Some serious congratulations are in order for Five Finger Death Punch singer Ivan Moody who marked one year of sobriety via Instagram.

Moody shared the emotional video below where he said, “I’m speechless, man. A lot of people didn’t think I’d make it 24 hours [sober], and honestly, there were times where I didn’t either. But I have a great team around me. I’m trying not to tear up right now. I’m just really proud, and it’s not even about me necessarily today; it’s about a lot of people who didn’t make it. I’ve met a lot of great people in and out of recovery and on the road for that matter, and I still talk to people that are battling this disease. You’re the ones that are in my thoughts, and I am with you every step of the way, whether you have 24 hours [of sobriety] or 24 years.”

FFDP bassist Chris Kael also shared some kind words about Moody’s accomplishment via the photo below along with the following caption: “Join me in celebrating @ivanmoody today on his One Year Sober Birthday! Roughly 75 percent of those who start the path to sobriety don’t make it a full year. I’ve seen firsthand the work that Ivan has done through 365 consecutive days to get himself to this HUGE milestone. I’ve seen the amazing, positive changes in him over this past year that have gotten closer and closer to the man we all knew he could be. I’m proud of you, my friend. As are countless people you have inspired along the way. Keep that shit up!”
