“Clean dozen, in the books!” Eminem wrote alongside a photo of the medallion, stamped with the traditional AA triangle and the words “Recovery,” “Unity” and “Service.”
“I’m not afraid,” he continued.
The 47-year-old “Lose Yourself” rapper posted a snapshot of his Alcoholics Anonymous coin on social media on Monday, marking 12 years of sobriety.
Sobriety chips are often used by AA members to mark sober anniversaries, but not an official AA device. The mementos allow self-resolving addicts to continue their isolation from the issue of their addiction, while still reflecting the dedication of the organization to its customers.
It is the third year in a row with a snapshot of his token, Eminem has marked his sober anniversary. Last year, though noting that he was 11 years sober, he also wrote that he was “not afraid.”
Before that, in between his headline sets at Coachella, the singer celebrated his sobriety anniversary writing, “Celebrated my 10 years yesterday” alongside a picture in which he kept his medallion up for the camera.
Back in 2007, Eminem had a near-death experience from an overdose of Methadone. His addiction to the substance such as Vicodin, Valium, and Ambien went on escalate to the point that he took up to 20 pills a day.
After going for rehab and trying hard to get out of the drug addiction he has finally made it and ultimately, Eminem credits his children for recovery, including biological daughter Hailie Jade, 24, and Alaina Marie (“Lainey”), 26, and Whitney, 17, his two adopted daughters.
