Jessica Simpson recently celebrated a huge milestone in her life: six years of sobriety. As she prepares for her return to music, she takes a moment to reflect on her journey by sharing an old photo of herself that she now considers “unrecognizable.” In 2017, Jessica Simpson originally posted the photo on her Instagram account, describing it as the “very moment” she made the decision to reclaim her light and overcome her internal battle of self-respect.
Jessica Simpson also recognized that alcohol had been keeping her mind and heart trapped in a never-ending cycle, leaving her feeling exhausted.
Determined to break free from this destructive pattern, she resolved to confront her pain head-on and carry it as a badge of honor. Jessica Simpson aspired to live as a leader, forging ahead without dwelling on regret or remorse and fully embracing the beauty of the world around her. Addressing the societal stigma surrounding alcoholism, Simpson acknowledged that the issue was not the drinking itself but rather her own relationship with it.
Per reports, Jessica Simpson candidly admitted that she had not respected her own power but has since undergone a remarkable transformation. Today, she stands tall, having confronted her fears and accepted the sadness that exists in certain aspects of life. With soulful courage, she now embraces her personal power, living with honesty, openness, and freedom. In her 2020 memoir, “Open Book,” Simpson delved deep into her struggles with drug and alcohol addiction.
In the memoir, she shared a pivotal moment, her rock bottom, which occurred on Halloween in 2017. Waking up and indulging in her first drink at 7 a.m., she eventually became too intoxicated to take her children trick-or-treating later that evening. Reflecting on that night, Simpson expressed her shame at not even knowing who had helped her children get into their costumes.
Since that turning point, Simpson has made it a tradition to commemorate her sobriety anniversary on social media. Last year, she shared a heartfelt video of herself singing along to her song “Party of One” in a recording studio. Through her posts, she aims to convey an essential lesson she has learned over the past five years: that she possesses the strength to overcome any challenge she sets her mind to.
Looking ahead, Simpson has her sights set on spending more time in the studio. In an interview with Bustle, she revealed that she is in talks for a docuseries chronicling the making of her forthcoming full-length studio album. This project signifies a professional reboot for Simpson, and she even hinted at the possibility of relocating from Los Angeles to Nashville with her husband, Eric Johnson.
