Gordon Ramsay’s Daughter Celebrates Sobriety

Gordon Ramsay’s daughter, Holly, has revealed her secret battle with alcohol as she took to Instagram to celebrate one year of sobriety.

“Today marks one year without alcohol,” she began.

“That 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.”

Earlier this year, she opened up about being diagnosed with PTSD, anxiety, and depression after being sexual assaulted twice when she was 18.

“I chose to take a break from alcohol because it wasn’t improving my mental health – which for me, comes first,” she explained.

She spent three months in a mental health hospital and now has up to three therapy sessions a week.

“This time last year I was at my lowest and I was scared but I made a decision to take control of what I could – and that meant removing alcohol from my life. I won’t say that this is forever, but this is for now.”

“Living without alcohol has helped me feel better & more present both mentally and physically. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had a year of high highs and low lows but I’m grateful I gave myself the chance to work though them consciously rather than mask my feelings (good or bad) with a drink,” she shared.

She reflected on her past hardships to celebrate the progress of her personal milestone marks.

“Alcohol and antidepressants do not mix well at all. And that is something, unfortunately, I learned the hard way.”

“As with everything I have been through, it has been a learning experience and I feel lucky to be able to post this message today, to continue to spread awareness and break the stigma surrounding mental health,” she concluded.

Her celebrity chef father, Gordon, commented on the post to show his support, writing: “What an incredible young lady and words can’t explain enough how proud you make me feel, love you so much, dad.”

Holly also has her own podcast, 21 & Over with Holly Ramsay, “for those who struggle with anxiety, self-doubt, mental health and creating identities in today’s world.”
