Lily Allen Drank So Much She Could Taste The Difference Between Water & Vodka
"I'd never really been a drinker before. I'd always been a drug taker, and the drinking was an accessory to doing drugs. I realised, 'Oh, fuck, I haven’t taken any drugs for ages, but I’m drinking a lot'. I was drinking a bottle of Grey Goose a day. It was really bad." HUGE @recoveryinc shoutout to Lilly Allen. He is a true star of sobriety.

Lilly Allen 🇬🇧
English singer, songwriter, and author.
Lilly Allen mentioned that alcohol had become a way of self-medicating, when other aspects of her life weren't going to plan, such as her marriage. I totally can relate to that myself. If it where not for for the drugs I probably would have blown my brains out years ago. I was self medicating back then cause I couldn’t deal with life. Thank God I made it out of that and Thank God Lillys cute self did as well.
@lilyallen has never shied away from speaking about using drink and drugs during difficult periods, most recently documenting her struggles on her fourth studio album No Shame and in her frank autobiography My Thoughts Exactly – both released in 2018.
She said one of her lowest points came during her Sheezus tour in 2014, where she would drink vodka with only a splash of tonic so often that she couldn’t taste the difference between her own beverage and her drummer’s glass of water.
Speaking to GQ in 2018, she explained: “I never really had been a drinker before. I always had been a drug taker, and the drinking was an accessory to doing drugs.
“I realized, ‘Oh, f**k, I haven’t taken any drugs for ages, but I’m drinking a lot.’ It had become that bad.”
