While a number of celebrities have been open about getting sober, two of the most important parts of recovery are taking things one day at a time, and doing the steps.
As Demi Lovato told NY Daily News, she’s currently celebrating five years of being sober, and she said, “You just have to take it one day at a time, some days are easier than others and some days you forget about drinking and using.”
Lovato admitted that “every day is a battle,” and to stay sober, she’s in therapy, takes her meds for her bipolar disorder, goes to the gym, and attends AA meetings. “I make it a priority.”
Lovato admits that her life has had “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, my family, friends, and everyone else who supported me.”
