Mike – 9 Years of Sobriety and Service After 8 DUIs and Prison

ODAAT Chat is a podcast (odaatchat.com) where my guests and I talk about all things recovery. We largely focus on unpacking the issues that cause addiction and how it affects us, but also on solutions, including the 12 steps, and the exercises, teachers and ideas that contribute to recovery. There is a lot of exposure of alcoholics and addicts of all kinds from mainstream media that doesn’t seem to be from people who actually experience addiction, and frankly that really bothers me. I wanted to provide a platform so that we can tell our own stories of what it was like, what happened and what it’s like now to bring understanding to those affected by addiction.

Today’s episode is my dear friend Mike. Mike is a really interesting guy with a fascinating story. I’m not going to give it all away in the intro, but what I’ll say is that he is a complex character. From growing up in Alaska, to running wild all over California to prison to a life of sobriety, parenthood and service.

As a friend, Mike has always been willing to help when I’ve asked for it. He is a ton of fun to be around and he has a huge heart. I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I did. Feel free to say hi to Mike at odaatchat.com or on the Facebook page “The ODAAT Chat Podcast”.

And with that, please enjoy this episode with Mike.

Peace & Love,
