The singer shared on Instagram that she has been sober for five years, posting an image of a tally marking the milestone.

"So grateful. It's been quite the journey. So many ups and downs. So many times I wanted to relapse but sat on my hands and begged God to relieve the obsession," Lovato wrote. "I'm so proud of myself but I couldn't have done it without my higher power (God), my family, friends, and everyone else who supported me."

"Feeling humbled and joyful today," she continued. "Thank you guys for sticking by my side and believing in me."

Lovato previously opened up about her "sober birthday" at the 2017 Kids' Choice Awards over the weekend, noting that the most important step for her was learning to admit there was a problem.

"Surrendering is the most important thing whenever you're trying to battle your demons," she told Entertainment Tonight. "You have to admit that you have a problem first, and then you can overcome them."

"It feels amazing," she added of her sobriety. "All I've been doing is focusing on bettering myself. It's been quite the journey, but it's well worth it."
