‘Alcohol and antidepressants don’t mix at all’: Gordon Ramsay’s daughter Holly, 21, marked a year of sobriety in a candid Instagram post on Tuesday

In May, Holly revealed she spent three months in a mental hospital after being sexually assaulted twice when she was 18. She was diagnosed with PTSD, anxiety and depression.

The podcast host also explained that alcohol and antidepressants “don’t mix at all.”

In full, Holly wrote, “Today marks one year without alcohol.

“It’s not something I thought I’d say someday when I was 21. However, at 21 (almost 22), I never thought I would have lived through half of what I have.

“I chose to take a break from alcohol because it didn’t improve my mental health – which for me comes first.”

Holly went on to explain that it was not a “lightly” decision, nor necessarily a “forever” decision.

“At this time last year I was at my lowest and scared, but I made the decision to take control of what I could – and that meant eliminating alcohol from my life.

“It was not an easy decision, nor a decision I took lightly. I won’t say it’s forever, but it’s for now. Living alcohol free has made me feel better and more present both mentally and physically.

Opening: Holly continued to explain it wasn't a decision

Openness: Holly went on to explain that this was not a “lightly” decision, nor necessarily a “forever” decision.

“Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had a year of ups and downs, but I’m grateful that I myself have the chance to consciously overcome them rather than hiding my feelings (good and bad) with a drink.

“Alcohol and antidepressants don’t mix at all. And this is something that I unfortunately learned the hard way, ”she confessed.

The fashion design student concluded her post: “As with everything I’ve been through, it has been a learning experience and I feel lucky to be able to post this post today, to continue to raise awareness and to break down the stigma surrounding mental health. “
