Nigerian rapper Iceberg Slim has taken to social media to celebrate two years of him without drinking alcohol.
In an Instagram update, the rapper admitted that the journey was not planned, and that it all started just as a personal challenge.
The rapper could, however, succumb to the temptation tonight if he decides to “commemorate this milestone with a drink.”
“Two years ago, I decided to stop drinking alcohol. Many people asked questions, while many had assumptions as to “Why?”. The truth is, I woke up one day and decided to challenge myself. I said to myself “Self”, and I replied “Yes?”, how long do you think you can go without drinking alcohol?!
“It’s one of those challenges like when you try to get to the microwave at 00:01 right before the BEEP, or like when you’re throwing a piece of paper in the trash from across the room, and you do the countdown like you’re in the NBA Finals. There are no rewards for these self-imposed challenges, just the self-gratification of “Ahhh, I did it”.
“I first challenged myself to a month of no alcohol, and once I reached that milestone, I then said 3 months, then 6, then a year, and now it’s been 2 years. Thinking if I should commemorate this milestone with a drink.”
