Bachelor alum Chad Johnson is changing his life for the better. Chad got a bad reputation as the villain during Bachelor in Paradise. Many still loved him and some were not impressed with his behavior. However, that’s all in the past. Get ready for the new, improved sober Chad.

Chad gets sober

The reality star went to Instagram to share his story, as well as, address his haters. Chad shared an attractive photo of himself looking somber and sober. He had a long caption to accompany the picture.

He started out saying he is 35 days sober. Chad goes on saying, “Now maybe my story isn’t typical but I’m not sure. It’s not like I drank everyday or had an issue every single time that I drank. But every problem I’ve ever had in my life was caused by drinking.” He continued on saying he would go a few weeks without drinking then get confident in thinking he could control his drinking. Chad would then get so confident he could handle it that he would drink more and more each time.

He admits many of his problems have been caused by drinking

In his long heartfelt post, Chad continued on saying, “Within a few times of drinking I’d end up having a 2-3 day bender that I convinced myself was okay, until I hated myself at the end of it. And when you don’t necessarily have to be anywhere or do anything because everything is on your own time, it was always easy to convince myself that continuing the party for a couple more days would be alright.”

He says he would feel horrible for about a week, reset, get back into working out and staying in shape for a week or two then he would repeat the process all over again.

Today I’m 35 days sober. Now maybe my story isn’t typical but I’m not sure. It’s not like I drank everyday or had an issue every single time that I drank. But every problem I’ve ever had in my life was caused by drinking. I would go a couple weeks without drinking and then slowly get confident in my ability to drink until I slowly started drinking more and more each time. Within a few times of drinking I’d end up having a 2-3 day bender that I convinced myself was okay, until I hated myself at the end of it. And when you don’t necessarily have to be anywhere or do anything because everything is on your own time, it was always easy to convince myself that continuing the party for a couple more days would be alright. I’d end up feeling horrible for a week, reset after that, get back in shape for a week or two, and do it all over again. Not only was the issue with myself, but also other people and let me explain…. I’ve had people threaten to send videos to TMZ of me drunk, I’ve had people make up stuff that they say happened when I was drunk that I know didn’t happen, I’ve had people act and treat me in ways that they would never have done it I were sober. So not only does me not drinking anymore remove all of the problems in my life that I created for myself, but also this is a big fuck you to everyone that wanted to screw me over when I drank. Not only am I in the best shape of my life now but I look younger than I did 3 years ago. I’m healthy, happy, and to everyone that tried to pull one over on me back when I drank, FUCK YOU, I’m always in control now.
