Breaking the Cycle of Love Addiction

Season 4, Ep. 136
This week on The Race for the Ring, Mindie is joined by licensed psychotherapist, coach, author, and founder of Wakeup Recovery, Sherry Gaba!In this episode, Sherry brings her vast expertise and personal experience to those ready to exit the self-destructive cycle of and create lasting, loving relationships. Author of the bestselling book Love Smacked, Sherry marries her vast knowledge of the addiction recovery process with her expertise in relationship coaching and counseling.But she has a very personal reason for specializing in this area. She WAS a romance and love addict for most of the first 40 years of her life! Married four times, she was driven by the need for reassurance, comfort, safety and validation that she perceived a relationship offered. Her compulsion stemmed from being a premature baby placed in an incubator for weeks after birth. Without that initial bonding and supporting parenting, she suffered the abandonment that drives most people who are love addicted. Sherry’s husbands included the abuser, the neglector and the alcoholic.Fortunately, she eventually sought a career in social work, earning a master’s in her field, while also seeking support at Al-Anon, the organization that helps family members of alcoholics grow, heal and release their co-dependency. These all gave her new insights, starting her on the path of self-love,respect and independence that gave her special insight into what many of her clients were reporting in their disastrous relationships.Listen closely as Sherry shares more of her personal experiences and how to detach from the compulsive behavior that marks romance and love addiction, co-dependency and repeated engagement in toxic relationships.Follow Sherry Gaba on social media @trauma_codependencycurious and on her website SherryGaba.comTake Sherry’s quiz: Am I a love addict? Relationship Quizzes – Provided by Sherry Gaba, LCSWMindie BarnettWebsite: @mindie.barnettFollow The Race for the Ring PodcastInstagram: @racefortheringpodcast------------------------------------------------Produced and Edited by Danielle Gordon
