Thabang Moleya celebrates 10 years of being free from alcohol and drugs
Thabang Moleya celebrates 10 years of being free from alcohol and drugs.
Taking to social media, the South African film director and actor shared a photo of himself with a cake to mark the huge milestone.
He said the journey to being totally free and clean was not easy as he lost some friends who also have similar struggles.
“10-year sobriety milestone. Ten yrs of being free from alcohol and substance abuse. The journey of recovery is a lifelong commitment. Every day I wake up and pray, ‘thank you GOD I’m awake, and thank you that I’m clean, help me make the right decisions today. I think of the friends I’ve lost to this disease. I recall how dark and lonely it got: suicidal and depressed. I know that pain too well. I remember it like it was a day ago. My counselor used to say, ‘secrets die in the light’,” he wrote.
Thabang hopes his story inspires and motivates people struggling to be free.
“I hope this message encourages those struggling, for them to know that they’re not alone. For a long time, I believed I was. Grateful to my family and close friends who never gave up on me. To GOD for saving me. Sometimes we need the fire to carve the spear. I got this cake for my crew and cast on set today cause sometimes we need to learn to celebrate ourselves. GOD is good.”
