Josh Brolin is celebrating five years of sobriety, can report.

To celebrate, the actor, 50, shared a personal story of one of the lowest points of his life in an epic rant on his Instagram page.

"Drunk: when you think you're having a rip roaring time and the next morning you wake up and your brain has broken into a frenzied beehive and your body is shattered shards of sharp glass desperately searching for what fits where and your spirit is being eaten by worms with great white bloodied teeth and your heart has shriveled into a black prune churning your intestines to the point where dysentery feels attractive and you can't remember anything you did so you roll out of bed over last night's urine and you dial your best friend's phone number because you recall him lifting you over his head, your whole self, before you hit and broke through the drywall and, you think, a large aquarium and the phone on the other end rings and he picks it up, that clambering for a phone, the clumsiness of a hardline, and you say: "What did I do last night?!" and he answers, after a great pause: "...Dude..."

As has reported, Brolin entered rehab for substance abuse in November 2013, just a few weeks after he allegedly got into a drunk fight with a man at a bar in Santa Monica, Calif.

Brolin has a history of drunken and disorderly conduct.

He was arrested for a drunken brawl in a Shreveport, Louisiana bar in July 2008, and in December 2004, just four months after he married actress Diane Lane, Brolin was arrested on a misdemeanor domestic battery charge when Lane called 911 during a fight that got physical.

The two would eventually divorce in 2013, after eight years of marriage.

Since his stint in rehab, Brolin swears he is a new man. He has been married to entrepreneur Kathryn Boyd since 2016. In November, the couple welcomed their first child together, a daughter named Westlyn Reign Brolin.
