In this week's episode, D.J. talks with fellow podcaster and friend in recovery, Arlina of the ODAAT(One Day at a Time) Chat podcast. Arlina Allen speaks openly about her 23 years of sobriety, as well as her years of active addiction to drugs, alcohol, and men. Arlina goes on to share about early childhood abuse; using drugs and alcohol to numb painful emotions; and what it was like living in insanity. For Arlina, it all came down to a spiritual solution, regardless of the various addictions plaguing her life. She had to start at Step One and fight hard to maintain her sobriety one day at a time.

Arlina and D.J. also talk recovery resources including self-care tips, having chickens in the backyard and using nail art to find solace when thing are feeling overwhelming. Welcome to episode TEN!

Hosted by D.J. Burr, psychotherapist and author of I Just Wanted Love: Recovery of a Codependent, Sex and Love Addict and host of the podcast Journey On: Men Healing from Sexual Abuse & Assault.
