Demi Lovato has posed with a bong as she wished her followers a 'happy 4/20'.
The 28-year-old singer shared a couple of snaps to her Instagram page in honour of the day, after recently revealing she was 'California sober' following her battle with her addiction.
The recreational use of cannabis is legal in 17 states, including California, where Lovato lives.
Lovato has opened up about her turbulent life in documentary series Demi Lovato: Dancing With the Devil where she said she'd had 'three strokes and a heart attack' after accidentally overdosing.
In the frank docuseries, Lovato also talked about her first relapse in 2018.
"I ended up at a party," she said. "I just so happened to run into my old drug dealer from six years before - and the odds of that happening was crazy - and he had a duffel bag, and I just went to town. I went on a shopping spree."
She admitted: "I tried meth. I mixed it with molly, with coke, weed, alcohol, Oxycontin. And that alone should've killed me.
"It was only two weeks before I was introduced to heroin and crack cocaine. I started using recreationally, and obviously, you can't do that with heroin before you become addicted to it."
Lovato went on to reveal that she now smokes weed and drinks 'in moderation' but is 'done with the stuff that's going to kill me'.
She said: 'I've learned that it doesn't work for me to say that I'm never going to do this again. I know I'm done with the stuff that's going to kill me, right?
"Telling myself that I can never have a drink or smoke marijuana, I feel like that's setting myself up for failure because I am such a black-and-white thinker. I had it drilled into my head for so many years that one drink was equivalent to a crack pipe."
However, in an interview, Lovato warned that what she does isn't necessarily the right choice for others who are going through recovery, warning that it's not 'one-size-fits-all'.
Speaking about her current lifestyle, she told CBS Sunday Morning: "I think the term that I best identify with is 'California sober'.
"I really don't feel comfortable explaining the parameters of my recovery to people, because I don't want anyone to look at my parameters of safety and think that's what works for them, because it might not."
She went on to say: "I am cautious to say that, just like I feel the complete abstinent method isn't a one-size-fits-all solution for everybody, I don't think that this journey of moderation is a one-size-fits-all solution for everybody, too."
