Selma Blair Got Emotional About Addiction & Sobriety on Instagram
Selma Blair turns 46 on Saturday, and on Instagram, she got reflective about another big personal milestone she hit Thursday. Inspired by the love she received ahead of her birthday, Blair got candid about her sobriety.
Blair posted a photo of herself in front of a birthday cake and sporting a birthday hat, and her emotional caption gave followers a deeper look at what this birthday means to her.
"2 years sober. 2 years feeling everything and nothing. 2 years of extreme gratitude and humility and grace," she wrote. "I thank the Lord and my friends. Thank you for the most special birthday week @fran.anania, #amypines, #arthursaintbleick. I prayed for a miracle at my lowest points. I am a living miracle. Thank you. Thank you." Blair also used the festive hashtags "#birthdaygirl," "#almost46," "#summersolstice" and "#grace" to really send the message home.
It's been a long road of repair and recovery for Blair, who has been open about her journey toward sobriety. In 2017, she revealed to her Instagram followers that she's spent most of her life battling depression, anxiety and alcoholism. A year earlier, Blair was removed from a flight from Cancun, Mexico, to Los Angeles after "a combination of prescription medication with alcohol" severely impaired her. Blair later apologized for her actions, and it seems that 2016 was the year she began to get sober.
Two years later, she looks as healthy and radiant as ever. This is a huge achievement, and we're looking forward to many more celebratory posts from Blair on this anniversary in the years to come.
