Victoria’s Secret model, 29, reveals the extraordinary results of giving up alcohol for two years

Former Victoria’s Secret model Bridget Malcolm has revealed the extraordinary benefits of giving up alcohol for two years, detailing how going sober has drastically transformed both her physical and mental health. 

The 29-year-old spoke out about her decision to go alcohol-free during a Q&A posted to her Instagram Stories on Monday, when many of her followers asked what changes she has experienced since ditching booze two years ago.  

‘I’m happier, I’m much more positive, I have way more time in the day, I’m fitter,’ Bridget said, adding that being sober has also enabled her to ‘be healthy’ and ‘eat well’ because the time that she once spent drinking alcohol has now been freed up for more beneficial experiences.

The blonde also noticed other benefits to her appearance, especially her skin.

‘Apart from this giant f**king pimple on my chin, my skin cleared up,’ said the Perth native.

She added: ‘My bodyweight stopped [fluctuating; it] stayed very steady. I sleep well. I concentrate well. I have much more self-confidence. It’s been great.’

While not labelling herself an alcoholic, Bridget admitted she had previously used alcohol ‘to not cope with what I needed to cope with in my life’.

She said she also has a lot more time to reach her ‘goals’ without alcohol. 

Bridget explained she figured ‘if I take out partying [from my life], maybe it’ll get easier to achieve my goals, and it turned out I was right’.

She also said the change to her lifestyle had affected her social life – for the better.

‘I have better friendships with my friends and I love people for who they are and not who I want them to be,’ she revealed. 

In 2019, Bridget claimed she was once rejected from a modelling job after gaining weight by ‘half an inch’.

She claimed at the time she, ‘hadn’t had a period in months, and needed to sleep 12 hours a night in order to function.’

‘I have been rewarded with my highest profile clients when my hips were at their smallest (33 inches),’ she wrote.

‘And when I gained half an inch from that, I lost those clients – being told that my body did not look good enough.’
