?Frances Bean Cobain Opens Up About Struggle With Addiction

Frances Bean Cobain has publicly addressed her struggle with addiction for the first time. The 25-year-old revealed that yesterday (February 13) marked the second anniversary her sobriety.

In a personal Instagram post, she discussed her battle with “self destruction and toxic consumption,” noting that she had kept it deliberately private until now.

“But I think it’s more important to put aside my fear about being judged or misunderstood or typecast as one specific thing,” she wrote. “I want to have the capacity to recognize & observe that my journey might be informative, even helpful to other people who are going through something similar or different. It is an everyday battle to be in attendance for all the painful, bazaar, uncomfortable, tragic, fucked up things that have ever happened or will ever happen.”

She elaborated on the evolution she has undergone, saying that “becoming present is the best decision I have ever made.”

“As cheesy and cornball as it sounds life does get better, if you want it to,” she concluded. “I’ll never claim I know something other people don’t. I only know what works for me and seeking to escape my life no longer works for me.”

She is the daughter Hole frontwoman Courtney Love and late Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain, both whom publicly struggled with drug addictions.
