Narcotic Love: In and Out of the Coma of Narcissistic Abuse

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.
 Although, I had been dealing with many narcissists in all areas 
of my life before, 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 this toxic dynamic, 
I managed to walk away and embark on my healing journey.

NARCOTIC LOVE was written by a survivor for current and 
future survivors to understand and free yourself from
 narcissistic abuse in toxic relationships.

You are not crazy.
You are not alone.

You are enough.
You can survive.

Narcotic Love: Der Weg aus dem Wachkoma narzisstischen Missbrauchs

Narcotic Love führt dich durch die grausame und lebensverändernde Reise narzisstischen Missbrauchs mittels persönlicher Erfahrungen und tiefgründiger Recherche. Das Buch beantwortet die Fragen: Wie wir in jenes Schlamassel hineingerutscht sind, wie wir manipuliert wurden, was wir im Teufelskreis der Abwertung durchmachen mussten und wie wir uns selbst heilen und schützen können, um solch eine ähnliche Situation in Zukunft zu vermeiden. Narcotic Love reißt die Maske von narzisstischen Missbrauchern herunter und liefert wertvolle Ratschläge an Opfer, um aus ihnen starke Survivor zu machen.

Mit 30 hatte ich endgültig genug. Genug von toxischen Menschen. Genug von dem Missbrauch. Genug davon, mich nicht gut genug zu fühlen. Obwohl ich bereits mit vielen Narzissten in allen Lebensbereichen zu tun hatte, musste ich mich erst in einen verlieben, um meine Welt gänzlich auf den Kopf zu stellen. Als mir nach lediglich fünf Monaten in dieser toxischen Beziehung die ersten Suizidgedanken durch den Kopf schossen, gelang es mir, mich zu befreien und mich auf meine Heilungsreise zu begeben.

NARCOTIC LOVE wurde von einem Survivor für gegenwärtige und zukünftige Survivors geschrieben, um narzisstischen Missbrauch in toxischen Beziehungen zu verstehen und sich davon zu lösen.

Du bist nicht verrückt.
Du bist nicht allein.
Du bist genug.
Du kannst dies überstehen.
