James Kennedy Celebrates One Year Of Sobriety!

James Kennedy is now one year sober. The SURver announced the milestone via Instagram on Sunday. “Hey everyone just wanted to let you all know I’ve made it to my one year sober Today!” the Vanderpump Rules star wrote.

“Letting go of drinking was the best decision I ever made and I’m going strong," he continued. "I don’t miss the booze ...... I don’t miss the feeling .... I’m so grateful for everything now and life has become more beautiful in many ways.”

He concluded by thanking his longtime girlfriend Raquel Levis for being there for him.

“Thank you to my rock @raquelleviss for getting me here I couldn’t of done this without you my love.♥️ and thank you all for the support this past year.”

In March, he appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, where he spoke about his journey and said that he’s “going on to nine months sober” at that time.

“I think because of all the drinking I was doing and stuff I was really hiding away from my true emotions and just blaming whatever I wanted to get out the easy way,” said Kennedy, after a clip of him and his girlfriend Raquel Leviss played, according to PEOPLE.

“I’m going on to nine months sober,” Kennedy told Cohen. “I haven’t had a drink in nearly nine months and I just feel completely different to what I was watching here. I have gone to AA meetings and stuff since then.”

Kennedy added that since he’s stopped drinking, he feels more in control of his life. “And you know, I’ve really taken hold of my life and trying to change it for the better and change our relationship for the better,” he said. “I know that I should be doing this for me, but I’m also doing it for my relationship with Raquel.”

Kennedy's girlfriend Raquel Leviss called him out for his drunken behavior during the latest season of the Bravo hit reality series. In the clip played on WWHL, Kennedy said, “There’s something about this time, I truly feel like I need to take it seriously before she just walks out the door.”

Cohen also asked him about the times on the show when he hid his drinking from others. “I have hidden that before from people, and I have lied about that before,” Kennedy responded. “But you know this time I’m not lying to myself about it and it feels incredible — eventually the people will see too.”
