Love addiction is not new, but we have only been studying it since the 1980's. We have now figured out that the problem stems from childhood trauma and an attachment disorder, and what the behavioral, psychological, an spiritual solutions are. But we have made little progress knowing what to do about obsessing. We are still in need of a solution, but there is a new breakthrough book that at least explains what it going on. It is The Body Keeps Score by Bessel Van Der Kolk. Amazing book. It explains exactly what is going on in the brain when we obsess and how the brain is altered by childhood trauma.
