AceShowbiz - Demi Lovato took to Instagram on Sunday night, March 15 to post a photo of her locking lips with her boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama after he paid a sweet tribute to her in honor of the 3rd anniversary of her sobriety. Demi also thanked her fans on Twitter.
The "Heart Attack" hitmaker wrote alongside the black-and-white photo, "How much this man completes me. He's loved me the way I never thought I deserved to be loved and with this day marking my 3rd year sober... After putting up with my ups and downs and supporting my recovery... he still never takes it and I want the world to know how incredible his soul is. I really wouldn't be alive today without him. I love you Wilmer."
Earlier in the day, Wilmer posted on Instagram a painting of a tree along with caption, "I am more important then any past, demon, disorder or addiction.. Where you decided that YOUR life was worth living while loving yourself.. And I'm sure glad you did... I knew then the woman you've become now.. I am proud and honor to be front row to see the world you are about to change. I love you Demi."
Demi also thanked her friends and fans for sending congratulation messages to her. "I'm still catching up to texts and congrats tweets... Thank everyone who has supported my journey. I never knew sobriety was possible for me," she tweeted, "But with the love and support I've been given from my friends, fans, and family.. I now celebrate my 3rd birthday. Thank you to everyone. I love you all... #3"
Demi discussed her past drug and alcohol problems in an interview with Access Hollywood back in 2013. At that time, she said, "I couldn't go without 30 minutes to an hour without cocaine and I would bring it on airplanes. I would smuggle it basically and just wait until everyone in first class would go to sleep and I would do it right there. I'd sneak to the bathroom and I'd do it."
She also recalled going to the airport bringing a Sprite bottle filled with alcohol. "I was going to the airport and I had a Sprite bottle just filled with vodka and it was just nine in the morning and I was throwing up in the car and this was just to get on a plane to go back to LA to the sober living house that I was staying at... I had all the help in the world, but I didn't want it," she shared.
She explained, "I think at 19 years old, I had a moment where I was like, 'Oh my God... that is alcoholic behavior.' [It's] no longer, I'm young and rebellious and out having fun, it was, wow, I'm one of those people... I gotta get my s*** together."
