Ari Lennox Reflects On Being Seven Months Sober: ‘It’s Nice To Be Present’

Written by on July 26, 2023

R&B singer Ari Lennox is reflecting on seven months of being sober as she sends a loving message to her fans.

This week, the 32-year-old singer took to Instagram to share pictures of herself in a gray tank top and black shorts. Additionally, Lennox explained to her fans that she was officially celebrating seven months of sobriety.

Lennox explained that the milestone marks “a lot of sober conversations” and “a lot of facing things raw and head on.” She also explained that she doesn’t know how she will feel once she reaches a year of sobriety.

Additionally, the singer added that she’s uncertain if she will pursue a lifelong sobriety journey. However, she is enjoying the changes the newfound state brings to her life.

As Lennox continued in her written caption, she explained that she doesn’t “find interest in partying anymore.” Additionally, she shared that maybe she’s “changing and that’s deeper than alcohol.”

From there, Lennox reflected on her not-so-great moments with liquor. She explained that she would previously suffer from “night terrors” and “panic attacks.” However, since becoming sober, she’s developed “healthier” coping mechanisms and feels it’s “nice to remember events as they are happening.”

Lennox then ended her post by explaining that alcohol does help one “escape all the intense stress of the world.” However, the feeling is only temporary.
