Make Some Noise with Andrea Owen

Laura McKowen returns to the show! Laura says, “Much of recovery is about accepting the good and the bad, as well as accepting the contradictions.” She joins me to talk about her sobriety story, how she processed the emotions of sobriety, and how she works with people now to inspire them 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, and the Founder and CEO of The Luckiest Club, a global sobriety support program.

In this episode you’ll hear:

  • Laura shares her sobriety story and how she went from working in advertising and drinking to sober, teacher, coach, and speaker. (3:58)
  • What inspired Laura to write her book, We Are The Luckiest: The Surprising Magic of a Sober Life. (15:08)
    Sober Curiosity: We all have something that shatters the concept of self as we know it. (18:31)
  • Some ways in which a newly sober person can learn to hear and speak their truth, and renew their sense of meaning and purpose. (36:38)
