The hit singer and popular Disney Channel alum is currently celebrating her Sixth Year sober. Demi Lovato took to Twitter this morning to make the proud announcement saying, "Just officially turned 6 years sober. So grateful for another year of joy, health and happiness. It IS possible. ??"

The "Sorry Not Sorry" singer has a reputation for being unapologetically real through her music but Lovato has also been very open and vocal about her ongoing battle with sobriety. In October of 2017, Lovato released a Youtube documentary titled "Simply Complicated" in which she revealed her personal struggles. This included issues with substance abuse, addiction, an eating disorder, and self-injury disorder and being in the public eye only made her internal struggles more difficult.

She openly admits that her Disney career brought on a lot of pressure and she regrets starting her career when she was so young.

A path of self-destruction

The real wake-up call for the pop star was during her 2010 Camp Rock 2 tour with her tour mates and close personal friends, the Jonas Brothers, when she punched one of their backup dancers, Alex Welch. It was later revealed that Lovato was intoxicated when it happened. Immediately following the incident Lovato checked into rehab for three months.

A rep for E News said at the time, "Demi has decided to take personal responsibility for her actions and seek help. She is doing just that. She regrets not being able to finish her tour, but is looking forward to getting back to work in the near future."

Recovery was not easy

According to Page Six, in her documentary film Lovato revealed that in 2012, post-rehab, she was still using drugs and sneaking them everywhere with her.

Lovato revealed, “I wasn’t working my program, I wasn’t ready to get sober." But since then she has been on the straight and narrow, working every day to stay clean and getting help from programs like Alcoholics Anonymous.

But this battle is going to be a lifelong one. The singer even revealed, in a recent Billboard interview, that she nearly had a relapse at the 2016 Met Gala [VIDEO]. She said, " “This one celebrity was a complete bitch and was miserable to be around. It was very cliquey. I remember being so uncomfortable that I wanted to drink.”

Lovato went to an AA meeting instead and is fully committed to staying sober. With a Grammy nomination, a successful sixth studio album and a headlining tour with DJ Khaled Lovato has made an incredible and healthy comeback. She is back on track and has the right mindset.

Lovato's authenticity is refreshing

Most Hollywood celebrities are not so open and honest about their everyday struggles. They paint an unrealistic sense of perfection. This is a large reason that Lovato is so relatable to her fan base. She is even offering free mental health counseling to fans on her "Tell Me You Love Me" tour.

She revealed to People, back in January before her tour began, “It’s basically like a therapy session before the concerts and we have speakers from all over and we’re also helping out with different charities from around the country.” She is an inspiration to not only fans but people struggling all over the world.
