Groundbreaking Overview of Sex/Love Addiction and Recovery

This is a profound and important book which examines the very real, though often socially ignored, addiction to sex and love relationships. Because sex and romantic love are so highly touted in our culture, compulsive behaviors in this area are often overlooked, tolerated and even encouraged. As a psychotherapist I have found that this is often a primary addiction, underlying substance abuse, eating disorders, etc. It is based on the unmet need for genuine love and belonging (agape) missing in our families of origin and the culture at large..and the fundamental lack of self-love and self-acceptance that fails to develop as a result. Thus the endless search for that someone or something outside of ourselves that will be the balm to our loneliness and cure for our inner emptiness. The author brilliantly and poignantly chronicles the discovery and naming of his own addiction and the painful, though ultimately rewarding journey to wholeness and recovery. His chapter on withdrawal was incredibly powerful. I believe this was a book written before its time that deals with a fundamental human/societal problem..the myth that our happiness can be found outside of ourselves rather than within...and serves as a guide to those who have the courage to face themselves and walk through their pain out onto the other side.
