Pete Davidson — “Saturday Night Live”‘s resident “young person” — opened up in an Instagram post about his newfangled sobriety.
The 23-year-old comedian, who has been kind of AWOL “SNL” and social media wise, wrote in a post that he’s sober for the first time in eight years, and he’s never been happier.
Just wanted to let you guys know I’m okay. I know I’ve kinda been missing, on social media and on the show. I quit drugs and am happy and sober for the first time in 8 years. It wasn’t easy, but I got a great girl, great friends and I consider myself a lucky man. I’ll always be here for you guys, I promise. Remember to never give up hope because sometimes that’s all we got. We are a family and I appreciate all your love and support. It’s nice to be back in action ❤️

Oh, P.S., the “great girl” he’s talking about is Larry David’s daughter, Cazzie. Noice!
Davidson had previously opened up about his marijuana use, and how he initially started using weed to treat his Crohn’s disease.
If you’re happy, I’m happy, random comedian. Congratulations!
