Over the last 57 days, Chris Kael has been substance free. The bassist wrote about his struggle via Instagram.
Sober for 57 days. I do this for solely for myself. A great by product is to also show to any of you struggling that you too can do it. Lack of sleep has REALLY been an issue causing me some anxiety for about the last 30 days. It’s almost like my body is subconsciously prepping my body for the upcoming road schedule! Slept from 5 am to 1pm today. At least I slept! Thankful for a job that allows me the time to get this sleep under control and closer to a regular schedule. #HappyEaster #ShitYesSon #Delirious #SoberAsFuck
5FDP fans have reached out to Kael in support of the bassist, some with stories of their own sobriety struggles. Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor even sent Kael a tweet:
Good for you man. I just passed 8+ years. If you ever want to talk, let me know.— Parsimonious Persimmons (@CoreyTaylorRock) 2 aprile 2018
