5 years sober today. If you're newly sober, keep at it, it gets so so awesome. YOU CAN DO IT.

Her fans sent loving messages of support.

@Sia you are a wonderful, beautiful, courageous, talented, and compassionate human being. we are all blessed to have you here with us

@Sia Thank you for using your own experience to encourage others. Hope is the most beautiful gift you could give someone. Congratulations!

@Sia GIRL! We're so proud of you- there's not a day that goes by when you don't inspire us. Love you so much

In an interview last year with ABC's Chris Connelly for Nightline, Sia revealed that 2005 was a low point for her.

I was extremely depressed at the time, that was one of my lowest points. I don't think I ever would have stopped drinking had I not got hooked on Xanax and OxyContin. I don't think I was taking them for more than maybe 10 months before I hit rock bottom.

It was in 2010 that she began a 10-step program. She's since been nominated for five Grammy Awards, two People's Choice Awards and one Golden Globe.

She currently has plans to direct a film starring "Chandelier" and Dance Moms star, Maddie Ziegler.
