GOING THE EXTRA 8 MILES –  

Feb. 25, 2022 – Elton John has been living sober for over 30 years. And in that time, the Grammy-winning artist has been able to reflect on his life before and after he found his sobriety. 

“I am a survivor,” John confessed in a 2019 interview with Variety. “I’ve survived a lot of things. Life is full of pitfalls, even when you’re sober. I can deal with them now because I don’t have to run away and hide.”

“I have a confrontation problem which I don’t have anymore because I learned if you don’t communicate and you don’t talk about things then you’re never going to find a solution,” he added. As someone who participated in a 12-step program, Eminem knows the power of having supporters on the road to recovery. The “Lose Yourself” rapper spoke about his relationship with John in a 2011 interview with Rolling Stone.
