9 celebrities who have shared their inspiring sober stories

Sweet Spot

Eminem recently shared on Instagram that he’s been clean for a decade. Fresh off his Coachella performances, the rapper posted a photo of his AA medallion to commemorate the big achievement. He captioned the shot: “Celebrated my 10 years.” Eminem has talked about his addiction, revealing that it got so bad he was taking up to 20 pills a day. A near-death experience, from an accidental overdose back in 2007, led him to check into rehab a year later.

Demi Lovato has also been vocal about her struggles with addiction. In March, she celebrated six years without drugs and alcohol. “Just officially turned 6 years sober,” Lovato wrote on Twitter. “So grateful for another year of joy, health and happiness. It IS possible.” The 25-year-old singer has admitted that her drinking and partying started when she was 17 and escalated during her Disney Channel days. She’s received treatment for bipolar disorder, bulimia, self-harm, and substance abuse.

In 2013, another Disney star checked into rehab. Zac Efron, who starred in the “High School Musical” franchise, battled with drugs and alcohol. He credits exercise for keeping him on track and sober. “When I’m very careful about my fitness and have a goal in mind, it keeps me motivated and balanced.”
