I feel both relieved and sad to know that my life-time romantic relationship patterns now have a name; that there's a reason I keep getting on that merry-go-round that always ends in heartbreak for both of us. The light bulb went on when I saw Alanis Morrissette on Oprah's SuperSoul Sunday say that she was a love addict, and it was the first time I heard of it, but I recognized it as my affliction, which is what I've always called it - an affliction. All those years spent in a behaviour I never understood. Now I need a group to go to and can't find one where I live. I've heard that open 12-step AA meetings might be a good place to start. Has anyone else found that helpful?

When I figured out I was a love addict all they had was AA so I went everyday for a long time. There is a lot of wisdom in those rooms. When I talked I did not mention love addiction. I just responded to the topic.
