Florence Welch celebrated a significant milestone in her battle against substance abuse.
“♥️I am 7 years sober today,” the 34-year-old singer wrote on Instagram on Wednesday. “I send my love and support to anyone who is struggling.”
The Florence and the Machine rocker expressed her empathy for those dealing with their own battles.
“If you are feeling shaky around ED issues, drugs or alcohol, I completely understand,” she said.
But Welch sent a motivational message urging fans not to give up while they’re on the right path.
“The desire to disassociate is so strong. But please don’t give up. We are going to need you on the other side.♥️ x X,” she said.
In June 2019, Welch opened up about her new life as a sober woman.

“Partying was, I felt, a defining feature of my personality – good at singing, good at drinking and good at taking drugs,” she told Vogue at the time. “But the new-found thrill of leaving somewhere with all my belongings, having not been felt up by someone inappropriate in a car park, has still not left me.”
The “Dog Days Are Over” crooner then added, “It feels miraculous to spend my Mondays working or reading rather than binge-watching ‘Bake Off’ unable to move, intermittently weeping into a pillow, hoping the bunting will block out the regret.”
Last year she celebrated her sixth year of sobriety by telling fans she got the number 3 tattooed on her finger at three years sober — because she’d once broken that digit during a drunken fight.
