In this episode, I talk with Stephanie Curtis about what it was like to marry young, leave the marriage, and marry again to an alcoholic husband.
Stephanie recounts her days in a marriage where Budweiser was the mistress, and how she made the decision to leave the marriage and work on her own recovery from codependency.
For years Stephanie fought desperately to save her husband, her family, and herself from the overwhelming destructive power of alcoholism, addiction, and abuse. Ultimately, she realized that in her attempts to lift him up, she was burying herself. The only way to find peace and protect her family was to redefine them completely. Now, as a single mom of two, she chips away at the armor she welded on over the years as protection. And hopes her story provides light to those cowering in the darkness of addiction - both the alcoholics and the unseen heroes - the spouses.
