Why cant I get away from him? I feel sicker than he is. Why do I stay? And when I leave, why do I cry myself to sleep every night, missing him. Yet, when I am with him, I am miserable most of the time. I need help. He is a snake. A liar, a cheater, a thief, a drug addict, and a bum. Why in the heck do I love him so much? What is wrong with me? Why can’t I run and never look back??? HELP!

Brainwashed2005 – Unfortunately, what you are experiencing is very common among people who become involved with sociopaths. Relationships with sociopaths are highly addictive. The combination of love bombing (when things are good), sex (usually), and strategies like intermittent reinforcement and the silent treatment create a very strong bond that is difficult to break.
This is why No Contact is so important. When you are away from him, the bonds start to unravel.
You might want to check out our webinars. I explain this in detail in the the course, “Why it’s so difficult to get over loving a sociopath and how you can recover”. Find it here:
