One Day At A Time Recovery Podcast Host Arlina Allen- Page 22
The Sobriety Diaries
Today Arlina Allen is a successful podcast host, speaker and life coach. She uses her 27 years of personal recovery to help others get sober, stay sober and go deeper. In Arlina’s words: There was a time when I thought I was just a fun party girl. To say I was proud of the fact that I could drink men twice my size under the table was an understatement. For a long time, I had A LOT of fun. There were lots of wild nights, lots of men, lots of crazy stories... My tag line: If it was in a bottle, a bag, or blue jeans, I was doin' it! My story really begins from April 23, 1994, my fist clean and sober day when I finally admitted that I had to stop using everything, including weed.

005 - Arlina Allen, One Day At A Time: From Mantra to Mission
What a Feeling!
Today, Arlina Allen is a Life & Recovery Coach, the founder of Sober Life School, and host of the award-winning recovery podcast "The One Day At A Time Podcast". But life did not begin so rosy for Arlina as she experienced trauma at a very early age. Much of her early quest to be noticed and loved helped feed her search for love and acceptance later in life through alcohol & drugs. Arlina & Archie, who both began their recovery journey in a 12-Step program, talk openly about their experiences in Alcoholics Anonymous and how waiting until someone has completely crashed and burned might not be best option for all people. Arlina also shares about what it was like leaving her job in corporate America to truly live her life’s purpose – one that has her living today in 100% alignment with her values.

You could be raised by parents who are very nice people and they may not have any drinking or drug use issues. They could be super religious. But that doesn’t guarantee it’s going to save you from drug addiction or alcoholism. It's perfectly acceptable to ask for prayers if somebody is sick. But what happens when you do a repeated bad behavior that you can't seem to control?As children, we don’t really have the power to change our environment that has been created by adults. We have been taught to be fundamentally flawed and that we are all sinners. And sometimes, when our brains have been wired that way, it naturally brings feelings of guilt, shame, and pain – that the only way to numb those is resorting to addiction. On today’s episode, Duane talks to Arlina Allen, host of The One Day at a Time podcast and creator of the Sober Life School. Arlina Allen has been sober since 1994 after living a wild life of drugs, alcohol, and sex. Her tagline at the time was – “If it was in a bottle, a bag or blue jeans, I was doing it!” Alina had quite a rough childhood. She started seeing a shrink at age 9, drinking at age 10, and started smoking weed in junior high. Her parents got divorced when she was young, and she was sexually abused by their neighbor. Growing up, she only had two feelings: guilty and wrong – and she used addiction as her way out of pain. Eventually, this left her feeling lost, full of self-loathing, demoralized, and hopeless. Then she finally reached out to some sober friends who offered her a little bit of hope and safety to be able to look inward.Today, Arlina shares her understanding of how our own natural tendency for negativity and confirmation bias creates a painful feedback loop of continued self-loathing and continued pain, and finally, how reaching out to others can help change that process so we can unpack our baggage, see things more clearly with compassion, and begin to make the changes we want.In this episode, you will hear:How the shame spiral keeps goingUnderstanding confirmation bias, negativity bias, and the brain’s default networkWhat prompted her to finally make that switch to the other sideHow part of the AA’s 12-step program allows you to unload all of your baggageThe role of community in addiction recoveryKey Quotes:[07:11] - “In childhood, we develop these beliefs about who we are, it's like the subconscious mind. It's how we operate from it's like a computer's operating system. We then operate from that presupposition about who we think we are, and what we deserve, and what we're capable of. [07:36] - “Confirmation bias meaning I've made a decision about who I was and what I was worth. And then my subconscious mind then looks for information to support my belief.”[08:16] - "The default mode network is like a thermostat, where you don't get too high, and you don't get too low. We live within this comfort zone."[15:54] - “We do have a negativity bias where we're looking for the problem so that we can solve it so that we can survive. But what we don't realize is that we are forgetting about our assets. We're forgetting to focus on the thousand things that go right every day.”[21:08] - "I just didn't see a way out. I was so self-centered but incapable of self-examination."[25:45] - “The how of recovery is honesty, open-mindedness, and willingness.”[31:54] - “There is no doing this alone because our minds are compromised. And so we need an outside objective, compassionate, third-party perspective on what's going on.”Subscribe and ReviewHave you subscribed to our podcast?

Summary: This podcast chat highlights an important area that many people in the recovery community struggle with and that is low self-esteem. Arlina shares her personal story of being sober for over 26 years and the discontent she always felt in early recovery as she quotes “trying to solve the wrong problems.” Arlina shares how she fell into the trap of thinking “if she only made more money” or “had a better body” that all her problems would go away. Little did she know she was suffering from low self esteem and after embarking on her personal journey to heal it did she find contentment in the areas of her life that were lacking the most; love, finances and health. Arlina found her life’s work in the process of healing her own wounds which she shares in depth with the listeners to help them heal from the unconscious beliefs, shame and guilt that may be holding them back from living their best life. This episode gets deep as we touch upon neuroscience, the law of attraction, healing the unconscious and much more to help shine some light on what’s holding us back so we can thrive in our life in Recovery.
