Publisher's Summary

You're trying to get over your ex, yet you're still in touch and have ended up being his or her backup plan. Maybe you haven't left yet, but you want to and just don't know how. Maybe you're tired of doing the lather, rinse, repeat of getting back together and winding up back at square one. It's time to cut contact.

The No Contact Rule is an inspiring guide to extinguishing the temptation to stay in touch or to keep engaging, helping you to reclaim your sense of self and move on to a healthier relationship. Through her popular blog Baggage Reclaim, Natalie Lue has helped thousands of people break free from unhealthy relationships and breakups after using No Contact to kick a toxic relationship and transform her life.

Discover what NC is and how to do it, how to break an unhealthy cycle, and how to navigate various situations from Facebook to pesky texts, working together, sharing a child, or feeling trapped by your feelings and thoughts. Cut contact and put the focus on you. By treating you with the love, care, trust, and respect you deserve, this could be one of the best decisions you've ever made.

    "The friend you need!!!"

    When you are going through a breakup and vulnerable those who love you can't always be straight with you. This book is what you need to hear. It is the hard truth you need but also sage advice. You don't necessarily need to cut contact to take something from this book because she knows all of the bullshit you are trying to work through.
    She does a great job of explaining everything in a way that is practical and understandable. She cannot tell you how YOU need to go about moving on, she just frames what you are going through in ways that will give you perspective.

    If you are struggling with the end or soon-to-be-end of any relationship, buy this book and put on repeat!

    "Repetitious, but overall a good read"

    Although this book endlessly repeats itself regarding how and why not to contact your ex, this is the one instance I think it's necessary.

    Story
    "Ok, but a bit repetitive"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes - it's good if you are struggling with a break up and need to know you;re not the only one who goes through this stuff! It talks alot about why you shouldn't contact them, but kind of lacks things to do instead of contacting them other than 'going out with friends' which isn't always what you feel like doing.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Just summarises and repeats what has already been said (quite a few times) already.


    Have you listened to any of Lucy Price-Lewis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Did The No Contact Rule inspire you to do anything?

    It just reassured me that how I feel is normal and OK. I could relate to many of the things she talked about.

    "Guides you through every reason to stay no contact"

    Loved the narrator truly puts you in a frame of mind that makes you think before you make a move that may hurt you but love that she is tough love but at the same time understanding and really knows the feeling behind the actions. Her words stay with you which helps you realize the reasons to stay out of toxic relationships. Makes you finally put yourself first knowing it really is the right thing to do. No matter how hard, no judgment because we all may make mistakes but we know we are not alone and we are not perfect. We are human. Thank you ☺

    "good story but....."
    What made the experience of listening to The No Contact Rule the most enjoyable?

    it wasnt enjoyable because of the narrator. I could handle listening to her no longer than maybe 20 minutes at a time. Its a Shame.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I really like the story.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    how many cups of coffee did the narrator have????? Talks way too fast. Listening to her was torture.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I wanted to, but couldnt. That pitch, that voice.....too much Speed!
