Cheryl Burke is determined to continue pursuing sobriety

“The interesting thing about sobriety is that it’s not always a perpendicular path of progression & like most things in life it comes with rough patches,” the dancer continued. “The difference in sobriety is that I have more awareness around each struggle for example seeing people for who they are (the good, the bad, & the ugly) from people who have been a part of my life for decades, close friends, coworkers, family members, acquaintances, etc.”

Cheryl went on to say that since pursuing sobriety, she’s learned to pacify herself in other healthier ways. She no longer needs alcohol or other substances to numb her pain. However, the thought does cross her mind now and then. And when it does, she’s incredibly grateful for the support network that keeps her focused.

Not even her recent divorce could shake her

But on top of that, she also went through a difficult divorce from actor Matthew Lawrence. The Boy Meets World actor moved on from the split rather quickly and is now dating TLC singer Chilli.

No matter what life threw at her, Cheryl Burke was determined to keep going; and she doesn’t need alcohol or substances to do it. Fans couldn’t be prouder of the dancer.
