Pooja Bhatt never refrains from talking openly about battling alcoholism. Recently, the actress completed 3 years and 9 months of sobriety. She took to her social media handle to pen a note. Pooja stated that she will continue to speak about it to help others start their own journey of sobriety.

The post was captioned as, ''Three yrs & nine months sober today. One more quarter and I will be four 🎂🥳 As someone who drank openly,I chose to recover openly.I truly felt it was important to share my journey to tell others,women especially, who might be struggling that they are not alone & if I could do it so could they. Was ridiculed by some but lauded for being courageous by most. I wondered why people termed speaking openly about addiction issues courageous. And also why there is an ‘anonymous’ attached to groups that help you recover. I understand more than ever today that it’s because people simplify/stigmatise addictive behaviour & tend to criminalise it without attempting to understand why someone used a substance to begin with.''


She further added, ''Alcohol is a drug,and was my drug of choice.Just because it is socially acceptable does not mean it is not. I have had to make more excuses for NOT drinking in the last few yrs than I ever have for drinking-to friends,foes and ‘well’ meaning acquaintances alike. A fractured society can only heal & evolve when we attempt to ‘understand’ instead of constantly standing in judgement. When we empathise instead of vilify. Until then and even beyond, I will continue to speak from a place of compassion & truth,in the hope that there is ONE person out there I could goad to start on their own journey of sobriety and stay on their path. So help me God! 🙏❤️❤️ #sobrietyrocks #eachonereachone #eachonehealone #onedayatatime #onestepatatime👣 #youarenotalone''

The actress recently made a comeback on the big screen with the sequel of her 1991 film.
