While Eminem is in the middle of a multitude of anniversaries – his major label debut The Slim Shady LP just turned 20 and his critical high-point The Marshall Mathers LP turns 20 next year – over the weekend Em hit perhaps his most important date on the calendar: his sober anniversary.
That’s right, Saturday marked 11 years of Eminem’s sobriety. Announced with a picture of his new eleven-year sobriety coin and the text “Still not afraid,” Eminem sends a powerful message about overcoming personal struggles and is using his platform to broadcast that triumph over addiction is possible.
