LuAnn DeLesseps The Real Housewives of New York - RHONY

Luann de Lesseps Admits that She is Still Tempted to Drink!

Housewives and wine go together like PB&J so when RHONY’s Luann de Lessep’s was forced to stop, it wasn’t exactly an easy transition.

On Wednesday’s episode of RHONY,Lu admitted that the temptation was still there, especially when she was around others who were drinking:

“It doesn’t bother me, it’s just more tempting,” de Lesseps admitted. Lu added that going out to eat in restaurants was “the hardest thing.”

Lu was honest, admitting that the struggle was real saying: “It’s not easy to give up drinking because it’s such a mental thing you’ve learned for so long. It’s like brushing your teeth. So it’s not the anxiety of not drinking — it’s the habit of not drinking that you’re getting rid of.”

Lu recently celebrated being six months sober in an Instagram post, proving her hard work was paying off:

In case you forgot what prompted this whole ‘sober living’ thing, Lu had a very public, embarrassing arrest that was caught on camera. A drunken Luann threat to kill police, resisted arrest and even escaped her handcuffs. After being horrified about her actions, Lu decided to move towards a life of clean living:

Lu has joked that not drinking has forced her to find some new hobbies as she has so much extra time on her hands saying:

“Not drinking is exhausting. You’re up early! … So by 10 p.m. hits, I’m wiped out.”

Stay strong Lu!
