'I was a broken man': Elton John celebrates 29 years of sobriety


Elton John is celebrating another milestone on his journey with sobriety.

The "Rocket Man" singer shared a photo to social media Monday of an Alcoholics Anonymous sobriety coin, announcing in the caption he's been sober for the last 29 years.

"29 years ago today, I was a broken man," he wrote in the post shared to Instagram and also to Twitter. "I finally summoned up the courage to say 3 words that would change my life: 'I need help'. Thank-you to all the selfless people who have helped me on my journey through sobriety. I am eternally grateful."

The coin has the phrase "To thine own self be true," along with the words "unity," "service" and "recovery" around the roman numerals for 29.
