Product Description

This is a short essay regarding the biochemical bonds victims of narcissistic abuse develop with their abusers. Featured on the Self-Care Haven website, the extended version of the article is now available in Kindle format. Many survivors of narcissistic abuse are confounded by the addiction they feel to the narcissist, long after the abusive relationship took a toll on their physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Make no mistake: recovery from an abusive relationship can be very similar to withdrawal from drug addiction due to the biochemical bonds we may develop with our toxic ex-partners. Learn how these bonds create an addiction that is difficult to break. All proceeds for this e-book go back into supportive services for survivors through Self-Care Haven.

What mental health professionals are saying about this article:

"Brilliant article on trauma bonds and recovering from narcissistic abuse." - Andrea Schneider, LCSW, MSW.

"A must read! Perfect article to help you understand the biochemical changes in abuse." - Shannon Thomas, LCSW, Southlake Christian Counseling

5.0 out of 5 stars Going through the journey of healing, eye opening 8 October 2016
By AMD - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've been going through counseling, soul searching, digging to my depths, researching, journaling and grabbing for any piece of information to help me understand **why** I am still wanting my ex (who is emotionally abusive), despite all of the *very clear reasons* that I shouldn't. This was the missing piece of the puzzle I've been praying for. It finally makes sense. Once I understand something, I can move forward. My hope is to do exactly that and never give any abuser another minute of my life or breath from my lungs. I'm ready to start healing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great explanation! 27 March 2016
By Farmer Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This article runs through the biochemical and emotional reasons why these crazy relationships are addictive and so hard to forget even after you walk away from them, or have been discarded! It's a quick read and packed with well researched quality information and has references for further research if you desire to pursue further. No fluff! Looking forward to reading the next book!

Shadida Arabi is a great writer and knowledgeable scholar who has not only studied narcissists and personality disorders in general but has had personal and up-close experience with a narcissist -- and lived to write about it. I highly recommend her book to people who are trying to make sense of their experience or end a relationship with a narcissist. ASIN: B01LW57ZN3

It's very important to read this book. It speaks neatly about this strange and difficult disorder. Stay away or cero contact with the narc is the only way out and you will find how to avoid him or her in this excellent book.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is key in understanding the chemical bonds created in an abusive relationship. 14 August 2016
By Autumn Chaulklin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am so grateful for this author's research and her expressing the need for more research concerning the brain chemicals and the effects of abuse on them. Understanding addiction can really help a person to move forward. I believe this book can and will help a multitude of readers. If you have suffered or are suffering the effects of abuse - you must read this. And if you're one who has never experienced abuse, you should read as well so you can learn how to support loved ones in those terrible situations.
