Hip-hop legend Eminem recently celebrated a sober milestone on social media by sharing his 11 year medallion. The medallion, a chip given out by Alcoholics Anonymous, is meant to signify the anniversary of the rapper's decision to get sober and stay committed to his recovery after struggling for so many years.
The star has been open about his struggles with addiction to prescription painkillers and has spoken in-depth about what it took to get back on the path of wellness. Thankfully, Eminem lived to tell his story and now inspires others to overcome their demons. To understand the story of Eminem, we must start with the story of Marshall Mathers.
"Yeah, it's been a ride
I guess I had to go to that place to get to this one
Now some of you might still be in that place
If you're tryin' to get out, just follow me
I'll get you there."
