He wrote in the caption:

Kennedy had previously announced he was nine months sober during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live in March. After host Andy Cohen shared a clip from the show of Kennedy and Leviss fighting over his drinking, he explained:

“I think because of all the drinking I was doing and stuff, I was really hiding away from my true emotions. And just blaming whatever I wanted to get out the easy way, do you know what I mean? … I have gone to AA meetings and stuff since then. I’ve really taken hold of my life and trying to change it for the better and change our relationship for the better.”

James isn’t the only celeb enjoying sober life lately — Miley Cyrus has also recently spoken up about her sober journey. The popstar described her “love” for the lifestyle choice, but acknowledged that it’s sometimes difficult because of “that stigma of ‘you’re no fun.'” Actually, in our book it seems more like all the cool kids are sober these days! 

We commend James on the amazing accomplishment!
