Hi! I am Sadie. I am a young twenty-something, a mother to a 4 year old girl and 3 year old boy, a partner to a man who I believe is my soul mate, and a friend who is discovering this world for the first time since the age of 12 without the influence of alcohol.
Unfortunately for me, it took losing everything to be able to get my head on straight. When I say everything I mean, I lost my home, my car, custody of my children, I literally lost it all.
I entered into recovery January 1 2018, it hasn’t been perfect, and I have learned a lot, but it has been worth it.
I had a pretty rough childhood filled with abuse and poverty, and I used alcohol to cover that up. I started drinking at age 12 and never looked back since it made me feel better, albeit only temporarily but temporary was enough. I then entered into a relationship with my childrens father that only worsened my addictions due to domestic violence and mental abuse.
It’s been a pretty rough ride, but I’m slowly discovering how good life can be, and figuring out what works to maintain my own sobriety, and what doesn’t and I’ve decided to share that. Don’t get me wrong, life still isn’t all sunshine and rainbows, but my worst day sober is still far better than my best day drunk. I hope you’ll join me on this journey.
About Walking Unjaded
Walking unjaded is sort of a love child to me. For the past few months as my recovery life has gotten better, I have felt kind of.. lost. I felt like I was supposed to share my story, but never knew how. I felt like God was calling me to do something big, something scary, and I couldn’t figure out what
However, I do want to share my story with you. I want to help you and everyone else combat the demons that haunt them and prevent them from becoming sober. I want to show you just how good life can be sober, because I never would have believed this would be my life a year ago. Yet here I am, living this life, and truly enjoying it every minute.
