Los Angeles, Aug 22 (IANS) Model Chrissy Teigen realizes there was a point in her life when she was drinking "too much". She is now determined to control herself. "I used to think it was kind of nutty to have to go totally sober," Teigen told Cosmopolitan on Sunday, reports dailymail.co.uk. "But now I get it. I don't want to be that person… I have to fix myself. I was, point blank, just drinking too much. "I got used to being in hair and make-up and having a glass of wine. Then that glass of wine would carry over into me having one before the awards show. And then a bunch at the awards show," she added.
