Overview

Are you under a spell — a love spell? Turns out, millions of people are — but it’s usually more serious than a cheesy love song or sappy ending to a movie. According to Psychology Today magazine, love is the number one hardest addiction to break. Kicking any addiction to the curb is tough to do, but giving up the dependence of another, along with the life you’ve built together, is even harder.

With How to Stop a Love Addiction, you will learn the three parts of a love addiction: romance, relationships, and sexual addiction. Recognizing your addiction is the first step of any recovery program, but with this book you will learn how to move past feelings of isolation, hidden pain, distrust, depression, inner rage, and rejection. This complete guide to ending and recovering from an obsessive dependence on another will teach you everything you need to know to overcome your bad romance, while giving you the knowledge you need to distinguish intimacy from intensity and avoid drama-driven relationships.

Let this book be your support as you pick up the pieces of your broken heart; use it to help you escape feelings of worthlessness and your impulse to engage in high-risk behavior. As you manage your new image, you will learn how to examine personal fears and myths so you can develop a stronger sense of independence. Filled with tips for properly defining and distinguishing your “wants” and “needs,” this book will teach you how to compartmentalize relationships from other areas in your life so your next breakup won’t result in a breakdown.

This book will walk you through the steps of quitting your love-hate relationship, as you begin to see yourself as you actually are — not as you are with your significant other. You will learn how to tell the difference between sexual attraction and love at first sight, and how to perceive attraction, attachment, and sex in a healthy way. The latest research in How to Stop a Love Addiction will teach you why obsession is often mistaken for love, and how to uncover the true source of your fixation on heartache.

With a comprehensive quiz to help you determine if you are, in fact, addicted to love, this book also provides worksheets while walking you through a proven 12-step program to recovery. Along the way, you will uncover a passion that fills your void and renews your sense of self worth. We’ve spent hundreds of hours interviewing psychologists and other experts to compile the most up-to-date, realistic guide to overcoming your dependence on that crazy little thing called love.
