Chet Hanks, also known as Chet Haze, has officially declared himself 50 days sober — which is SUCH an amazing accomplishment!
The son of Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson posted an Instagram video letting the world know of the silent struggle he's endured with substance abuse for the last eight years of his life.

Unfortunately, Star Magazine was planning to expose all of his problems to the world, so Chet took matters into his own hands with the clip he uploaded!
He captioned it:
"I've been struggling with substance abuse since I was 16 years old. Finally at the age of 24 I decided to get some help. With 50 days of sobriety under my belt, I can honestly say I'm the happiest I've ever been. I'm thankful for my family and everybody that cares about me, including my fans. I've been blessed with the programs of AA and NA which allow me to rise above this disease. I'm learning to accept my faults and be ok with being human. If anybody that sees this struggles with addiction, feel free to reach out. Thank you all for the love and support! GOD IS REAL!!!"
This is SO amazing for him!! Way to battle your inner demons and succeed!
We're sure his parents are ecstatic for their son's lifestyle change! Congrats, Chet!!!
