In his breakthrough book on obsessions of the heart, best-selling author Stephen Arterburn examines love addiction why it is on the rise, what it looks like, who it afflicts and what to do if you suspect yourself or someone you love to be suffering from it. Like alcoholics or drug addicts, love addicts get high on sex and romance, develop a tolerance for them and need ever-greater doses to keep going. Anyone who wishes to sustain a healthy relationship knows that nurturing true and lasting love is nearly impossible with someone who thrives only on romance. But for every weakness, there is a cure. If you believe that someone close to you may be struggling with love addiction, this book can open your eyes and offer methods for broaching and solving the problem. If you believe that you yourself may be battling addiction, When You Love Too Much will help you recognize the truth and guide you on the road to real and lasting intimacy.
