Pop singer Sia tweeted on the night of Sept. 10, about her 8-year sobriety by writing “Eight years sober today. I love you, keep going. You can do it.”

Her message was retweeted over 11,000 times, which has more than 1,200 comments. Her followers not only admired the 42-year-old singer’s efforts on battling her addiction but also were inspired by her not giving up.

According to Billboard, Sia has been struggling with her addiction.

“For one reason or another it never happened for me. Then I got seriously addicted to Vicodin and Oxycodone, and I was always a drinker but I didn’t know I was an alcoholic. I was really unhappy being an artist and I was getting sicker and sicker,” she told Billboard in a 2013 cover story for the outlet, opening up about she needed to regroup.
