London: Supermodel Naomi Campbell used to think she "wouldn`t survive" the modelling world and used to hate looking at herself in the mirror.
The 40-year-old runway beauty admitted she pushed herself too hard because she thought she would go "crazy" if she had to sit down and evaluate what she wanted out of life, reported Femalefirst online.
"To be honest, there were times I thought I wouldn`t survive. The time between 1998 and 2005 was especially bad. During that time I avoided looking in the mirror, because I
didn`t like the person who was looking back at me," said Campbell.
"So I had to find out what I wanted and what I didn`t want. The thing is, as a model you`re used to being on the go, so just the thought of sitting down and thinking about something drives you crazy," she added.
The mental pressure led the British model to consume more alcohol.
"I used to have a lot of problems. Amongst others I drank too much so I joined the Alcoholics Anonymous to get and stay sober," said Campbell.
