Jessica Simpson is celebrating four years of sobriety by posting a photo from her drunken days.
The singer and entrepreneur set the milestone via Instagram on Monday with a snapshot of herself looking bloated and unrecognizable.
“This person in the early morning of November 1, 2017 is an unrecognizable version of myself,” she captioned the shot. “I had a lot of self-discovery to unlock and explore.
“I knew that at this very moment it would allow me to regain my light, show victory over my inner battle of self-respect, and challenge this world with piercing clarity.”
The dukes of hazzard star reveals she stopped drinking because she was always “exhausted”.
“I wanted to feel the pain so I could wear it as a badge of honor,” he shared. “I wanted to live like a leader does and break the cycles to move forward, never looking back with regret and remorse for whatever choice I have made and what I would make for the rest of my time here within this beautiful world.
“Drinking was not the problem. I was … The real work I had to do in my life was to accept failure, pain, brokenness, and self-sabotage … I didn’t love myself. I didn’t respect my own power. Today I do. I have been good with fear and have accepted the parts of my life that are just sad. I own my personal power with moving courage. I am tremendously honest and comfortably open. I am free.”
