Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash is celebrating the 15th anniversary of his getting sober.
Slash’s longtime girlfriend Meegan Hodges took to her Instagram to share a photo of the 55-year-old musician with the late punk-rock fashion icon Jimmy Webb, and she included the following message: “Baby, Congratulations on your 15 YEARS of SOBRIETY! ‘An addict who achieves recovery is capable of achieving anything.’ (wise words someone said) I am so very proud of you every day but today I am so very extra proud of you. I love you to the moon and back! #recovery #youaresexyandsober #strength #bestmanyoucanbe #slash #happy4thofjuly”.
Slash, who was diagnosed in 2001 with a form of congestive heart failure known as cardiomyopathy as a result of years of chronic and heavy alcohol abuse, has been openly discussing his past vices and his eventual recovery from alcohol and heroin addiction.
