Legendary singer, Elton John has celebrated 29 years of sobriety (abstinence from alcohol or drugs).
The 72-year-old singer shared a photo of his Alcoholics Anonymous Sobriety Coin to mark the occasion.
The coin was inscribed with AA’s motto of “Unity, Service, and Recovery,” as well as one of the organization’s common sayings, “To thine own self be true.”
Reflecting on what the date meant to him, the singer wrote this in a touching post- 29 years ago today, I was a broken man. I finally summoned up the courage to say 3 words that would change my life: “I need help”. Thank-you to all the selfless people who have helped me on my journey through sobriety. I am eternally grateful.
