Chet revealed the news via Instagram on Nov. 19. In the accompanying caption, the "Do It Better" rapper shared his story. "I've been struggling with substance abuse since I was 16 years old. Finally at the age of 24 I decided to get some help," he wrote. "With 50 days of sobriety under my belt, I can honestly say I'm the happiest I've ever been. I'm thankful for my family and everybody that cares about me, including my fans. I've been blessed with the programs of AA and NA which allow me to rise above this disease. I'm learning to accept my faults and be ok with being human. If anybody that sees this struggles with addiction, feel free to reach out. Thank you all for the love and support! GOD IS REAL!!!"
Fans commended him for taking action. "You're amazing!!" one wrote. Another said, "Proud of you for being open about it man!" A third admirer added, "Take it day by day. You are stronger than you know."
