Rapper Eminem took to Instagram to share his celebration is being 12 years sober. Posting a picture of his 12 year pin, with the caption, “clean dozen, in the books! I’m not afraid.”

He talked about his struggle with addiction in an interview with the New York Times back in 2010. He explained his drug of choice, saying, “Vicodin, Valium and Ambien, and toward the end, which caused my overdose, methadone. I didn’t know it was methadone. I used to get pills wherever I could. I was just taking anything that anybody was giving to me.” He also revealed his motivation to stay sober. “My kids, and also I see a rehab counselor once a week. I’ve been clean for two years.”

Congrats Em!
