Below Deck Mediterranean’s Captain Sandy Yawn has reflected on the fact she is living a life beyond her wildest dreams as she celebrated being 33 years sober.
The fan-favorite boat captain took to Instagram to open up about the ups and downs she faced in her life while she was battling addiction.
The 56-year-old wrote: ‘It’s been 33 years clean for me. From jails, institutions, car crashes, motorcycle accidents, hospitals, bankruptcy, heart attack & cancer.
‘I felt like a hopeless human being, always in trouble, people turning away from me because I was so destructive. The day finally came when I had my last drink and drug on August 29th 1989.’
The Bravo star continued: ‘My life today is beyond my wildest dreams. If you’re suffering from addiction and want help, call the hotline and ask for help. 1-855-290-0468.
‘God speed to you all. Today I have gratitude! #soberity #clean #sober #godspeed #lifeisgood #dontgiveup #miracles #miracleshappen.’
Along with her post, the beloved mariner shared a 2011 photo of herself looking healthy and strong while hiking through a desert.
Indeed, Sandy is especially grateful for her good health after suffering a heart attack shortly before her 50th birthday in 2014.
Yawn often shares photos of her active lifestyle on Instagram and has since spread the message about heart health, especially for women.
Below Deck airs on Bravo in the US and is available to stream on hayu in the UK.
