Zahara's 5 months of sobriety: I finished a bottle of wine by myself and knew I needed help

After several struggles and feeling like she was stuck in a black hole, Zahara says she turned to alcohol to help her find happiness, but after prayer and support she has not touched a bottle in five months.

Zahara said she had been struggling with certain people in the industry who she felt took advantage of her, and it sent her into a dark space.

"It was not a nice place to be in. I was frustrated and so I drank a little to find happiness. It wasn't that I needed it or that I was addicted. But I got to a point where one night I finished a whole bottle of wine by myself. I knew then that I needed to speak to someone and deal with this."

She said she went home to be with her mother and sisters, who fasted and prayed for her.
 

"It really helped. I was able to get clarity and now I am sober since October. I haven't touched alcohol since and I don't miss it because I don't think it was a problem for me before."

Zahara said she has constantly been portrayed in the media as a drunk and she wants to prove to people that she is not.

"I want to show people that those stories weren't true and that there was never a problem."

She said she decided to speak about her emotional struggles because she didn't want to pretend that her life was rosy while secretly she was dying inside.
