Actor JM de Guzman had been on a pretty long hiatus to give himself some time off to take care of himself.

Even though he has been off the limelight for almost two years now, the actor has been active on his Instagram to update his fans and supporters. On his Instagram account, he would usually post short videos of himself singing and playing his guitar.

But his recent Instagram photo caught the attention of his friends and colleagues. He posted his 2016 certificate of sobriety with the caption: “2 years this December 2017.”

The certificate is his First Sober Year Achievement Award from the Self Enhancement for Life Foundation, Inc.

2 years this december 2017?

This drew several well wishes and congratulatory messages from his friends.

His That Thing Called Tadhana leading lady, Angelica Panganiban, commented: “Nakaka-miss ka, Anthony.” Referring to JM’s character Anthony Lagdameo.

His Kapuso friend, Tom Rodriguez, also expressed his support. Even, ABS-CBN writer Darla Sauler shared that she’s proud of him.

Several directors are also looking for JM’s return. Direk Dan Villegas and Direk Tonet Jadaone had teased everyone of their future plans with the actor.

2015 was a very rocky year for JM. He admitted that he was suffering from anxiety a*****s, bipolar and depression. It was also during this time when he challenged Enrique Gil to a mixed martial arts fight. This came after news of Gil disrespecting then JM’s girlfriend, Jessy Mendiola, during a flight to London. Few months after, Jessy revealed that they have broken up. In 2014, JM also admitted that he already went to rehab to address his substance-a***e problems.
