Last year, Flavor Flav shared an Instagram post proudly announcing he’s been alcohol free for 365 days. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer included photos from the beginning of his journey until now — and the difference is clear as day. He captioned the post,

“1 year up,,, lotz more to go,,, next year I pray my whole family will be walkin the same path I am,,,

Flav previously said in a statement,

“I appreciate everyone’s support as I continue one day at a time in my sobriety. I am engaged with a support group and staying strong and healthy so I can continue to focus on my recovery.”

According to Flav’s manager,

“Today, October 19, marks his official one year mark of no alcohol, along with 15 months of no cigarettes and 13 years of no hard drugs.”
