Ivan Moody is seven months sober


Ivan Moody opened up about his struggles with alcohol addiction during a brand new interview with the WEBN radio station.

Saying that it's been "seven months" since he stopped drinking, Ivan Moody admitted that he was "back and forth for a while; I'd do three months, then relapse." He added: "Recovery, you have to be commited; it's an honest program, and I wasn't being honest with myself at the time. I'm very, very proud of the progress I've made."

Ivan Moody went on to credit several of his friends and musical peers with helping him get through some of his darker moments. "Judas Priest's Rob Halford is the person that I called a lot of the time when I was in recovery," he revealed. "I think he's been sober now for going on 40 years — maybe, I think, a little longer than that; I could be wrong. But Hatebreed's Jamey Jasta another one. Jamey's been sober now for 18 years; Korn's Jonathan Davis; so on and so forth. So these were all people that I looked to when I was struggling, and I was very, very lucky and blessed to have them on my team."

Ivan Moody said that there has been a significant improvement in his physical and mental health since he gave up the bottle. "I feel I took a nap for about four years and I woke up one day and I saw somebody else wearing my skin," he explained. "It was like Rip Van Winkle; it was really odd. I feel better than I felt in years, which is really… it's a plus."
