This week I am pleased to introduce you to Laura McKowen. Laura had a long, successful career in public relations and the Mad Men–esque drinking culture of advertising. After getting sober, she quickly became recognized as a fresh voice in recovery, beloved for her soulful and irreverent writing online and in print. She now leads sold out retreats and courses, teaching people to how to say yes to a bigger life. Laura is the author of the bestselling memoir, We Are The Luckiest: The Surprising Magic of a Sober Life.

This discussion dives into the clarity and potential that can be unearthed when living a sober life. We talk about our intentions behind drinking, and the many messages that we’ve received around alcohol over the years.


  • Emotional pain is a sign of function rather than dysfunction
  • We are one hard decision away from reclaiming our sovereignty
  • What’s below what you numb?
  • The culture of drinking
  • The truth about lying
  • Normalizing alcohol
  • Why alcohol is the one drug we have to explain why we “aren’t drinking”
  • In discomfort you will find your answer
  • Co-dependency, people-pleasing and sobriety
  • What is it like to be fully embodied?
  • Can you sit with yourself?
