Facing Love Addiction : Giving Yourself the Power to Change the Way You Love Paperback
Pia Mellody, author of "Facing Codependence" and "Breaking Free" turns her attention to the toxic experience of a co-addicted relationship.
She argues that co-addiction and co-dependence, often confused with one another, are not the same thing - co-dependence is about how a relationship with oneself fails, whereas co-addiction is the result of an unhealthy entanglement with another.
The book explores in detail the dynamics, the symptoms and the stages (from attraction to obsession) of a co-addicted relationship, and outlines a practical recovery process for the love addict.
