Lara recently confessed to Interview magazine that she nipped her nasty habits in the bum before letting herself spiral too far out of control.
Says the newly engaged model:
"The drinking was getting way out of control. I just didn't recognise myself any more. I didn't know what I was doing or where I was. I always had to have some drinks with me in my bag. Just waking up shaking and then having Bloody Marys on your own, first thing in the morning - I started to feel really pathetic about it. So I was like, 'I can't live like this.' It was just this really awful feeling of becoming a totally different person and not being able to control it at all. Then I tried to not drink, but that didn't work. So I figured I should just go to rehab."
And she did!
Even though Lara can proudly say she's been sober for 10 months, she recalls how violent she got while pAArtying it up:
"I used to love slapping people in the face when I was drunk. I thought it was really funny, so I did pick fights with doormen and bouncers. Ex boyfriends. But nobody ever punched me back."
Lets leave the punching and fighting to Naomi Campbell, 'k?
