Renee Leonard Kennedy on Grief in Recovery, Leaving AA, Celebrate Recovery, and Finding God After Atheism
The One Day At A Time Recovery Podcast
by Arlina Allen
7h ago
Today my guest is Renee Leonard Kennedy, the author of “After the Flowers Die: Encouragement for Walking Through Life After Loss.” I have to say, it was really interesting how we connected. Her publicist emailed me to pitch her as a guest, and I read it at a moment when I was really struggling with grief from the loss of my Mom. It was so serendipitous; it really felt like a spiritual experience, kinda like a little wink from God, if you will. I’m always in awe when stuff like that happens, you know? The exact message I needed right when I needed it.   Renee is a lovely woman in long-term ..read more

The One Day At A Time Recovery Podcast
by Arlina Allen
5d ago
Today my guest is Hilary Phelps. If her last name sounds familiar it’s because she’s the sister of Olympic Gold Medalist Michael Phelps!    After 15 years of continuous sobriety, Hilary has decided to tell her story. We had a wide ranging conversation about what it was like to be the sibling of such a public figure, her own achievements, which are very substantial I might add, like being the number 1 ranked swimmer in her age group in the nation, a triathlete, and being a mother to an amazing little boy. We talk about her journey through alcohol abuse, what happened that lead her to ..read more

Today my guest is Peg O’Connor, author of “Higher and Friendly Powers-Transforming Addiction and Suffering”. She has been sober for 34 years, holds Ph.D in philosophy, she is a professor at Gustavus Adolphus College, and a contributor to Psychology Today.    We dig into the premise of her book around where the term Higher Power comes from and what it really means. Her intention is the same as mine, which is to alleviate unnecessary suffering by helping people overcome ideas that may be holding them back from solutions such as the 12 Step program.   That’s actually a good segway ..read more

OC241 Dr. Lida Fatima on Psilocybin Assisted Therapy
The One Day At A Time Recovery Podcast
by Arlina Allen
1M ago
Today my guest is Dr. Lida Fatima. Her mission is to provide psilocybin-assisted coaching for female physician moms to move through past trauma, depression, anxiety, and burnout.   I’m personally fascinated by the research on the use of psychedelics to treat alcoholism and other underlying causes of addiction, such as trauma, depression, and anxiety. It’s not a panacea for everything, and those of us with addiction issues need to proceed with caution; however, the clinical trials at Johns Hopkins and NYU look promising.    I invited Dr. Lida to the podcast to share the pros and ..read more

OC239 Jake Yoder on California Sober, Recovery, and Natural Highs
The One Day At A Time Recovery Podcast
by Arlina Allen
2M ago
Today my guest is Jake Yoder, and we are discussing the fairly controversial topic of marijuana and recovery. Jake shares his experience with it, why he decided to stop and how he did it. We also talk about a spiritual experience he had, harm reduction, and how to have a natural high.   This topic is a particularly complex one. In 12-step programs, there is a heavy focus on counting “sober time” and a lot of talk about complete abstinence over everything. What sober means and what “everything” includes is debatable. However, I do want to point out that the book “Alcoholics Anonymous” is s ..read more
