Demi Lovato took to Instagram to reflect over her sobriety.
The ‘Tell Me You Love Me, singer aged 26, and a successful Disney star was sober for more than six years but relapsed last year. When she relapsed, she had vowed that she will continue to fight the addiction.
“Today I would’ve had 7 years sober. I don’t regret going out because I needed to make those mistakes but I must never forget that’s exactly what they were: mistakes.
Grateful that AA/NA never shuts the door on you no matter how many times you have to start your time over. I didn’t lose 6 years; I’ll always have that experience but now I just get to add to that time with a new journey and time count.
If you’ve relapsed and are afraid to get help again, just know it’s possible to take that step towards recovery. If you’re alive today, you can make it back. You’re worth it.”
Demi Lovato has battled addiction, mental illness, and eating disorders.
In 2010 she was treated for bipolar disorder, bulimia, self-harm, and addiction.
