YES! is all i can say when i hear that Gucci Mane is sober, and happy about his sobriety.
During an appearance on ESPN’s “His & Hers,” Gucci explained that what led him to sobriety was the decision to not ever return to prison. He added that sobriety has gifted him with a clearer mind and boosted confidence.
“To ensure that I don’t come back into this prison I’m just gonna be totally sober,” Gucci Mane said of his thought process. “I don’t have any time to make any more mistakes. I want to jump every hurdle that’s in front of me. And it takes me to have a clearer mind. I know my weaknesses. And being sober, it’s like a big strength for me … It’s easy to me. It’s an extravagant lifestyle I live. And to me it’s kinda being even more cocky. I love to tell somebody ‘Hey listen, I don’t do drugs. I’m sorry baby, but I don’t want anything to drink. I’ll take a water.’… I’m proud of doing it. I like doing it. I hope people follow my example.”
