Tiffany Haddish Says She's Been Sober for 72 Days Following DUI Arrest: 'It's Not Hard'

'It's not hard,' the comedian said during an appearance on the 'Conversation With Amanda de Cadenet' podcast.

Tiffany Haddish is opening up about her sobriety journey. 

The 44-year-old comedian appeared on the latest episode of The Conversation With Amanda de Cadenet available now on all platforms, and she revealed that she's been sober for more than two months following her November arrest for DUI.

Haddish ultimately pleaded no contest to a reduced charge, The Los Angeles Times reported. She was sentenced to a year of probation, ordered to complete a driver's education program, the Mothers Against Drunk Driving Victim Impact Program, L.A. County's Hospital and Morgue Program, and 40 hours of community service. She also had to pay fines and fees.

"I haven't drank any alcohol, smoked any weed or anything in like 72 days," Haddish told de Cadenet. "It's not hard. It's not that hard."

As for why she decided to get sober, Haddish -- who was also arrested for driving under the influence in Georgia back in 2022 -- explained, "I consider myself being obedient to the law."

"It was court-mandated," she said. "You know, two years I've been waiting for my hearing in Georgia, and what happened in L.A. triggered Georgia, and they're like, 'OK, we want you to do driving alcohol tests.' And I'm like, 'Cool.'"

"And so I'm doing them, and there's no problem," Haddish continued. "Like, I've been passing every single one because I haven't been participating. I wasn't participating much in the first place, because I was only smoking weed on my period, because it was so painful."

Haddish, who said she's been diagnosed with endometriosis, noted that now that she's not smoking, she's tried new methods to deal with her period pain.

"I was doing the topical creams and the suppositories, and trying to figure out how to eliminate the pain. So then, when that was all taken away from me, then I'm like, 'OK, let me try this whole vegan [thing],'" she said. "... I feel like my jawline is impeccable right now. And I feel like I have the biting power of a pitbull. Like, my jaw is so strong. I have all this energy, but when I'm tired now, there's no like pushing through it because the pain is so intense and stuff like there's no pushing through it."

When it comes to if she plans to stay sober, Haddish noted, "I'm definitely not going to be drinking any time soon."

"I've got a few reasons why I might have a drink. I win an Oscar, gonna have gonna have a shot of vodka for that. If one of my family members die, I'm going to have a shot of vodka for that. Not a whole bunch, just a shot. If I get engaged to be married, I'm going to get s**t-faced drunk one night just so he could see my full crazy," she said. "But that'll be it."

Her new approach to alcohol, Haddish said, has to do with how much better she's felt without imbibing. 

"In these 70 days, waking up and not having all my joints on fire, my body feeling like it's burning, the aching, the brain fog, all those bad feelings, not feeling that, I feel like it's 1998 again. I feel like I'm a teenager again," she said. "Now I'm only having the pain when my cycle comes on. To not feel [like] a snail all day... is amazing. Why inflict that on myself?"

During the conversation, Haddish also opened up about several challenging moments in her life, all of which she believes led her to where she is today.

"I feel like traumas are just the reminders of the good things too," she said. "There's so many accomplishments, amazing moments. I don't focus too much on the drama. I use that trauma, like fertilizer, to grow something amazing. That's how I look at it."

This isn't de Cadenet's first A-list interview. The British photographer, author and media personality has previously chatted with stars including Jamie Lee Curtis, Matthew McConaughey and Nick Viall on her podcast.
