How Do I Make the Decision to Stop Drinking? with Laura McKowen


We all have vices. For some of us, it’s eating fried food, biting our nails or binge-watching bad reality TV. But how do we figure out if the things we find comfort in have become a problem? This week, we talked with author, speaker and teacher Laura McKowen, who shared her advice and the surprising magic she found in living a sober life.
