For 12 years, the rapper Eminem has been sober. Today, he shared this with his fans by posting a photo on Instagram of the token, which he received for not having used drugs for many years.
Pure dozen! I am not afraid
– wrote the 47-year-old musician.
Eminem has celebrated this date for many years and annually publishes a photo of the token.
The rapper, who has won the Grammy fifteen times, has often talked about drug addiction in his songs. In 2008, he had a methadone overdose, and then he stopped using drugs. In an interview, he admitted to using 10 to 20 Vicodin tablets a day, in addition to huge doses of Valium, Ambien, and other prohibited drugs.
The quantity was so great that I don’t even know what I was taking,
As for the overdose, the rapper told me that the drug had been given to him by a friend, and later he discovered that it was methadone, which is used to treat heroin addicts. Eminem admitted that his doctor said that the amount of methadone he was taking was equivalent to four doses of heroin. If I had known it was methadone, I probably would not have taken it,
– he confessed.
According to the rapper, in many ways, his children influenced his decision to give up drugs: his own daughter Haley and adoptive Lane and Whitner.

You inspire many people struggling with addiction every day. You prove that anything is possible if you work on it. You motivate billions of people around the world who admire you. You deserve praise for fighting for your own life. We love you, you are our family
