If you've recently gone through a breakup, then you may find relief in knowing that you are not the only one who feels like you're withdrawing from a drug.
Believe it or not, the deep pain experienced after a split actually triggers the same part of the brain that is stimulated during drug addiction, according to a recent study at Stony Brook University. This makes sense, love is one of the most powerful addictions; if it's lost then the body enters a period of withdrawal.
