Cheryl Burke Opens Up About Struggling With Sobriety
Cheryl Burke has opened up about her sobriety journey and admits that she has been struggling recently with staying sober.
In a new YouTube video, the Dancing With The Stars pro reveals that she’s been thinking about drinking again, despite being sober for almost three years.
Burke tells fans in a vulnerable confession:
“I’m here to confess that lately staying sober has been a little bit of a challenge for me. And recently I’ve been thinking a lot, I have to admit, about drinking again.”
“So, I decided to hold myself accountable by confessing my anxious feelings.”
When deciding to become sober, she shares that she never went to a rehabilitation centre but rather “basically quit cold turkey, but to say I’ve never looked back would be a lie.”
It appears that a number of “triggers” in her life have made it harder for her to stay sober including something that Burke says is “bothering me that I don’t necessarily want to feel or face.”
The star has been previously open about her struggles.
“I am really committed to staying sober, and I know the first thing to do when you have those anxious feelings is to be able to talk about it,” she concluded. “Some days can be harder than others. I know that my feelings are completely normal, so I’m trying not to feel shame or judge myself, but it’s hard.”
