You are going to really "get" today's show about addiction, favorite listeners. Recently, two brilliant actors transitioned at a really young age: Cory Montieth and Phillip Seymore Hoffman. Both overdosed on heroine or maybe heroine and alcohol. I love both of them so completely and have followed them from the beginning of their career. No sooner than I asked the question, "Why?" did Abraham answer the question. They have answered the question before, but I didn't get it. Yesterday, I understood the answer and can hardly wait to tell you about it. See you at 11:00! Love, Linn

What Is Love Addiction?
Love addicts spend much time, effort on a person to whom they are addicted. Love addicts value this person above themselves, and their focus on the beloved other often is obsessive. This behavior results in love addicts neglecting to care for themselves in a variety of ways, in essence abandoning important aspects of their lives and well-being to stay connected to the object of their affections.
Love addiction doesn’t pertain only to romantic or sexual relationships. A love addict’s core fantasy is the expectation that someone else can solve their problems, provide unconditional positive regard at all times, and take care of them. When this unrealistic need isn’t met, love addicts may find themselves feeling resentful, and may create conflict in their relationships with others.
Some love addicts find that when Not involved in a love-addicted relationship, they are able to care for themselves quite adequately. However, when they become involved, the love addict quickly finds that their self-care capacity steadily declines.
People generally become love addicts due to a past history of abandonment from their primary caregivers. Adult love addicts usually recognized as children that their most precious needs for validation, love and connection with one or both parents were not met.
This affects their Self-Esteem dramatically in adult life. It results in a conscious fear of abandonment and an underlying subconscious fear of intimacy. To a love addict, intensity in a relationship is often mistaken for intimacy.
As with any addiction, recovery from love addiction is a process of self-discovery. It requires taking specific steps: breaking through denial and acknowledging the addiction; owning the harmful consequences of the addiction; and intervening to stop the addictive cycle from occurring.
