We all have addictions of one type or another.  Sometimes we try to hide our addictions from friends and family.  We may pretend to be one way in front of others, but then we act another way when we are alone, engaging in what we think is our "secret" addiction.  One problem with having secret or closet addictions is that we heap confusion on our relationships.  People may be confused as to who we really are.  Plus our "secret" is probably no secret at all.  Everyone is just tip-toeing around the addiction.

Do you have a secret addiction?

No matter what you answered, you will find benefits by listening to Dr. Joan's single basic suggestion that you can try today.  This one practical idea may help you improve the harmony within your family and lift the quality of your relationships at home, at work, at school, or any place else.

If you are stumped by relationship issues, you will want to tune in to hear Dr. Joan describe her opinions for alternative solutions. Follow along as she presents keys for harmony.  What can you lose?  Nothing.  But you may grow closer to those you love and respect. 

A portion of each program is devoted to the reading of Dr. Joan's published stories about human disputes.  She is currently reading from her first novel Gra Im Thu! I Love You!  The story is about two Irish families who find themselves intermarrying, even though they are poles apart in the areas of religion and politics.  Tune in and listen to the story, as the O'Gradys and Gwynns learn to solve their potato encounters and develop a method for turning them into delicious mashed potatoes.  Find out how diversity and harmony can live in the same house.
