Overview
This groundbreaking exploration from the author of the best-sellingFacing Codependence and Breaking Free unravels the intricate and debilitating dynamics of co-addicted relationships.

Mellody clearly outlines the "toxic" patterns played out by Love Addicts and the unresponsive Avoidance Addicts to whom they are painfully and repeatedly drawn. She shares personal experience and real case histories that

clarify the distinctions between codependence (how our relationship with our self fails) and co-addiction (how our relations with others become unhealthy entanglements)

describe how "love at first sight" can be the first step in the addictive cycle of attraction, fantasy, denial, and obsession

show how childhood experiences of abandonment or engulfment influence our choice of romantic partners, friends, and associates

detail the tango-like way that addicts activate one another& 39;s primary fears and literally "bring out the worst in each other"

hopefully, compassionately, and realistically outline the recovery process

Including Twelve-Step work, exercises, and journal keeping, Mellody& 39;s practical, step-by-step guidelines for change help us face painful realities, acknowledge and disengage from our addictive behaviors, and address underlying symptoms of codependence. The fresh perspective and clear methods in Facing Love Addiction work to comfort and motivate all those seeking to establish and maintain healthy, happy relationships.
