Brantley Gilbert took his last drink on December 18th, 2011, but that doesn’t mean he’s been totally clean since then.

In a recent interview, he was asked how long he’s been sober.

“To be completely honest and transparent, I have to be respectful to the folks in the recovery community that are absolutely sober. I have to be careful with the definition of sober. I’m California Sober if that makes any sense. I’m a Willie Nelson fan.”

In his case, that means he smokes weed but stays away from everything else.

If you’re struggling with addiction and thinking about following Brantley’s lead, he recommends getting help first.

“I really try to turn people on to the professionals who are trained, [because] treatment is really the only way to go.”
