Declare Your Independence from Love Addiction with the Author of ”Love Smacked,” Sherry Gaba on Divorce & Beyond #244

It is fitting that our 4th of July episode features the topic of freedom and independence!  In this week's episode, Host, Susan Guthrie speaks with Sherry Gaba, psychotherapist and author of "Love Smacked," about the toxic cycle of love addiction and how you can break free!

Relationship addicts are so in love with love with love and romance and being coupled up that they continually move from one relationship to another, always on the rebound, never giving themselves time to heal and learn how to be independent.  As a leading expert on addiction and recovery, Sherry’s TV appearances include: Vh1’s Celebrity Rehab, CNN, Inside Edition, Access Live and E! News and she specializes in helping people to break free from the addiction cycle and codependency so that they can find everlasting love.  

Some questions Sherry addresses in the episode:

1.  What is love addiction and what are the signs and symptoms?
2.  How do you know if you are in a toxic relationship?
3.  What is love bombing?
4.  Why do we become addicted to toxic relationships?
5.  What is withdrawal from a toxic or love addicted relationship?
6.  How do we overcome our addiction to a toxic relationship?

If any of this rings a bell, then this episode is for you!  Isn't it time to declare your Independence?!
