Lamb Of God guitarist Mark Morton is celebrating five years of sobriety. The musician took to his X account to share an encouraging message to others struggling with addiction.

Morton wrote: “Today, after years of alcoholism & drug addiction, I celebrate 5 years clean & sober. If you’re reading this & struggling with addiction, please know that recovery IS possible for you. It’s so worth it… I promise. You’re worth it. Find someone in recovery & ask for help.”

Some of Morton’s colleagues were quick to congratulate him, including Alice Cooper guitarist and solo artist Nita Strauss and All That Remains singer Phil Labonte, both of whom have struggled with substance abuse themselves.

Morton spoke about his sobriety in the lyrics of the song “All I Had To Lose“, which appeared on his solo EP “Ether”, released in 2020.
