In this episode of the DadPOD, David Palmer of One Day at a Time, shares his journey through success in school as a graduate of Harvard’s business school, in his career by getting hired at an international ad agency on Madison avenue and owner of local/regional newspapers and at home with his wife and children to the slide into addictions. All of his success came crashing down because he couldn’t control his drinking. Lest we think this is a story just about David, listen and see if any of the things that he identified as contributors to his condition are in your life as well.
During this DadPOD program we discuss:
- David’s story to success
- David’s family issues and how his drinking (which he thought was just his personal issue and that it didn’t affect those around him) affected his family and marriage.
- The power of love…those who will stay with you and be there for you even (and especially) in the darkest days
- His ministry, One Day at a Time, and his desire to help those in addictions, especially those who are teens, in prison and veterans wo come back struggling to readjust in the civilian life.
If you or a loved one is shackled by an addiction we encourage you to get help. Tell someone. Find someone that is safe but don’t go another day without getting the help you need. And, if you notice changes in your children’s/teen’s behaviors don’t be afraid to confront them in a loving and caring way. No one says, “I want to be an addict”. They begin using in order to numb something that is painful, discouraging or hurtful in their lives. We are addictive creatures and apart from God revealing our sinful natures to us and then redeeming us through the gift of grace through Jesus Christ, we can not overcome this on our own.
