Go Demi!

Posted on

This is Demi Lovato. She's a singer and actor who has been famous since her teenage years spent on the Disney Channel.

And on March 15, Demi celebrated five years of sobriety, which she marked with a post on Instagram.

In the caption, Demi wrote:

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.

Throughout the years, Demi has been incredibly honest about her trouble with drugs, alcohol, and eating disorders, and about living with bipolar disorder.


She told Access Hollywood:

I couldn't go without 30 minutes to an hour without cocaine and I would bring it on airplanes... I would smuggle it basically and just wait until everyone in first class would go to sleep and I would do it right there. I'd sneak to the bathroom and I'd do it.
