Cheryl Burke is celebrating four years of sobriety.

The "Dancing with the Stars" pro shared the news in a TikTok on Sunday. In a video set to Billie Eilish's "Bad Guy," Burke wrote, "Realizing I just celebrated 4 years of... MY SOBRIETY ๐Ÿ™."

The dancer's comments were flooded with support and congratulatory remarks.

The post comes after Burke opened up about her struggles with her sobriety journey in an interview with "Good Morning America" last week. She admitted that drinking has been on her mind "more than normal," and that she had sought support from her therapist as a result.

"With the sobriety, it's hard for me to be around people who may have had a few drinks," Burke told "GMA." "I tried going out a few weeks ago with a couple of girlfriends, and I just know that I know my limit ... If I'm not conscious, if I'm not intentional about it, I will easily pick up a drink."

While speaking with "GMA," the dancer also discussed her divorce from actor Matthew Lawrence, her husband of nearly three years, and how she is coping.

"I think people tend to think that my life is perfect -- and you know, through this divorce that I'm still going through, there's a lot of ups and downs, but I have to put myself first," she said. "I have to put my sobriety first."
