Eminem Celebrates 11 Years of Sobriety


Eminem is marking 11 years sober following a pill addiction that could have killed him.

The “Kamikaze” rapper tweeted a photo of his medallion on Saturday, writing, “11 years – still not afraid.”

The token reads, “XI” (the Roman numerals for 11), “Unity,” “Service” and “Recovery.”

Last year, Eminem posted his 10-year medallion while he was at the Coachella Festival.

In 2010, Eminem — real name Marshall Mathers — revealed to the New York Times that he consumed 20 pills a day at the height of his addiction.

The “Real Slim Shady” MC credits his daughters — and endorphins from exercise — with keeping him sober.

“I love them so much and they’ve helped me through so many things,” he said of Hailie Jade, Lainey and Whitney.

He also sees a rehab counselor weekly, which has changed his outlook on life significantly.

“I think I’ve calmed down a bit,” he told the Times. “My overall look on things is a lot more mature than it used to be.”
