Demi Lovato celebrates 6 years of sobriety: "So grateful"

Demi Lovato celebrates 6 years of sobriety:

In an inspiring message on Twitter, the Disney legend wrote: 'Just officially turned 6 years sober. "We're healthy, we're happy", De La Garza continued, adding that she's still in therapy.

The actress and musician revealed that, at 21 years old, she was addicted to alcohol and drugs, but she had worked hard to overcome her struggle.

"Today is a very special day for me". She admitted to trying cocaine for the first time at 17.

Demi was open a year ago about how she had wanted to relapse, but didn't.

The "Confident" singer has since credited the CAST Centers, a Los Angeles-based rehabilitation facility, for treating her the following year. The singer and former child star has not been shy about sharing her struggles with mental health issues, including bipolar disorder, eating disorders, self-harm and addiction. "I was not easy to work with".

"I think the woman that went into treatment when I finally did accept help, I think she was a really broken, tired, sick girl", De La Garza explained.

Lovato also said she's noticed a significant change in her mom's overall well-being.

Demi then texted her manager to let them know, and took herself straight to an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting in NY.

The real wake-up call for the pop star was during her 2010Camp Rock 2tour with her tour mates and close personal friends, the Jonas Brothers, when she punched one oftheir backup dancers, Alex Welch.

Lovato recently invited "GMA" co-anchor Robin Roberts to give a motivational talk at one of the events and said she is "somebody that is so inspirational and I love her to death, so I'm very grateful that she's coming". "If you sign up and you're going to the concert you can come to this motivational speaking [before the show]", she said.
