Are you consumed by anger, sadness, frustration, and rumination about what went wrong? If so, you may have an unhealthy love addiction. You aren't alone, and there is nothing to be ashamed of. For people who struggle with love addiction, a breakup can feel overwhelming. The good news is there are tools you can use to begin healing.

Written by a psychologist and leading love addiction expert, Letting Go of Your Ex offers powerful, evidence-based skills and techniques grounded in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help you combat the overwhelming symptoms of love addiction, get unstuck from the past, and start focusing on what makes you happy, right here and now.
