Dax Shepard took to Twitter to celebrate a dozen years of sobriety by sharing a sweet message about his wife, Kristen Bell, and their two daughters, Lincoln, 3, and Delta, 1.

"12 years ago today I came out of my last toxic, life threatening stupor," he wrote. "I now have a wife & babies & some self-esteem #gratitude #promises" he wrote.

The ‘Parenthood’ actor has frequently been open about his substance abuse struggles.

Shepard, 41, married actress Kirsten Bell, 36, in October 2013 after dating for six years.

"Our relationship wasn't perfect," Bell told Entertainment Tonight in November 2015. "We had a couple years of fighting and of growing pains and hating each other, then loving each other and going to couples therapy and we worked it out. ... We earned each other."
