In a candid Instagram post, Gordon Ramsay’s daughter Holly, 21, celebrates a year of sobriety.

In a recent Instagram post, Holly Ramsay celebrated a year of sobriety.

On Tuesday, the 21-year-old daughter of Michelin-starred chef Gordon shared the personal milestone with her 280,000 Twitter followers in the form of a typed message.

Holly opened up about her struggles with alcohol, including her decision to go tee-total last year after reaching her ‘lowest point’.

Holly revealed in May that she spent three months in a mental health facility after being sexually assaulted twice as a teenager.

PTSD, anxiety, and depression were all diagnosed in her.

Alcohol and antidepressants ‘do not mix well at all,’ according to the podcast host.

‘Today marks one year without alcohol,’ Holly wrote in full.

‘At the age of 21, I never expected to say something like this.’

However, I never expected to have experienced half of what I have by the age of 21 (nearly 22).

‘I chose to abstain from alcohol because it wasn’t improving my mental health, which is the most important thing to me.’

Holly went on to say that it wasn’t a decision she made ‘on the spur of the moment,’ and that it wasn’t one she would make ‘forever.’

‘I was at my lowest and most afraid this time last year, but I made the decision to take control of what I could, which meant eliminating alcohol from my life.’

‘It was not an easy decision for me to make, and it was not one that I took lightly.’

I won’t say this is permanent, but it is for the time being.

Living a life free of alcohol has made me feel better and more present in both my mind and body.

‘Don’t get me wrong: I’ve had a year of highs and lows, but I’m grateful I have the opportunity to work through them consciously rather than masking my feelings (both good and bad) with alcohol.’

‘Alcohol and antidepressants don’t get along.’

‘Unfortunately, I learned that lesson the hard way,’ she admitted.

‘As with everything I’ve gone through, it’s been a learning experience, and I feel fortunate to be able to post this message today, to continue to spread awareness and break the stigma surrounding mental health,’ the fashion design student concluded her message.

Among those who flocked to the comments was her father.

‘@hollyramsayy what an incredible young lady and words can’t describe how proud you make me feel love you so much Dad,’ a adoring Gordon wrote.

Others joined in with their words of encouragement, including Emily Clarkson,…
