Defining Love Addiction

When we think of love we don’t often consider it as an addiction.

 

The American Psychiatric Association defines addiction this way;

 

“Addiction is a chronic brain disease that causes compulsive substance use despite harmful consequences. Health, finances, relationships, and careers can be ruined. The abuse of drugs and alcohol is by far the leading cause of preventable illnesses and premature death in our society.”

 

I want you to know that dysfunctional love is an addiction that can also destroy your health, finances, relationships and career. Just ask anyone whose life has been destroyed by loving someone who destroyed it.

 

Love addiction also gives the love addict a “high.” Science has shown there is indeed a pleasure hormone that is secreted into our bodies when we feel we are in love. 

Your early life set you up for this addiction and through prayer and counseling God can, and will, show you what set you up for this crazy ride. Once you understand WHY, it’s easier to overcome and be whole and healthy again.
