Tiffany Haddish is sober!

The 44-year-old actress and comedian revealed that she's been sober for over two months while appearing as a guest on British journalist Amanda de Cadnet's The Conversation podcast.

"I haven't drank any alcohol, smoked any weed or anything in, like, 72 days," Haddish told the host within the first 10 minutes of their conversation, after Cadnet mentioned that she had a history of addiction.

"It's not hard. It's not that hard for me, 'cause it wasn't really, like, my main thing anyways," the Girls Trip star continued after de Cadnet congratulated her.

Haddish added that she has more trouble eating healthy amounts of meat and candy.

When asked what prompted her to stop consuming alcohol and weed, Haddish said that she is "being obedient to the law."

"It's court-mandated," she continued, referencing her two DUI arrests. She then added that she only smoked weed to manage the pain associated with her endometriosis.

Haddish's most recent arrest occurred in the early morning hours of November 24, 2023, after she allegedly fell asleep at the wheel of her Tesla in Beverly Hills, California, and was charged with a DUI.

She had been at a Thanksgiving event the evening before at The Laugh Factory in West Hollywood, and was released from custody the same day of her arrest.

The charge was reduced to a violation, and The Haunted Mansion star pleaded no contest in February.

During her podcast appearance, Haddish said she was "driving exhausted" and would've fought her charges "tooth and nail" if stress hadn't impacted her health.
