now THIS is what I call a Valentine's Day article!

from Beyond Blue:

12 Ways to End Addictive Relationships

In his book, "How to Break Your Addiction to a Person," Howard Halpern first explains what an addictive relationship is, then gives guidelines for recognizing if you're involved in one. Then, he offers several techniques on how to end an unhealthy relationship (or an emotional affair).

I’ve compiled and adapted all of his suggestions into the following dozen techniques, excerpting what I found to be the most important passages for each.

1. Keep a Relationship Log
2. Find the Patterns
3. Write Memos to Yourself
4. Make Connections.
5. Foster a Supportive Network
6. Complete Your Sentences
7. Be Aware of Your Body
8. Nurture Your Core Fantasies
9. Awareness of Wanting
10. Stop Thoughts and Distract Yourself
11. Allow Multiple Attachments
12. Connect with the Timeless
