healing love addiction

8 Feb

All right, taking the journey to self-love is not an easy road. Steps should be taken very, very carefully. And before i finally start all over again, here are the reminders from Anonymous:

Recovery for Love Addicts

A newcomer to LAA recently sent us the following question: “Alcoholics don’t drink. OA’s have a food plan. DA’s have a financial plan. What about LAA’s? Are we just on our own to figure out what recovery means to us?

No! LAA may be a new fellowship, but we are not alone. We are going to figure out as a group what recovery is for us. In the meantime, here are some basic guidelines for newcomers.

To recover, love addicts must change how they think and behave. Consider the following advice.

1. Honestly admit that you are a love addict.

2. Get help whether it be online or at a meeting.

3. Get a sponsor or pair up with another recovering love addict (same gender as you).

4. Start working the steps. Until LAA writes their own textbook you can use the book Co-Dependents Anonymous.

5. Begin to “trudge road of happy destiny.” (From the book ofAlcoholics Anonymous, page 164)
