Sir Anthony Hopkins, aged 82, an actor, and composer, of worldwide renown, whose talents, gifts, and skills on the silver screen, stage and recently, as orchestral composer, is celebrating 45 years of sobriety today, Tuesday, 29 December 2020, and tweeted about it.

Hello everyone. Good morning!

Sir Anthony Hopkins, age 82 tweets video encouragement as he celebrates 45 years sobriety on 29 December 2020, an upcoming birthday on 12-31, and happy upcoming New Year.

Well, a new year’s coming. It’s been a tough year, full of grief and sadness for many, many, many people.

But 45 years ago, today, I had a wake up call: I was headed for disaster. I was drinking myself to death – I’m not preachy – but, ah… I got a message, a little thought, that said ‘do you want to live, or die?’

And I said ‘I want to live.’ And suddenly, the relief came, and my life has been amazing.

And ah… I may have off days and sometimes little bits of doubt, and all that but… all in all I say, ‘Hang in there!’

Today is the tomorrow you were so worried about yesterday.

For young people: Don’t give up. Just keep in there. Just keep fighting.

So be bold, and mighty forces will come to your aid.

And that sustained me through my life.

And that’s all I’ve got to say.

And happy new year!

This is going to be the best year!

Thank you!
