(WJW) – Actor Rob Lowe has recently celebrated his 33 years of sobriety.
The 59-year-old actor announced the milestone on his Instagram account, accompanied by a photo of him outside in water with a sunset behind him.
In his caption, Lowe offered hope and encouragement to those struggling with addiction, saying that a life full of love, family, God, opportunity, friends, work, dogs, and fun is possible with recovery.
Lowe said his wife, Sheryl Berkoff, was the inspiration behind the start of his sobriety journey, along with his supportive family.

During a guest appearance on ‘The Drew Barrymore Show,’ Lowe presented his son with a five-year sobriety chip.
