Ari Lennox Shines Bright: Embracing 7 Months of Sobriety 

July 27, 2023 | By Kali Girl

According to PEOPLE, R&B sensation Ari Lennox marks seven months of sobriety with a heartfelt Instagram post, where the 32-year-old opened up about her transformative journey.

“7 months sober. That’s a lot of sober flights. A lot of sober conversations. A lot of facing things raw and head on,” Lennox reflected in her caption. “Honestly I don’t know what will happen when I reach a year sober.”

“Don’t know if sobriety is forever or not but I can’t imagine going back to how things were,” Lennox noted, as she recalled “bad” instances of “passing out in the airport or having my emotions more heightened than needed.”

Now that she has abstained from alcohol, Lennox wrote that she feels “more in control of my emotions. More stable. More happy. More alert. More safe. More accepting of things I can’t control and more responsible with things I can.”

Lennox added, “I like waking up with no hangover or embarrassment. I like waking up with no night terrors and panic attacks from liquor.”

“I’m so raw feeling everything in this world and my coping mechanisms are only healthier now,” the musician shared. “It’s nice to remember events as they are happening. It’s nice to be present. Sobriety is a very present experience.”

Fellow artists extended their heartfelt congratulations to Lennox for this significant milestone.

“Congratulations Ari!!! Ur the coolest around 🥹🤍,” SZA wrote. “Super happy for you!! I feel the freedom in reading your words to us!!! 🤍💫,” Michelle Williams added, while Chloe Bailey wrote, “Love you and so proud of you!!!”
