The real Slim Shady – who has been open about his years of addiction – has marked the date each year with a similar photo.

He ended his years of drug abuse on April 20, 2008.

The rapper, who is currently isolating at his mansion in Detroit, MI with his daughter Hailie, was addicted to prescription pills Vicodin – he even had a tablet tattooed on his left arm, Valium and Ambien.

The following year, after a five-year hiatus at the peak of his career, a period that included a 2007 methadone overdose, the rapper released the album Relapse, his first attempt at recording after getting clean.

In 2010, Eminem took another leap forward with the companion album Recovery.

“It’s no secret I had a drug problem,” he told Vibe magazine in 2009. “If I was to give you a number of Vicodin I would actually take in a day? Anywhere between 10 to 20. Valium, Ambien, the numbers got so high I don’t even know what I was taking.”

Eminem went to rehab in 2005 to get treatment for his addiction to sleeping pills.

But in 2007, he spiraled out of control again and was hospitalized for a methadone overdose.

It wasn’t until 2008 that Eminem decided he wasn’t about to lose himself to drugs.

According to the New York Times, he checked himself into rehab early that year and started the full 12-step program of a recovering addict.

Now, 12 years sober, Eminem remain closer to his daughter, Hailie Jade Scott Mathers, 24, more than ever before.

He recently praised his daughter on social media for graduating from Michigan State University.
