LOVE YOU CLEAN AND SOBER. Dr. Molly Barrow Matchlines Love Relationship Self Help

Early childhood abuse and character weaknesses often show up in currently addictive lifestyles. When you light up a “poison stick,” does that say you like yourself or hate yourself? If a person does not treat the emotional wounds first that are the catalyst for the addiction, the addiction or self-destructive behavior will likely never stop—or sometimes it will just change to a new addiction. Your body may love the substance or behavior. However, do you love your body when you give in to your craving for more of what is expensive, unhealthy, illegal or possibly immoral?

Addicted people can be, in a very real way, deaf, dumb and blind to your genuine love. A full-blown addiction can render the longest Loveline potential imaginable a Bottomline. If you are addicted to any substance, please make the call for professional help as soon as you have a moment of strength. Be clean and sober to improve the quality of your life and the quality of the love you have to give.

Dr. Molly Barrow holds a Ph.D. in clinical psychology and is the author of the new book, “Matchlines: A Revolutionary New Way of Looking at Relationships and Making the Right Choices in Love.” She is an authority on relationship and psychological topics, a member of the American Psychological Association and a licensed mental health counselor. Dr. Molly has appeared on NBC, PBS, KTLA, and in Psychology Today, O Magazine, Newsday, MSN.com, Match.com, Women’s Health, The Nest, AIA, Manage Smarter and Women’s World.
