Actor Colton Haynes is celebrating three years of being drug and alcohol free. He shared photos of the celebration on his Instagram.

The photo was captioned "🎂 3 🎂"

Haynes initially revealed that he'd been six months clean in March 2019.

Before this, he'd been spiraling out of control with his substance abuse.

He told Attitude magazine:

"In 10 years, there were maybe 25 days I didn't drink. I remember when I started, it was a couple glasses of wine, and it regressed into really dark times."
"I used to blame it on my anxiety or depression issues, but really the root of all my problems was the alcohol and drugs."

It's impressive he's done so well to remain sober.

Haynes first found widespread fame on 2011's Teen Wolf.

He later got a role as Green Arrow's sidekick, Roy Harper on the CW show Arrow.

After working to get sober, Haynes has been out of the spotlight, but the work continues on his recovery journey.

Not everyone understood the meaning of Haynes' Instagram post.
