Good Morning Britain host Susanna Reid has revealed how quitting alcohol has transformed her skin and improved her well-being. In an interview with The Sunday Times Magazine, the 47-year-old opened up about being sober for seven months. She said: “Seven months on my skin isn’t perfect but it’s clearer. And so is my head. I am sleeping better.” The mum-of-three continued: “I don’t have hangxiety. I don’t miss for a minute that feeling of fizzing in your body in the morning, which meant I couldn’t quiet relax the day after a big night.” Susanna first started her sobriety journey in September after a doctor’s health warning about weight gain. However, there have been a couple of slip ups, as she admitted: “I haven’t been entirely dry…there are times you fall back into it.”
Piers Morgan, who co-hosts GMB with Susanna, apparently doesn’t understand the alcohol ban. In the same interview, she added: “Piers Morgan thinks I’ve become the world’s biggest bore since I no longer want to stay up into the small hours fuelled by shots.”
Last December, the presenter said that she had shed one-and-a-half stone over a few months largely due to giving up alcohol. “It’s more than 100 days since I last touched alcohol and I feel clearer, sharper, and more energetic than ever,” Susanna told Daily Express. “It’s certainly helped me – not least because I have to get up so early and it doesn’t help when you feel as if you are in a constant state of jet lag.”
