Mandy Alexis was a functioning cocaine addict for 16 years, and is now 3.5 years clean. Her relationship with drugs started way before that though. At 12 she tried weed for the first time, by 14-15 she was experimenting with mushrooms and acid and by 16, ecstasy was added to the list…all these mixed with alcohol.
Mandy Alexis has completely reinvented herself and her life. She went from an addict who carried a lot of trauma and pain, to someone who has healed many wounds and has chosen to break the generational cycles.
She has created a lifestyle where she can take her job with her, and Mandy Alexis is now living in Nicaragua and where she continues to heal, grow and co-create with the universe. She wants to be an inspiration to people and spread the belief that no matter how long they have been one way, they can redesign themselves and their lives to whatever they desire.
