Alexander Ludwig Celebrates Five Years of Sobriety

Alexander Ludwig is marking a very special day.

On Sunday (April 23), the 30-year-old actor – best known for his roles in The Hunger Games, Vikings, and Heels - shared a video on Instagram celebrating five years of sobriety.

We’re celebrating two things,” Alexander started. “One is my five years of sobriety birthday, and the other is on this same day three years ago, the day I went on my first date with my wife, which I think is pretty serendipitous.”

“It’s pretty crazy to me that five years ago to the day, I was so lost, so confused and so scared about where my life would go,” Alexander continued. “All I knew was that I had an issue and a problem that needed to be fixed.”

Alexander went on to say that he was posting the video from Austin, Texas where he was celebrating with wife Lauren and his mom.

“I’ve lost a lot of friends to this disease, so many people didn’t make it and I don’t really know why, because there’s so many reasons why that should have been me and not them,” Alexander shared. “I don’t want to make this video as, like, congratulatory to myself — it’s really just for anybody that needs to see this.”

He added, “If you’re struggling, be brave enough to ask for help and take it from me, there really is hope at the end of the road, there really is a light at the end of the tunnel. It’s actually staggering to me how much has changed in my life since I got out until now.”

“It’s amazing what can happen when you decide to love yourself and commit to loving yourself and to growing every day as a human being as opposed to satiating these impulses we all have,” Alexander concluded.
