Demi Lovato had a big year in 2012: the pop singer released "Give Your Heart A Break" -- which became her biggest radio hit -- and she starred on "The X Factor USA" as a judge alongside Simon Cowell and Britney Spears. Considering that just 2 years ago the young singer was in rehab battling a bipolar disorder, bulimia and substance abuse, Demi's very-public recovery has been nothing short of inspirational.
On Monday night, Demi took to Twitter to reflect on how far she's come.
She also encouraged her young fans to make smart and healthy decisions as they celebrated New Year's Eve.
We're with you, Demi.

Because NYE <em>does</em> seem like the perfect night to <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HjAuNhufppM">dress up like hipsters and make fun of our exes</a>!
This soft-spoken British singer apparently has "<a href="https://twitter.com/edsheeran/status/284693934742048768">the best time doing absolutely nothing</a>." Dude, we're there (and may or may not bring a guitar, so we're ready if you feel like serenading us with a special rendition of "<a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/29/one-direction-little-things-ed-sheeran-new-single_n_2037860.html">Little Things</a>").
But only if it involves a giant room filled with balloons. Obvs.
She took her friends and family on a <a href="http://instagram.com/p/T4LXJunTSr/">sleigh ride</a> this past weekend. We would like to ride one of those into our NYE party this year. Thanks.
While you may not get a midnight kiss -- that's reserved for his <a href="https://twitter.com/eleanorjcalder">adorable</a> girlfriend, Eleanor -- Louis seems like fun, and won't get you into trouble like Harry (when he walks in...). The evening also probably won't end with a trip to <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QvY4k-5DDKE">Nando</a>'s, like it would with Niall.
Willow could definitely help you put together the most awesome New Year's Eve outfit EVER.
We'd venture to guess the night would probably involve taking <a href="https://twitter.com/DirectionKress/statuses/227785414600187904">selfies</a> in the bathroom and <a href="https://twitter.com/jennettemccurdy/status/103936536155926529">eating grilled cheese</a> at some point. Sounds good to us.
We hear he's partying (<a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/12/30/justin-biebers-abs-are-on-full-display-photo_n_2385394.html">possibly shirtless</a>) by the beach this year. We're in.
We are up for any party that involves crazy costumes -- and, looking at <a href="http://www.gleeksource.com/GleekSource/files/c0/c04293ff-4107-4ae1-9a22-6a333fec2848_580_434.jpg">his history</a>, we have a feeling he'd be into it, too.
You have to admit Miley has had a <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/12/20/miley-cyrus-haircut-hair-style-photos-pictures-2012_n_2338751.html?utm_hp_ref=style&ir=Style">pretty badass year</a>, with her engagement and crazy punk-rock style transformation. But more importantly, the evening would almost certainly involve more than one midnight kiss -- <a href="http://www.vh1.com/celebrity/2012-12-21/in-defense-of-dog-smooching-the-10-cutest-photos-of-miley-cyrus-kissing-her-pups/">from her adorable dogs</a>.
