Narcotic Love – In and Out of the Coma of Narcissistic Abuse
A guide to detect and survive narcissistic abuse in toxic relationships.
Narcotic Love guides you through the horrific, and yet, life-changing journey of narcissistic abuse, explained through personal experience and research. It answers the questions, why we got involved, how we were manipulated, what we had to endure during the cycle of abuse, and how we can heal ourselves to prevent these situations altogether. Narcotic Love rips off the mask from narcissistic abusers and offers valuable advice to victims to empower and become strong survivors.
At 30, I was done. Done with toxic people. Done with the abuse. Done with feeling not good enough. While I had dealt with many narcissists in all areas of my life, it was not until I finally loved one that my life was turned upside down. When the first suicidal thought crossed my mind after merely five months into our relationship, I dared to walk away, break all contact, and start my healing journey. Two months later, NARCOTIC LOVE was born – a guide to survive narcissistic abuse in toxic relationships. This book was written by a survivor for other survivors or victims who unfortunately still find themselves in a toxic situation. You are not crazy. You are not alone. You are enough. You can survive.
