Topic: Living with Unresolved Problems

Welcome to Odaat Chat, my name is Arlina and I’ll be your host. In case you didn’t know, ODAAT stands for “one day at a time”. I named it after my favorite 12 step group that meets daily, which is how we do recovery, one day at a time.

You might be wondering the purpose of the podcast, and what I can tell you is that besides wanting to clear up a lot of misconceptions about addiction and recovery, I also wanted to share the teachers, ideas and exercises that have helped me on my own journey over the last 22 years that fall outside the parameters of 12 step groups.

The thought for today comes from something shared on IG, which says “Never let your fear decide your future”.

So, in this episode I’ll be chatting with Jana.  We had a long intimate talk covering a wide range of topics, including the repercussions from a DUI years ago, her moment of clarity, rehab and living in a recovery house. We do talk a lot about God and her religious faith, but don’t let that scare you off because we also talk about dating in sobriety, love and sex and some other fun stuff.

Before we get started, I just wanted to say thank you for connecting with us! If you haven’t yet, please visit odaatchat.com and read “Sharing the Secret” to find out more about who we are and how we can help.

If you want to share your thoughts and opinions, please feel free to leave your comments here.

And with that, please enjoy this episode with Jana!

Peace & Love,
