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”. If you haven’t yet, don’t forget to subscribe on iTunes so you don’t miss out on upcoming episodes.

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.

In this episode I speak to my dear friend Jim. I have known Jim for about 22 years and have seen him go through many challenges with strength and courage. Everything from break ups to the death of a child. However in the midst of all the challenges, there have been valuable lessons, people who showed up in amazing ways, love and even joy and happiness.

I was so grateful to Jim for sharing his experience. I believe there will be many people who will benefit greatly. So with that, please enjoy this episode with Jim!

Peace & love,
