Demi Lovato is celebrating five years of sobriety. The 24-year-old last attended rehab at the age of 18. She posted the news and her gratitude to Instagram.
So grateful. It's been quite the journey. So many ups and downs. So many times I wanted to relapse but sat on my hands and begged God to relieve the obsession. I'm so proud of myself but I couldn't have done it without my higher power (God), my family, friends, and everyone else who supported me. Feeling humbled and joyful today. Thank you guys for sticking by my side and believing in me. ??
Demi started working as a young child and has dealt with a variety of mental health issues like bipolar disorder, as well as eating disorders and addictions. After experiencing a lot of bullying as a child she became depressed and turned to self-harm.
When Demi was first receiving treatment, she didn’t even realize the extent of the issues.
“I never found out until I went into treatment that I was bipolar. Looking back, it makes sense.”
Since getting sober she has continued to be extremely successful. In an interview last year she shared that:
“Every day is a work in progress so hopefully I make it to 2017 with my sobriety. I take it one day at a time and for today I’m doing great.”
