In this week’s episode Laura Jones of Blackbird coaching joins me to offer advice and insight for people who have quit alcohol and are having relationship difficulties because their partner has not.
During the interview we talk in depth about communication, the importance of support, and the crucial task of negotiating.
Most importantly we talk about how incredibly difficult it is for someone who has quit alcohol, and then has to face gut-wrenching decisions because someone they love dearly no longer shares the same values.
It’s a tough, tough subject, and I hope that Laura and I have done it justice.
Other Nuggets Mentioned Throughout the Podcast
The quote that Laura referred to by Anais Nin:
“Love never dies of a natural death. It dies because we don’t know how to replenish its source, it dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds, it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishing, but never of natural death.”
