Spencer T Open Talk – Episode 217

An Al-Anon open talk presented by Spencer T, host of The Recovery Show, in September, 2017. The talk has the “traditional” structure: What was it like? What happened? What is it like now?

It includes reflections on:

  • Learning at a young age that it was my responsibility to “fix” everyone's problems.
  • Learning codependent behavior — that I could not be happy unless everyone around me was happy.
  • What happens when these behaviors meet up with alcoholism? (Hint: it's not pretty.)
  • How long did it take before I finally realized I needed help? And that Al-Anon might be the place to find it?
  • What did early recovery look like for me?
  • How did I find an answer to that question that plagues so many of us: “Should I stay or should I go?”
  • What did the steps look like when I first encountered them? What do they mean to me now?
  • How has recovery helped and supported me in all aspects of my life?
