Lucy Hale marked one year of sobriety last month.

The “Hating Game” star told her Instagram followers in an “alternative Valentine’s Day post” on Tuesday that she has abstained from alcohol since January 2022.

“This is a post about self-love and about the greatest thing I’ve ever done,” the actress, 33, captioned a photo of a pink cake covered in sprinkles. “On January 2, 2023 I celebrated one year of sobriety.

“While this journey has mostly been private, I felt compelled tonight to let anyone who is struggling know that you are not alone and you are loved,” she concluded.

Hale’s “Pretty Little Liars” co-stars shared their support, with Shay Mitchell and Sasha Pieterse both commenting with emojis.

Hale, who credited alcohol with helping her become a “social butterfly,” noted, “I’m just always trying to surround myself with better people and be the best version of myself possible.”

Last month, she spoke about the “picky … standards” she has for the romantic partners in her life.

The “Truth or Dare” star shared her “non-negotiables” on a January episode of “Broad Ideas With Rachel Bilson,” clarifying that she has not been in a committed relationship “for years and years.”

Hale said, “I refuse to believe that’s not out there. … I just have to be patient.”
