Overcoming Obsessive Withdrawal Symptoms After a Breakup or Relationship Loss.

Nothing is harder on the love addict than going through a break-up, divorce, or any romantic love loss, no matter how chaotic or unhealthy it was.

Why so difficult? 

The answer: Your mind and body are detoxing from an addictive relationship loss- you are facing a withdrawal, not unlike a drug addict experiencing withdrawal from a potent drug like heroin or cocaine (your brain doesn't know the difference).

You're feeling held captive by seemingly unending and exhausting obsessive thoughts; you're feeling out of control, you're feeling like running back to the relationship, creating any kind of contact just to simply feel relief and ease the mental anguish-- despite the chaos, pain, and dysfunction the relationship was.


What's the possible solution to overcome obsessive and agonizing withdrawal symptoms caused by a relationship breakup?

On an intellectual level, you may understand that returning to the relationship with your ex- or jumping into another relationship- or seeking relief through another addiction are not the answers that will not help you break free.

Any old patterns of escaping from yourself (which you've done far too long) will in no way promote your well-being and healing if you truly want to get better.

It's a GUARANTEE that any emotional escape mechanism from the withdrawal will immobilize the possibility of self-healing; you will simply prolong the pain and continue the same toxic patterns of addictive loving, no matter what person you fall in a relationship with in the future.

I wrote SURVIVING WITHDRAWAL to give you hope and share with you what can make a significant turning point in the right direction.


There is no other self-help recovery book that focuses on this specific issue. Surviving Withdrawal is tailored specifically for love addicts. In it, I provide you supportive and effective strategies to help you relieve the acute, often unforeseen symptoms of withdrawal after a love-addicted relationship breakup.

Cutting-edge Tools, Tactics, and Strategies to Help You Triumph Over Love Withdrawal.

With SURVIVING WITHDRAWAL, you will have tools that could help you:

* Improve your sense of self

* Shed guilt, shame, self-hatred, resentment, and other negative feelings

* Have peace of mind

* Feel good about yourself again

* Gain confidence

* See reality that you may not be seeing now

You are treading the same ground that I walked in my last addictive relationship.

You are feeling the same despair, suffering the same hardships, experiencing the same irrational fears and obsessive thoughts, and feel like you're in an endless spiral downward.

Withdrawal is a universal experience for love addicts when the "drug of choice" (addictive lover) is no longer available.

The difference between you and me is that you have not come out the other side of withdrawal as a whole, healed, and cured as of yet-- you are still caught in the grip of the powerful, soul-sucking vortex of dependency to your partner or soon to be ex-partner.


Now it's your turn.

This is your time to become and stay empowered, to put your life back in order, better than it was before--and start putting an end to your dependency to an ex-partner.

This is your moment to take control and to break the chains of the distorted, irrational obsessions and craving to take another "hit" of the person to whom you are addicted.

You do NOT have to stay stuck. You CAN break free, overcome and survive this withdrawal.

This is your opportunity to help empower yourself to move forward on a fulfilling road for having real genuine love relationships you have been dreaming of and of which you deserve.

No more excuses. Give yourself the opportunity to break free from compulsive love dependence.

SURVIVING WITHDRAWAL Workbook provides you with crucial insight:

  • Addiction and its correlation to the withdrawal experience.

  • Fundamental causes of withdrawal symptoms occur in love addiction.
  • Understand how love withdrawal alters brain biochemistry when love addicts experience the loss of a lover/romantic relationship.
  • How & why love-addicted withdrawal parallels the withdrawal symptoms of an addict trying to kick a drug or alcohol addiction.
  • What you might expect or experience facing love withdrawal (i.e., symptoms, thinking, behaviors) during a relationship breakup.
  • Understand the distinction between the more typical grieving process and grieving felt with love and relationship withdrawal.
  • Gain keen insight into how the process of withdrawing from love addiction can be the seed to grow, strive, and become a whole and healthy person, to meet yourself ,and realize the remarkable potential for you and your life that has been stored away for so long.
  • Why the Avoidant and/or Narcissist (ex-partner) behaviors, feelings, actions, thoughts, or words have absolutely nothing to do with you; or anything you've done or said or didn't do or say in the relationship.


SURVIVING WITHDRAWAL Workbook provides you critical tools, tactics, and vital strategies:

  • Conquer upsetting, painful, and anxiety-provoking thoughts, distortions, and obsessions
  • Getting off the compulsive infatuated emotional roller coaster.
  • Defeat the irrational ‘stinkin-thinkin' (what I call the lies), fueling much of the pain in withdrawal.
  • Change from ‘loving' someone so much it hurts-- to loving yourself enough to stop the pain.
  • Free yourself from compulsive-dependent loving and get on the path to build a healthy, meaningful relationship with yourself.
  • Avoid ineffective or self-defeating attempts to hasten your healing process.
  • Replace unhealthy, obsessive, and compulsive behaviors- with strong, nurturing self-caring behaviors.
  • Curtail zealous addictive urges and craving to ‘contact' or run back to him or her and the love-addicted relationship.
  • Stop giving power to the fantasy- knock your ex-partner off the ‘pedestal' you've put him/her on for too long.
  • Stop yourself from returning to a bad relationship because of the fear of being alone.
  • Proactively face the inevitable challenges of withdrawal- better adjust to the acute discomfort and push through common setbacks in withdrawal.
  • Growth forwarding strategies to survive slips and setbacks so you continue to move forward on a healthy course to self-care, healing, and recovery.
  • Steps to free you from destructive loving and begin a new path to build a healthy, meaningful relationship with yourself.

SURVIVING WITHDRAWAL Workbook is about helping you get 'Unstuck' and Empowered - by utilizing the beneficial methods and insights.


What this workbook program isn't!

There is no magic wand. I can't wave a wand to heal your withdrawal and heal your heart. You're a love addict who desires to heal, so you have some work to do.

There are some things you have to know and some things you really must do.

I believe the work for you can start right here in this workbook.
I can show you based on my experience, what's possible. Get going and it is possible you will be well on the road to recovery.

I'm definitely not interested in teaching you in this workbook how to win your ex back. You want to heal right? In my experience, going back to a toxic relationship only leads to continued disaster.

Right now you are in withdrawal from being addicted to your ex, you are baffled, confused, lonely and more importantly, you want relief. It's called a breakup because it's broken- It's called withdrawal because your ex was a drug which you are breaking free from.

Neither is this workbook on how to find a new lover. That would also be disastrous.

Please don't even think about jumping into another relationship right now. If you did, your healing would almost certainly continue unhealthy and detrimental love addicted patterns. 
You would continue to abandon You.

You have done that too long.

Your withdrawal is telling you something! And I believe what the experience of withdrawing from an addictive relationship is telling us- it is time. That is, it is time to repair, heal, overcome, and break free from toxic loving.


Help yourself get out of withdrawal and break free from the turmoil-- Take action now and discover tools to help you overcome the symptoms of love withdrawal.
