Rob Lowe’s son, John, is celebrating two years of sobriety.

Last week, the 25-year-old celebrated the milestone by posting on Instagram with a split photo of him drinking a bottle of wine next to his sobriety calendar, marked “Then -> Now.”

“I haven’t been vocal about my sobriety on here just because I felt it was something I wanted to keep personal, but I had a change of heart today,” he said in the post. “Two years in and I am more grateful than ever to have a community of support and friends who continue to build me up and hold me accountable.”

“I Am More Grateful Than Ever”

He continued, “making the decision to change your life is difficult at any age, but as a young person I hope that I can be a small example that it is possible and that things really do get SO MUCH BETTER.”

The 27-year-old noted that the coronavirus quarantine was an “incredibly strange and tense time” and said that “his heart goes out to everyone going through something.” John continued to give advice acknowledging those struggling that are looking for help and having a hard time finding it. As a Stanford University graduate, John appeared in the 2019 Netflix original movie, “Holiday in the Wild,” and oftentimes takes to trolling his famous father on Instagram.

He suggesting that anyone struggling with addiction during this time finding support through family friends, including online Zoom meetings.

“Life doesn’t have to be short and we don’t have to blow it!” he added, referring the caption on his photo of him with liquor in his hand.

John’s father, actor Rob Lowe, who has been sober for 30 years as of May 2020, was quick to support his son after he shared his story online.

“I have never been more proud,” Rob, 56, wrote via Instagram. “Your hard work is an inspiration. Keep Coming Back.”

The “Parks and Recreation” star marked 30 years of sobriety this year and credited Steven Tyler for helping him get there.

Then -> Now. I haven’t been vocal about my sobriety on here just because I felt it was something I wanted to keep personal, but I had a change of heart today. Two years in and I am more grateful than ever to have a community of support and friends who continue to build me up and hold me accountable. Making the decision to change your life is difficult at any age, but as a young person I hope that I can be a small example that it is possible and that things really do get SO MUCH BETTER. It’s an incredibly strange and tense time in our world right now, and my heart goes out to everyone going through something, but today I am especially aware of the addicts who are looking for help and having a hard time finding it. If this is the case and you’re reading this, reach out to someone: a friend, a family member, me… and go online and find a ZOOM AA meeting and JUMP IN!! Love you all. Life doesn’t have to be short and we don’t have to blow it!
