Below are some abbreviations I use a lot on this blog and so I’ve listed them here:
D= the wonderful guy I am with now, and with whom I live. We have been dating since January 15, 2009.
G = (C in The Break-Up Journals) my old “person of addiction” with whom I am no longer addicted, but am still friendly, when we bump into eachother from time to time. He is also the G in the Love Addict documentary. Hmm…you can easily put the pieces together to figure out his name.
S = (P in The Break-Up Journals) My very last Avoidant, and someone I dated after G . He was a nice guy, but a pot smoker. When we split, it was then that I realized I could never date a guy who did any kind of drugs or heavy drinking. Every person you meet is a teacher. He taught me that my values need to be more important than my need for a relationship. He is the protagonist in The Break-Up Journal.
HP = Higher Power (God, Buddha, the Universe, etc.)
LA= Love Addict
LAA= Love Addicts Anonymous
NC= No Contact
PoA= Person of Addiction
Susan= Susan Peabody
SW= Seductive Withholder
The forums = Susan Peabody runs a love addiction forum, which can be found here.
Break Up Journal = My real-life account/journal of the break up of me and “P” which ultimately changed my life and forced me to look at the world differently.

I seriously dont even know how I ended up proper here, but I believed this write-up was beneficial. I dont recognize exactly who you are but certainly youre going to a popular tumblr when you are not already. Cheers!
