'It's been quite the journey.'
Singer and former Disney star Demi Lovato celebrated five years of sobriety this week. The star, who has been open about her struggles with addiction and eating disorders, marked the milestone with a post on Instagram:
“It feels amazing,” Lovato told People magazine. “All I’ve been doing is focusing on bettering myself. It’s been quite the journey, but it’s well worth it.”
She added, “Surrendering is the most important thing whenever you’re trying to battle your demons,” Lovato shared. “You have to admit that you have a problem first, and then you can overcome them.”
