Today is the day! 20 Years of sobriety. I walked into my first 12 step meeting with a baseball cap on, a huge hangover from the night before and a desire to change my life. One decision to change. And it changed my ENTIRE life. Left: A little over 20 years ago in a hotel in Mexico City a few months before I hit the bottom of alcoholism and cocaine addiction. For my friends who haven’t read my full story – here it is: https://sandisavage.com/story/
Right: A few weeks ago. TODAY I get to celebrate 20 YEARS of SOBRIETY.
I was singing last night at a local coffee shop and was just thinking how grateful I am to #1 – still be alive. #2 that I have my sobriety. I am so blessed to have the life I fought for and dreamed of.
So – what’s happened in those 20 years?
I worked hard to get out of a 13 year career in adult entertainment. I took on 3 jobs after decided I had to get out and heal from the years of addiction and abuse.
I became a Christian in 2003.
I started support groups in 2006 for women who struggle with sex addiction and launched a non profit in 2007 helping women who are in the sex industry.
I met and married my amazing husband Tim Savage.
I survived Breast Cancer. We launched a church plant in South Beach.
I’m writing and recording music.
I get to help people regain their health and be in the best shape they have ever been.
I’m back in school.
Listen. Don’t give up on your dreams. Just go for it.
NEVER GIVE UP. Keep on going. You CAN do it!! No matter what has happened in your life. No matter how old you think you are. No matter how many obstacles seem to be in your way.
KEEP AT IT. The world needs something that YOU have inside of you. That only YOU can contribute. Sort through what that is and GO FOR IT. #recovery #sober #grateful #Florida #StAugustine #beach #waves #ocean #mermaidhair #20years #blessed #nashville #music #love #lifeaftertheindustry
