Sometimes, we just need a little bit of love to get us through life’s biggest problems, and the same can be said for drug addicts and alcoholics. Even when the going gets tough, some encouragement and inspiration from loved ones can be enough to get people through the day. Even followers on social media portals like Instagram and Twitter can reach out to show support. Just ask actor Dax Shepard, whose heartwarming tweet about his 12th year of sobriety (in 2016) is nothing short of heartwarming. Thanking his wife Kristen Bell and his children, Shepard confessed that he finally has self-esteem. Perhaps each of us can learn something from this quirky, lovable actor. Let’s take a closer look at Dax Shepard’s inspiring sobriety celebration.
The Power of Tweets
Back in 2016, Dax Shepard posted an adorable and heartwarming tweet that thanked his wife and children for inspiring him to stay sober and expressed his pride at maintaining self-esteem (for the first time in a long time). As of 2016, Shepard celebrated 12 years of sobriety, and (with hope) will celebrate many more to come. As we have seen in many cases, hard work and love can go hand-in-hand, and it takes a lot of courage to open up about sobriety on social media.
Inspiring Millions to Rehab
However, as you may have guessed, Shepard is not the first celebrity to tweet about his sobriety, but his message is still a prime example of how a single message can inspire thousands (if not millions) of people. In 2015, the “Socially Sober” study (issued by Recovery.org) assessed about 79,000 Instagram posts and discovered that #soberlife and other hashtags are becoming more popular, encouraging more people to pursue their goals for rehabilitation.
