today i have 20 months sober. i am extremely proud. this hasn’t been easy. when you get sober… life still happens. you have to deal with all the same highs and lows as you did when you were using but now you don’t have the ability to numb yourself. you feel it. you feel everything. good and bad. but there is also beauty in that. over the past 20 months i have felt loss but i have also felt love. i felt joy but i also felt grief. but the bottom line is… i felt. and that is such a gift. today, when i look in the mirror i see a completely different man than i did 20 months ago. i see a man who knows that everything is exactly as it is meant to be. a man liberated from the prison of being stuck in the past or obsessing over the future. a man grateful for his life… exactly as it is. a man excited for the next chapter… and ready to face it… no matter what…. sober.
Frankie Grande has been sober for 20 months now, and his family couldn’t be prouder.
“Over the past 20 months i have felt loss but i have also felt love,” Frankie wrote in a post. “I felt joy but i also felt grief. but the bottom line is… i felt. and that is such a gift.”
His sister Ariana Grande joined in the celebration. “Man, I love u @FrankieJGrande,” she tweeted. “Happy. twenty. months. been staring at this draft n deleting bc everything i write makes me cry. just know i think you’re a superhero and u make me v. proud. everyone knows how hard this is and how strong you’ve been. congratulations and thank god.”
Following Ariana’s ex Mac Miller’s death, Frankie revealed that the late rapper helped him gather the strength to go to rehab.
“He was the reason I went to the rehabilitation center where I was detoxed safely from all of the drugs alcohol and medications I was taking, when I couldn’t imagine living without them,” Frankie wrote at the time.
