Ari Lennox has previously been open with her fans about her sobriety journey and now she’s celebrating one full year! The Pressure singer took to Instagram to share some reflective words about the past year.

“I needed an excuse to drink and not feel the pain of everyday life and trauma,” Lennox said in the post.

She added, “my toxic relationship with alcohol left me stagnant with closed eyes, hindering my growth and my healing. Hindering my ability to overcome fear […] I’m letting go and letting God!”

In the post, she gave herself credit for doing what she thought would be impossible.

“I just knew it would be impossible to be sober if I was still flying, but wow look at me,” Lennox wrote. “I did that! I love you Courtney. You are so damn strong and fine as hell, god damn. Growing looks wonderful on you. Bravery is sexy on you. You go girl!,”

Lennox also thanked her fans for sharing their sobriety journeys with her as well which helped her own.

“Y’all knew how many times I wanted to give in, but y’all were so sweet and motivating. We powered through!,” Lennox exclaimed. “Let’s keep it going. Cheers to another year of being present and growing deeper than ever before. One day at a mfn time, baby.”
