Chrissy Teigen is known for her sassy attitude and unbridled passion for delicious food and drink. But, the model recently told Cosmopolitan that she came to realize recently that she may have been overindulging in alcohol. She came to that conclusion during a recent trip to a wellness retreat in Bali.

"I was, point blank, just drinking too much," she said. "I got used to being in hair and makeup and having a glass of wine. Then that glass of wine would carry over into me having one before the awards show. And then a bunch at the awards show. And then I felt bad for making kind of an ass of myself to people that I really respected. And that feeling, there's just nothing like that. You feel horrible. It's not a good look for me, for John [Legend], for anybody."

In the interview, Chrissy admits that "I don't know how to go to an awards show and not drink," further revealing that she's some who "can't just have one drink."

The foodie/TV personality further noted in the profile that she always felt deep down inside that drinking wasn't always the right option. "Nobody really brought it up to me. They just assumed that it was OK because I always felt OK the next morning. I knew in my heart it wasn't right," she said. "It makes you very short with people. People think it's cutesy and fun to go on these boozy brunches, but there's more to it. I've never once been like, 'I'm sure glad I had that boozy brunch!'"
