Stories That Inspire Us, welcomed to the Tuesday, October 25, 2022 episode, Mandy Alexis. Mandy shared her very personal and raw experience and was a functioning cocaine addict for 16 years. She has been clean for more than 3 years! Her relationship and experience with drugs started when she was just 12 years old.
At such an early age of 12, she experimented with weed for the first time. Between the ages of 14-15, she was experimenting with mushrooms and acid and by age 16 ecstasy . . . all these mixed with alcohol.
To say that she has completely reinvented herself is “truly” an understatement. While Mandy takes full responsibility for the choices she made in her life, she shares her story to impress upon others that “we all have the power within us” to change our outside influences.
Mandy realizes she was escaping her reality and that she had to come from a place of loving herself in order to be authentically real, yet gentle and kind to herself at the same time. Setting boundaries was paramount to where she is today. She has changed her mind, body, heart and soul and is now a successful entrepreneur that recently moved to Costa Rica.
It is her hope and desire to share her story in a way that will reflect upon others with a message of hope and the essence to share that hope to inspire others. “You can change unhealthy habits no matter how long you have had them for and create the life that you desire.”
“I want to inspire and help motivate people to heal, grow and live healthy and happy lives. 💖”
