol “so much,” but made a powerful decision in October 2018 and has been sober since.

People on social media totally related with Anne’s candid reflection.

Some debated Anne’s decision to go public with her struggles.

Others questioned Anne’s story about her five-day hangover.

But most recognized the important message for parents that Anne shared.

Some in recovery spoke about their experiences with alcoholism.

When superstars like Anne Hathaway share their stories of struggle and resilience, it reminds us nobody’s perfect—not even the wealthy and famous.

Everyone fights their own personal battle. It’s  refreshing that Anne is brave enough to be transparent about her road to recovery.
