We are honored and blessed to bring you our podcast! In this first episode, we discuss what the name “Odomtology” means and how it came about. It is a question we get quite frequently, so we address it and put it out there for everyone in the podcast! Next, we have some really great recovery material in our “Hope and Healing Feature.” One of the things we are trying to do with the podcast is to have a place and a forum for questions people may have involving recovery. Bob tells his story and what differentiates an alcoholic from a “hard drinker.” For the longest time, I would see people that were able to put down the drink or drugs with ease and would wonder why I could not do that. I came to realize that alcohol (and drugs) had a different effect on me than on my peers. This podcast really explains it in an easy-to-understand way.
Next, on our “Recovery Today” segment, we talk about the often controversial topic of medication in sobriety. We deal with the subject of someone telling another person they are not sober because they take certain medications. It is so important to remember that the only person that can tell you that you are not sober, is yourself, or a qualified medical professional. The twelve step groups often get in to trouble when they venture down these lines, and people start giving advice and guidance they are not qualified to do. Anyways, if you’ve ever had a question about this topic, our “Recovery Today” segment covers this.
