It was during a recent family trip to a wellness retreat in Bali when the 31-year-old model realized she was "point blank, just drinking too much."

"I got used to being in hair and makeup and having a glass of wine. Then that glass of wine would carry over into me having one before the awards show."

"And then a bunch at the awards show. And then I felt bad for making kind of an ass of myself to people that I really respected."

"And that feeling, there's just nothing like that. You feel horrible. It's not a good look for me, for John, for anybody."

"I don't know how to go to an awards show and not drink," said Teigen, who's been a spokesperson for both Captain Morgan and Smirnoff.

The interview also briefly covered the history of alcohol abuse in her family, as Teigen described herself as someone who "can't just have one drink."

But when it came to her excessive drinking, Teigen admitted no one really said anything: "Nobody really brought it up to me. They just assumed that it was OK because I always felt OK the next morning."

"I knew in my heart it wasn't right. It makes you very short with people. People think it's cutesy and fun to go on these boozy brunches, but there's more to it. I've never once been like, I'm sure glad I had that boozy brunch!"

So, it was in Bali that the Lip Sync Battle cohost decided to cut down on alcohol. In fact, during her trip she didn't have one sip.

"It was really, really wonderful. I would wake up feeling amazing. My skin felt amazing. I was just so happy."
