"Today I am 3 years clean of drugs + alcohol. If I didn't make that choice there's a good chance I wouldn't be here right now…I can't imagine missing all these incredible gifts life continues to give me," he wrote on Instagram.
"Is it hard? [Expletive] YES! Do I miss it? I'd be lying if I said no…but that's the point, this is my fight. This year has been particularly tough for me + when I look back I smile knowing I made it through.
"The best advice I've gotten is to just take it one day at a time so that's what I do…on this day I'm just gonna be grateful for the ride. We all have a story to tell, this is just part of mine."

Mod Sun has opened up about his battle with alcohol and drugs in the past, telling Hollywood Life in 2020: "The drugs were gonna kill me and the drugs were holding back my shine and it was dimming my light.
"Going on two years of not doing drugs or drinking, I have filled my time so heavily with falling in love with my art."
