Holly Ramsay thanked friends and family for their ‘endless love’ and support amid revelations she was two years alcohol-free on Wednesday.
Daughter to celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay, the 22-year-old marked her milestone in a post on Instagram that paid special tribute to her loved ones.
In the short message to her 315,000 followers, she admitted alcohol and her former lifestyle had driven her to hit ‘rock bottom’ before she made the decision to give it up.
Holly penned against a white background: ‘Today marks two years since I last had alcohol. Two years ago today I hit rock bottom, I was terrified.
‘I certainly didn’t think I would be where I am today both physically and mentally. I’ve fought every day since to get where I am today.
‘I am so grateful to so many people for their support, encouragement and endless love. I will continue to learn and grow every day. I feel lucky to be able to use my voice to raise awareness and break the stigma around mental health.
‘Sending love to anyone who needs it today and always. One day at a time.’
She signed off the post with: ‘Love H x’.
The famous offspring has spoken about her sobriety in the past and addressed the difficulties of being sober at a young age during an Instagram Q&A session in January.
Holly answered the question ‘how important is it to cut out alcohol when you struggle daily with mental health,’ by admitting ‘This isn’t a “one size fits all” answer…
‘For me, cutting out alcohol has made me so much more present, I’m able to have more fun & I’m in control. Alcohol + antidepressants don’t mix well. I made the decision to put my physical and mental health first.’
She continued on: ‘It can be lonely not drinking especially at this age as it’s such a big part of our social lives.. but you will find the right people who don’t even care that you’re not drinking and are just happy you’re with them.’
In other nods to her decision to go teetotal, the influencer marked her one-year anniversary of a booze-free lifestyle in a similar post last year.
Holly wrote: ‘Today marks one year without alcohol. This is not something I thought I would ever say at the age of 21. However, by 21 (nearly 22) I never thought I would’ve been through half of what I have.
‘I choose to take a break from alcohol because it wasn’t improving my mental health – which for me, comes first.’
