“It was something I realized just did not serve me and my life,” Drew said about alcohol while speaking with CBS This Morning on Thursday (December 9).

While she didn’t share much other details about her sobriety, Drew did admit she has “been very private with a lot of my struggles.”

“I wouldn’t be surprised if there is a revolt against the perfection right now that we are all forced to see and feel through social media,” Drew explained. “We’re in an impasse and a crux of a moment where talking about how we figure ourselves out, how we fix ourselves takes a journey and solutions. Most people do it in private.”

During a recent episode of her talk show, The Drew Barrymore Show, Drew reunited in-person with one of her exes for the first time in over 20 years.
