Publisher's Summary

Are you unable to leave a love relationship even though it gives you more pain than joy? Your judgment and self-respect tell you to end it, but still, to your dismay, you hang on. You are addicted - to a person. Now there is an insightful, step-by-step guide to breaking that addiction - and surviving the split. Drawing on dozens of provocative case histories, psychotherapist Howard Halpern explains to you:

  • Why you can get addicted to a person
  • Why and how you may try to deceive yourself
  • How you can recognize the symptoms of a bad relationship
  • How to deal with the power moves and guilt trips your partner uses to hold you
  • Why strong feelings of jealousy do not mean you are in love
  • How to get through the agonizing breakup period - without going back

Game changer

Highly recommended for anyone going through the turmoil of a broken heart or a bad relationship. Even people with a decent relationships can understand how to make it better or just to find the person who lost along the way somewhere.

This book helped me so much

I have listened to this book over and over during my breakup from an abusive relationship. It helped to keep me strong and focused so I could move forward instead of backwards.
