Reviews about How to Break Your Addiction to a Person: When--and Why--Love Doesn't Work (7):

This book will answer all of your questions concerning love versus addiction. I read this book twice and highlighted so many areas in the book that I could relate to. I bought so many self-help books but this one is by far the best.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who is unsure of their relationship. I was in a very unhealthy relationship for the past 7 1/2 years. I read the book and decided enough was enough.

I am no longer in the relationship. I'm not saying that it's easy but when I find myself missing him or wondering if I did the right thing, I read the parts that I highlighted in the book and know that I did the right thing by letting go.

There was nothing that I was able to do any different to save this relationship.I realized that he was the one with the problem and there was nothing that I could do about it.

Had I stayed for the sake of not being lonely, in the long run, I only would've been miserable and wasted another 7 1/2 years. And to not be lonely is not a good reason to stay in an unhealthy relationship or any relationship.

I'm only sorry it took me this long to find out but on the flip side at least I did found out and can finally move on.

If you find yourself wondering about your relationship, please get this book. It could be just what you're looking for.

I first devoured this book about 9 years ago & it saved my life, literally! I could not leave a very sick abusive man, even though I was terrified of him, even when he degraded me, even when it made my hate myself & feel disgusted at my seeming powerlessness to leave. This book SAVED my LIFE! I was able to break my lifelong patterns of choosing women haters, violent batterers, charming seductive snakes whose only goal was to drive me insane & break me in pieces emotionally until I had NO self-worth, self-respect, NO SELF at all left. Why do we stay hooked in harmful relationships? It's not always physically abusive, sometimes they are emotionally & verbally abusive to the point that you no longer know what is real. You want so badly to believe the lies & excuses, hold onto the hope that your lover will change if you just love them enough, I know he really loves me, she/he's just having a bad day, etc. If you've ever been in any type of relationship that you knew or suspected was harmful but STILL could NOT leave, you know the shattering pain of addiction to a person.
This book tells one how they became addicted & why, how to recognize a bad relationship, how to deal with the power & guilt trips your partner uses to keep you hooked, that jealousy & possessiveness do NOT mean love, how to get through the breakup without going back, & how to break this pattern for good! I could have gone through years of expensive therapy & still not received the exact help or understanding that I needed to set myself free from addictive relationships. I just bought a new copy of the book--it is timeless, worth much more than the cover price of...(therapy could cost thousands, take years & have less results). I recommend getting at least 2 because you won't want to share & we always know at least one person trapped in addictive relationships. You're worth it, right? :-)

I like the description of the ways relationships can be addictive and some practical advice on easing the breakup, yet I miss one very important part - how to actually ease up on the infantile neediness(how to do the internal work), so one won't be attracted to these kind of relationships in the first place.The author writes in the page 212:
"The basis of my own approach is that the addiction is best stopped through a lot of thinking about it in the form of recognizing its infant nature and using this recognition to keep Attachment Hunger from dominating."
This doesn't sound like a good solution to me. Knowing the problem doesn't translate into fixing it.
I recommend reading this book, but you will need others as well.

The author focuses on emotional problems caused by lack of connection to your mother as an infant. What about relationship issues caused by emotional abandonment from a father? They are briefly mentioned and then dismissed. Don't try to tell me lack of emotional support from a father doesn't have lasting effects on a daughter. My mother was (and is) more then amazing. It my father who left scares that lasted into adulthood. This book views childhood experiences and relationships from a very narrow perspective. Unless your issue is your mother, don't waste your money. I read the first chapter and then donated this book to the library.

I highly recommend "The Journey from Abandonment to Healing" by Susan Anderson. Susan addresses current/adulthood abandonment wounds as well as childhood wounds from unhealthy families, uncontrollable circumstances, or singular events. She explains the stages of the abandonment experience, helps you gain understanding of what you are experiencing, and then offers exercises to help you heal and move through each stage. She knows and acknowledges that childhood experiences and abandonment wounds are personal and unique and that they are not black-and-white.
