In a recent interview with Glamour, Megan Fox opens up about being sober for the past ten years and how it has affected her lifestyle.
“I’m always completely sober,” she tells the publication. “I don’t even drink a glass of wine. I don’t ever smoke. I don’t drink coffee. I’m super strict with my diet and I never deviate.”
And, she says it all comes down to how it makes her feel. “I’m not saying you have to be like that. I’m saying for me, that’s how I feel the best. When I was in Costa Rica, somebody described the purpose of alcohol with plant medicine: you use alcohol to extract the essence of a plant. And I thought, ‘That is exactly how alcohol makes me feel. As though it is extracting my essence.’”
Outside of staying sober, Fox practices self care by connecting to her “super consciousness” and connecting to her spirit. “And this lifestyle makes it very difficult sometimes,” she adds. “I do feel very lost when I’m not able to do that, so I have to have time to ground myself. And that is being able to do the metaphysical things that I like to do, the spiritual things that I like to do and having silence. I avoid my phone as much as I possibly can all the time, but there are times where I avoid it completely. The same thing with anything that has an LED light in it. And I just go back to what our bodies were made for, which is to be in nature and to be silent within ourselves.”
