Episode 3 in the special recovery series is an interview with Laura McKowen. Laura is a mom, writer, and recovery warrior. In this episode you’ll hear:
- Laura’s progressive story of her relationship with alcohol and when she decided it was time to quit.
- We both share stories of when we felt immense shame as mothers around our drinking and the moment we both knew it was affecting our children.
- I ask Laura if she ever has that voice that tells her it might be possible to moderate.
- Laura tells us what she does to stay sober— what she’s tried that’s worked and what hasn’t worked.
Ass kickers, I hope you’re enjoying listening to these episodes as much as I enjoyed recording them with these magnificent women! If you have any specific questions you’d like me to ask the guests, please contact us to let us know!
