Frances Bean Cobain celebrates two years sober

Frances Bean Cobain has celebrated her second year sober with boyfriend Matthew Cook on a trip to Oahu, Hawaii.
The 25-year-old daughter of late Nirvana star Kurt Cobain and Hole frontwoman Courtney Love revealed she has battled addiction, like both of her parents, but has come out the other side.
Frances shared the news in a post on Instagram on Tuesday (13Feb18) as she enjoyed a romantic trip with her beau, opening up about the milestone, and why she had kept her recovery private until now.
“I thought I would start this post by using a pure moment in Oahu amongst nature, with my love,” she wrote underneath a video clip of herself featuring a rainbow. “This moment is a representation of who I am on February 13th, 2018. It feels significant here, now because it’s my 2nd sober birthday.
“It’s an interesting and kaleidoscopic decision to share my feelings about something so intimate in a public forum. The fact that I’m sober isn’t really public knowledge, decidedly and deliberately. But I think it’s more important to put aside my fear about being judged or misunderstood or typecast as one specific thing.”
The visual artist and model, who endured a bitter divorce from ex-husband Isaiah Silva last year, didn’t reveal details of her addiction but explained she had opened up about her struggles out of recognition that her experience may be helpful to others.
“I want to have the capacity to recognize & observe that my journey might be informative, even helpful to other people who are going through something similar or different,” she continued. “It is an everyday battle to be in attendance for all the painful, bazaar, uncomfortable, tragic, f**ked up things that have ever happened or will ever happen.”
The brunette shared that negotiating sobriety was an ongoing commitment, but ultimately preferable to being an addict.
“Self-destruction and toxic consumption and deliverance from pain is a lot easier to adhere to. Undeniably, for myself and those around me becoming present is the best decision I have ever made,” she added.
