Entertainer Steve-O celebrated 15 years of sobriety this year, but we’re a little disappointed he didn’t do the same for 13 years.

The Jackass star has been candid about his sober path and the challenges he has experienced in the past.

To be honest, he is just one of many celebrities who have spoken out about their dark moments and arduous road to recovery.

Undoubtedly, many people look up to celebrities, and their willingness to be candid about their challenges has aided many of their fans.

In fact, Steve-O had his own documentary, Steve-O: Demise and Rise, which examined the Jackass star’s drug troubles in greater detail.


Speaking about the doc, Steve-O said: “I watched a rough draft of it very early on and I reacted badly to it.

“When I saw the footage of myself doing drugs, I felt like I could see them, I could taste them.

“It made me crave them and as embarrassing as that footage is, that just seemed like another reason to get high. I couldn’t watch it; I haven’t watched it since then.”

He continued: “The producers put it all together and finished it up without any input for me, it’s better that way.”

Obviously, beating an addiction is never easy, thus commemorating sobriety anniversaries is essential.

And Steve-O celebrated in spectacular fashion, posting two photographs to his Twitter account in 2021.

Captioning the tweet, he wrote: “So grateful to be celebrating thirteen years of sobriety today— thanks to everyone who helped me get here!”

On the other hand, the images accompanying this essay are unquestionably the key talking point.

The left photo is from 2006, and it shows Steve-O surrounded by medications, alcohol, and what appears to be blood.



He appears to be stressed out and in a terrible mood, while the second photo is the polar opposite.

In that one, starting in 2021, the medications and liquor have been replaced with vegetables, and Steve-O appears to be much happier and healthier.

Eminem, another famous face celebrating 15 years sober this year, has opened up about his past battles and demons, revealing he used to take up to 30 Vicodin (an opioid that treats severe pain) a day, as well as ‘anywhere from 40 to 60 Valium’ (a benzodiazepine that can help people be calm).

During the documentary How To Make Money Selling Drugs, Eminem said: “I don’t know at what point exactly it started to be a problem. I just remember liking it more and more.”
