December 6, 2017 – St. Petersburg native Dr. Carleah East, LMHC, announces the release of her new book, The Hangover: Overcoming Emotional Addiction – 12 Steps for Emotional Sobriety. Inspired by conquering her own challenges with abusive relationships and self-doubt, the author outlines a compelling self-help framework, with advice for creating transformational healing. The Hangover is considered an excellent resource for women’s empowerment and is available for purchase online at http://thesapphirewoman.com/
This book defines an emotional addict as, “an individual who is addicted and emotionally attracted to the highs and lows of a relationship.” “When this happens, the emotional chemistry in the affected individual’s brain and receptors create an addiction,” states Dr. East. “As a result, the addict adjusts him or herself to a “roller coaster” of emotions and feelings,” she further notes.
