Let us not confuse love addiction with codependency. Love addiction demands no contact. But codependency is different. In that case the relationship can often be saved if both people enter recovery together. I just got this post from a new member.
I need some help and advice. I have read a lot ob books such as "Women who Love too much and why they keep waiting for him to change" (Revolutionary for any love addict) I have read Pia Melodys books on codependance and Love Addiction. I'm now reading the "Surviving Withdrawl The Breakup Book for Love Addicts" I start counseling on the 30th with a Love Addict Therapy Specialist. Im also joing S.L.A.A. but my question is how do you heal from love addition when your POA is your husband and you have a 4 year who loves his father. I mean do I have to divorce and break up our home? This will destroy my son. I DESPRATELY want to stop this addiction but I dont want my son to be a casualty. I would love to hear from anyone who is beating this addiction while still married or is that possible.
Here is a book for the spouse of an addict. Let me know what you think and consider setting up a session with me. I specialize in married couples who want to stick it out. I have helped many families make it through recovery. Here is my website
