Publisher Comments:

Love addiction manifests in many forms, from Fatal Attraction-type obsessive lust to less extreme but nonetheless psychologically and emotionally harmful forms. The most common of these is staying in a bad relationship because of a fear of being alone-the "I hate you but don'¬?t leave me" relationship. In ADDICTION TO LOVE, recovering love addict Susan Peabody explains the variety of ways this disorder plays out, from the obsessively doting love addict to the addict who can'¬?t disentangle from an unfulfilling, dead-end relationship. Peabody provides an in-depth and easy-to-follow recovery program for those suffering from this unhealthy and often dangerous addiction and explains how to create a loving, safe, and fulfilling relationship.
  • A seminal work on unhealthy and obsessive behaviors in love, and how to change behavior to have a positive relationship. This third edition includes a new introduction and revisions to the text throughout.
  • Some symptoms of love addiction include love at first sight, excessive fantasizing, abnormal jealousy, nagging, and accepting dishonesty.
  • Even relationships with parents, children, siblings, or friends may be addictive-dependency is not always related to romantic love.
  • Previous editions have sold more than 40,000 copies."Love addiction is a three-headed serpent that Susan Peabody adeptly slays. This is the quintessential book for any love addict or counselor needing to fully understand this highly prevalent and complex disorder. Susan detects and dissects aspects of this condition not comprehended in other books of its kind. Recovery is possible. This book makes it possible to take the succinct steps necessary toward a loving and reciprocal long-term intimate relationship."-Sudi Scull, M.F.T., C.N., psychotherapist and nutritionist

    The first edition of this book came out in 1989 so it leans toward a detailed description of the codependent love addict. This little tome also offers a well-thought-out and easy-to-understand recovery program. There are many other good books on this subject, especially the Halpern books, but this is the best overview for a beginner. Susan also has a new recovery workbook which is a companion to the third edition of Addiction to Love. It introduces Susan's new term, "The Ambivalent Love Addict" the best overall descriptive term out there today. For more about Susan's books, including her new memoirs, "Where Love Abides," see her website, brightertomorrow.net
