Actor-filmmaker Pooja Bhatt, who went public about her drinking issues last year, says she is on the road to recovery and has not touched alcohol since the last four months.

"Sober is the new black...celebrating four months of sobriety and counting! Sobriety Recovery," Pooja tweeted on Friday.

Pooja quit drinking on Christmas last year, and has addressed her issues on several public forums.

In one such forum, she had said: "I stopped drinking by first acknowledging that I had a drinking problem. Because you are a woman and you live in a society where they are always taught or forced to brush things under the carpet. We tend to bury this shameful habit that we have of covering it up and say, 'Oh, we don't have a problem, it is somebody else's and I am not that drunk'."

On the work front, she is working on "Jism 3".
