Eminem celebrates 11 years of sobriety after a nearly fatal overdose


The popular rapper Eminem marked a very special anniversary yesterday – he shared on his Instagram profile that he celebrated 11 years after he was sober.

“For 11 years and I’m still not afraid,” wrote 46-year-old Eminem as a commentary on the photo he holds the chip for sobriety.

Eminem, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, survived an almost fatal overdose in 2007. A year later he started rehabilitation. For this life experience opened in the ninth studio album “Revival” released in December 2017.

“I was pushing pills on every occasion. I took everything they gave me, “Eminem told the New York Times in 2010 after discovering he was taking 20 tablets a day.

In an interview with Men’s Journal in 2015, Eminem said he had replaced exercise addiction.

“When I finished my rehabilitation, I had to lose weight, but I also knew that I had to think about how to tick and stay sober. I had trouble sleeping, I started running. It gave me a natural endorphin and helped me fall asleep, “he explained.
