Whilst Chrissie says she knew she didn't have a "massive, long-standing problem" with alcohol, she did become uncomfortable with how much she drank without realising through the pandemic.
"I don’t miss drinking one bit and now I never even think about it. I am proud of myself as well - which is a sparkling and meaningful thing," she shared.
"In truth - every aspect of my life, energy, positivity, and relationships have become so much better in every way since that day.
This isn't the first time Chrissie has spoken candidly about her decision to live a sober life, her first time being an appearance on The Project in October 2021.
“I really am reticent to be the poster girl for sobriety because it was a decision I made for myself after giving it a fair nudge in the first lockdown last year,” she told the panel at the time.
“I do recommend it. If you’re thinking, ‘Oh, maybe I’m drinking a bit much’ or ‘it’s not helping me anymore’, I think that’s the biggest thing I’ve taken from it, is that it didn’t help.”
Chrissie also revealed that giving the bottle the flick had done wonders for her mental health, particularly in such a turbulent time given the ongoing lockdowns in her home city of Melbourne.
“With the pressures and anxieties and worries and being responsible for kids and their whole life has changed and you’re their parent, you feel enormous guilt, though it’s all out of your control, you kind of feel like having a few drinks will take the edge off and a couple of drinks does but eventually it’s at the stage where it doesn’t help and it certainly wasn’t helping me,” Chrissie explained.
