Elton John celebrates 29 years without the booze

1 min read

Elton John is celebrating a special milestone on Monday. The 72-year-old singer is exactly 29 years sober. “Today, 29 years ago, I was a broken man. I finally gathered the courage to say the words that finally changed my life: I need help,” tweets Elton, who struggled for years with alcohol and drug addiction.

The singer is still overjoyed that he has completely changed the way of his life.

“I want to thank all the selfless people who helped me in my trial. I am forever grateful.”

In interviews, Elton is often frank about his former drug and alcohol problems. Earlier, the British singer said that asking for help is the hardest thing in overcoming addictions.

“It took sixteen years before I dared”, he looked back last year. “I know I am intelligent, I know I have a problem and I can live for six months, but it always got worse when I started again. An addiction is a serious problem and you have to do something about it yourself and you need help of others.”
