Steve-O is celebrating 13 years of being sober — and thanking his “Jackass” family for helping him get there.
“So grateful to be celebrating thirteen years of sobriety today…” the 46-year-old stunt performer captioned two photos — one taken in 2006 surrounded by booze and what appear to be pills while smoking a cigarette and the other surrounded by vegetables and a green juice — Thursday.
“thanks to everyone who helped me make it this far and, as always, thanks to @johnnyknoxville for giving me the loving nudge that started my journey,” he captioned the side-by-side image that referenced his “Jackass” co-star Johnny Knoxville.
Steve-O starred on the MTV reality series between 2000-2002, and went on to appear alongside Knoxville, 50, in the subsequent “Jackass” movies.
“Love this. Love u too Steve O. Proud of u. Congrats!❤️” Knoxville commented on the photo.
This isn’t the first time Steve-O publicly credited Knoxville with helping him get sober, however. On his 10-year anniversary of sobriety in 2018, he said, “I just can’t put into words how grateful I am for @JohnnyKnoxville and the rest of the guys who locked me up in a psychiatric ward on March 9, 2008, where this journey began. Thank you, dudes, I really love you…”
Steve-O’s fiancée, Lux Wright, also celebrated the milestone on social media.
“Happy 13 years of sobriety to my Baybuh!!💥 Love you getchu🖤” she captioned a photo of him in a hot tub.
The pair announced their engagement in January 2018.
Steve-O is certainly not the first “Jackass” cast member to struggle in the wake of the show, which led to many injuries over the years.
“If you got hurt, you were like, ‘Oh, I can just take a pill for that,’” Chris Raab, who frequently appeared on the series told Page Six in 2018. “And you justify it’s a painkiller, I’m in pain. I broke my ankle. I need this. And then you justify it to yourself if you broke your arm, you’d need [another painkiller] too. And before you know it, you’re just so caught up in it.”
