Have you ever had something about yourself that you don’t think is that big of deal, but when you share it, everyone else seems to think it is a big deal?

That’s Mike and me with drinking. Or not drinking, as the case may be.

Our most popular episode of The Kate & Mike Show of 2019 BY FAR was the one we did about Sobriety, Substances, and Choosing to Live Awake (episode 137) in which Mike shared his sordid journey with drugs and alcohol, and I shared mine (not so sordid but still worth mentioning).

That’s why we’re kicking off 2020 with back-to-back episodes on sobriety. Last week we talked with Holly Whitaker about our culture’s f’d up relationship with alcohol and the ways in which the traditional, patriarchal structures of recovery don’t serve everyone.

This week we’re back with an equally powerful episode with memoirist Laura McKowen about her journey with addiction, getting sober, and then falling deeply in love with her sober life.

As Laura shares, she thought that sobriety was a sentence for a sad existence without fun or sex or truly living.

Until her life required her to get sober and discover the truth: that sobriety is an invitation to a truer, more beautiful life, not a sentence.

You don’t have to want to get sober in order to get the gold from this episode, though I would totally cheer you on if you do!

In the episode you’ll hear:

I’m really excited for you to get to soak in the beauty and wisdom of Laura. She’s a gem. So are you.
