Zoleka Mandela celebrates 12 years of sobriety


Zoleka Mandela celebrates 12 years of sobriety.

Nelson Mandela’s granddaughter Zoleka Mandela is celebrating 12 years of sobriety this year and couldn’t be more proud of herself. Nothing is as satisfying as seeing the results of your efforts on eradicating a certain vice that you have steadily worked on for a long time, and Zoleka can attest to this.

In the current climate of societal addiction to alcohol and drugs, seeing celebrities open up about their experiences is inspiring, since it sends a strong message to the general public.

The mother of 6 is reflecting back on 12 years of not touching alcohol, or any substance abuse. Twelve years ago, Zoleka decided to change her life completely by embarking on a journey of sobriety.

Taking to her Instagram Zoleka posted a picture of herself sucking a cigar with a lengthy and inspiring caption.

This image of me sucking on a cigar (10yrs ago) is an abominable reminder of my smoking days, had my last cigarette in 2012 and my first one at the age of 13. I had my first drink at the age of 9 and my last one and the last cocaine binge at the age of 30.
I’m so excited about celebrating my 12th year of SOBRIETY on the 11th of August, I literally can’t wait!!!  #NeverTooLateToRewriteYourLifeStory  #WhenHopeWhispers  #ZolekaMandela #ZolekaMandelaFoundation
