You may know Rob Delaney as the star and co-writer of Catastrophe (which airs on Channel 4 in the UK), or you may know him as one of the funniest people on Twitter, having produced these masterworks:

What many don't know about Delaney, however, is the obstacles he's overcome on the road to success. In his early life, the comedian suffered from depression and alcoholism, culminating in a 2002 incident where Delaney blacked out behind the wheel of a car and crashed it into a building. He was severely injured and arrested. 

Now, 16 years later, he sees that moment as a major influence in his decision to become sober:

Delaney's serious tweet struck a chord. For people who have gone through similar experiences, Delaney's tweet made a real difference.

The comedian's fans were eager to support him.

Twitter users were eager to fight the real enemy: addiction.

Lots of love was thrown around!

Congratulations on your sobriety, Rob! You do amazing work, and inspire others to do the same.
