Rob Lowe celebrates 25 years sober

Actor Rob Lowe took to Twitter to celebrate 25 years of sobriety, and spread a message of hope to anyone still abusing drugs or alcohol.

“To those struggling with addiction, there is true, real hope,” he wrote. “25 years ago today, I found recovery; and a life of promise. #Grateful”

Lowe, now 51, was known as a party boy in the early part of his career, an image that was complete with a sex scandle and rehab stint.

The sex tape scandle – which involved an underage girl – ended up being the rock bottom that Lowe needed in order to seek help.

“It ends up being the greatest thing that ever happened to me,” he said during an interview on Oprah in 2011, according to the Huffington Post. “Because what it ends up doing is accelerating sort of my alcohol stuff to where I finally get sober and have been able to have the rest of my life that I'm so blessed with.”
