Living Sober online alcohol recovery community Editor in Chief, Mrs D finds her zen in new book "Mrs D is going within"
The NZ Drug Foundation and Matua Raḵi are celebrating the publication of Lotta Dann’s new book as well as Living Sober’s five thousandth member joining the site this month. To mark the occasion, we're giving away several copies of Lotta's memoir.
Now five and a half years sober, Lotta is Living Sober’s online community’s manager and Editor-in-Chief. Her second book, Mrs D is Going Within, published by Allen and Unwin, has just gone on sale.
In the memoir Mrs D, as members refer to Lotta on Living Sober, is finally finding her Zen. But what does that mean? Lotta humorously breaks down how mindfulness is giving shape to her life after alcohol, and shares the practices and strategies she developed for herself, in the hope it may help others too.
