Jamie Lee Curtis commemorated an extraordinary journey of personal triumph as she reached the significant milestone of 25 years of sobriety.

The Academy Award winner took to her Instagram account on Saturday to share a touching note as she monumentalized her emotional conquest of being "clean and sober" for a quarter-century.

"25 years clean and sober. One day at a time. 9,125 of them," Curtis wrote.

She added, "What's inside, as my old friend Adam sang, is a sense of calm, serenity, purpose and the greatest feeling that I am not alone. That many others share the same disease and solution."


The True Lies star concluded, "For all those struggling with addiction and shame, there are others out here who care. My hand in yours. Our hands in yours. XO JLC."

In addition to the heartfelt caption, Curtis shared a picture of herself cradling a ring engraved with the words "JLC TWENTY FIVE."

In July, Curtis looked back on her previous challenges with opioid addiction in an interview on The Morning Joe.

During that conversation, she described the "worst day was almost invisible to anyone else."

"I'm lucky. I didn't make terrible decisions high or under the influence that then, for the rest of my life, I regret," Curtis said.

She went on to explain, “There are women in prison whose lives have been shattered by drugs and alcohol, not because they were violent felons, not because they were horrible people, but because they were addicts."

"I am incredibly lucky that that wasn't my path," the Haunted Mansion actress added.
