Alice Cooper guitarist Nita Strauss, also known for her great solo career, has just updated her official social media to mention her sober life and showed her great body through it.
Recently, Nita Strauss, 33, updated her Instagram account with a new letter about her sober life and revealed her pride in the issue. She said that she is sober for 5 years. Nita also touched how sober things affected her life and career.
To mention her sober life, Nita Strauss posted a perfect photo of herself. In the photo, Nita, known for her admirations for the bodybuilding and fitness, was posing on her back. Her curves were appearing hotly while wearing skin-tight pants.
Speaking about post-alcohol life, Nita Strauss remembered fans’ reactions to her performance and said that people loved it by saying that she added so much to Alice Cooper and his crew on stage. She also said that she was satisfied with her current life and added that there is no reason to back her old life.
In the letter, Nita wrote:
“5 years… If you would have asked anyone who knew me before if someday I’d be celebrating 5 years of sobriety, they would have laughed (and maybe spilled a drink on you in the process.)
I thought I needed a drink for just about everything. To be confident on stage. To be social after shows. To celebrate. To mourn. To take the edge off frustration or the sting out of a bad day. To relax and laugh at lunch with girlfriends, or watch football with the guys on Sundays.
I was terrified that my life was going to change, that without alcohol I wouldn’t be ME anymore, that I would lose my circle of friends, and my onstage charisma, and become someone else.
ALL those things happened… but not in the way I thought they would.
Change came first in my relationship, in the form of less fighting and drama, and more productivity, peace and love. Thank you @thejoshv for being the catalyst to the best thing I ever did for myself. I love you.
The ME that I was before would have stayed up until 6 am at the bar or in the bus front lounge. The ME that I became would rather get up at 6 and get to the gym before starting the day.
My busy circle of friends was almost immediately reduced to a core 3. I’ve learned that when it comes to friendships, quality is ALWAYS better than quantity. If your friends have no interest in spending time with you after you make a change for the better, they weren’t your real friends.
My first show without alcohol was in front of 15,000 people. I felt like a scarecrow someone had propped up on stage to scare birds. Nothing felt natural. I was going through the motions, with this absurd idea running through my head ‘everyone is looking at me. Everyone knows.’
I went out by the bus to talk to fans afterward, and do you know what they said? ‘Wow you were so great! Where do you get all that energy? You add so much to Alice’s band!’
ALL of that insecurity, ALL the fears, ALL the doubt was in my head. Those are your demons that make you think you need them.
I’m content to sit at the bar, order a soda water with lime and watch the game now. I wouldn’t trade back to my old life for anything.”
In the comments, Nita‘s close circle and rock & roll artists congratulated her because of her success. While Megadeth man David Ellefson writes, “There’s only one thing we have to change….and that’s Everything. One day at a time, congrats on 5,” Lacuna Coil’s Cristina Scabbia wrote, “I am so proud of you, gorgeous warrior!”
