I identify with all types of love Addicts in some way or another but The obsessed love addict and the codependent love addict really resonates with me. My method and road to recovery has been an interesting one. I began focusing on how did I get here and admitting that I have no control over nor can I change the past. Therapy, ASCA, & ACA to address my address childhood sexual trauma. Slowly I’m giving up or have given up my will to my Higher Power who I call God. Stopping all addictive patterns that I now recognize is where I am today. Staying connected with other people in healthy ways and staying connected with my higher power and exercise helps with the “mental obsession” and insanity. Positive affirmations and lots of prayers and lots of work to undo over 20 years of irrational thinking and behavior. I desire sanity. I’m powerless and I need people. As I write to message board instead of writing to my POA, no contact....it helps keep me from filling my “empty” with false feelings and delusional thinking. I pray for everyone on this path to recovery and I pray for healing. Codependent no more. Obsessed no more.
