Married to an Alcoholic Minister – Barbara K – 340

What is it like being married to an alcoholic minister who is beloved of his congregation? How might it cause you to behave in crazy ways?

Today I am sharing with you a talk by Barbara K, recorded in 1993. I listened to this recently and I thought she captured so well the ways in which WE, the partners of alcoholics, can be and act crazier than our alcoholic loved ones.

Our guest, Josh, on episode 324, Recovery Dharma, talked about that program and Refuge Recovery.
