SNL Star, Pete Davidson, Sober For First Time In 8 Years
Have you noticed that Pete Davidson hasn’t been on SNL as much lately? The comedy star recently admitted on his Instagram account that he made a decision to take back his health by quitting drugs. This is the first time the 23-year-old comedian has been sober in 8 years and we couldn’t be more excited for him.
A Sober Pete Davidson
“Just wanted to let you guys know I’m okay. I know I’ve kinda been missing, on social media and on the show. I quit drugs and am happy and sober for the first time in 8 years. It wasn’t easy, but I got a great girl, great friends and I consider myself a lucky man. I’ll always be here for you guys, I promise. Remember to never give up hope because sometimes that’s all we got. We are a family and I appreciate all your love and support. It’s nice to be back in action.” A post shared by Pete Davidson (@petedavidson) on
You may even notice that his IG account is pretty slim as well, but there is good reason for that. Davidson decided to strip his entire account so that he could start with a fresh, clean slate in recovery. It is usually suggested for those in early recovery to change people, places, and things so that “triggers” are less likely to happen and cause a relapse. So, while not shocking, it is pretty refreshing to see from a celebrity. Does this show how serious he is about his sobriety? Only time will tell, but it looks like he is off to a good start.
The SNL star had also explained to High Times in 2016 that he suffers from Chrohn’s Disease and would use marijuana as a means to control his symptoms. He was a huge advocate for medical marijuana, and was even a self-proclaimed “pothead,” but as time went on, the drugs took a hold of him more than he may have anticipated and something had to change.
We wish nothing but the best for Pete Davidson and can’t wait to see what amazing things he will do in his life and on SNL. Keep living the dream, Pete. You inspire us all.
