It's 30 years to the day since Sir Elton John officially became sober.

The superstar celebrated the milestone by sharing a pair of messages and photos on his social media account.

"If I hadn’t finally taken the big step of asking for help 30 years ago, I’d be dead. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all the people who have inspired and supported me along the way," he wrote.

John also shared photos of a cake shaped like the number 30, a 30-year recovery chip and a table filled with cards from friends and family.

The latter photo was accompanied by the caption: "Reflecting on the most magical day having celebrated my 30th Sobriety Birthday. So many lovely cards, flowers and chips from my sons, David, friends in the Program, staff at the office and in our homes. I’m truly a blessed man."
