Publisher's Summary

You're trying to get over your ex, yet you're still in touch and have ended up being his or her backup plan. Maybe you haven't left yet, but you want to and just don't know how. Maybe you're tired of doing the lather, rinse, repeat of getting back together and winding up back at square one. It's time to cut contact.

The No Contact Rule is an inspiring guide to extinguishing the temptation to stay in touch or to keep engaging, helping you to reclaim your sense of self and move on to a healthier relationship. Through her popular blog Baggage Reclaim, Natalie Lue has helped thousands of people break free from unhealthy relationships and breakups after using No Contact to kick a toxic relationship and transform her life.

Discover what NC is and how to do it, how to break an unhealthy cycle, and how to navigate various situations from Facebook to pesky texts, working together, sharing a child, or feeling trapped by your feelings and thoughts. Cut contact and put the focus on you. By treating you with the love, care, trust, and respect you deserve, this could be one of the best decisions you've ever made.

    "Spot on!"

    Loved this one! The narrator is great, a must to read/listen to if you fellow Nat Lue baggage reclaim! It is so spot on it's scary and definitely works! Great to know what you are doing with NC is the right choice and you are on the right path to emotional availability

    Story
    "Ok, but a bit repetitive"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes - it's good if you are struggling with a break up and need to know you;re not the only one who goes through this stuff! It talks alot about why you shouldn't contact them, but kind of lacks things to do instead of contacting them other than 'going out with friends' which isn't always what you feel like doing.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Just summarises and repeats what has already been said (quite a few times) already.


    Have you listened to any of Lucy Price-Lewis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Did The No Contact Rule inspire you to do anything?

    It just reassured me that how I feel is normal and OK. I could relate to many of the things she talked about.

    "good story."

    a lot pertained to who I used to be and who I became. stronger. smarter, wiser. a lot of stuff I'm already doing by blocking all Contact from the ex and moving on, processing all the stages of grieve and my emotion. a lot applies to the ex in how clingy, needy, Codependant he is an refused to give up making the healing process hard for me and himself. wish I could share this book with him but then I'd be breaking the "NC" ;). just have to let him work on him for him, himself cuz I have to work on mine. :)

    Story
    "The friend you need!!!"

    When you are going through a breakup and vulnerable those who love you can't always be straight with you. This book is what you need to hear. It is the hard truth you need but also sage advice. You don't necessarily need to cut contact to take something from this book because she knows all of the bullshit you are trying to work through.
    She does a great job of explaining everything in a way that is practical and understandable. She cannot tell you how YOU need to go about moving on, she just frames what you are going through in ways that will give you perspective.

    If you are struggling with the end or soon-to-be-end of any relationship, buy this book and put on repeat!

    "good story but....."
    What made the experience of listening to The No Contact Rule the most enjoyable?

    it wasnt enjoyable because of the narrator. I could handle listening to her no longer than maybe 20 minutes at a time. Its a Shame.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I really like the story.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    how many cups of coffee did the narrator have????? Talks way too fast. Listening to her was torture.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I wanted to, but couldnt. That pitch, that voice.....too much Speed!

    "I can not recomment this book highly enough!"
    If you could sum up The No Contact Rule in three words, what would they be?

    Extremely helpful for someone going through a breakup, especially when your live isn't returned


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    N/A


    What about Lucy Price-Lewis’s performance did you like?

    Her information and how she presented it


    What did you learn from The No Contact Rule that you would use in your daily life?

    How to maintain healthy relationship balance and not let yourself be taken advantage of.


    Any additional comments?

    As someone who has been in an unhealthy, imbalanced (not in my favor) relationship for two years, I can say this is very useful information. Not groundbreaking in that I have heard a lot of it before. But it's all here, in one book. If you are in an imbalanced relationship you probably know it or at least strongly suspect it. You are not going to like a lot of what is said as I don't. I am currently having to walk away from someone I love with every ounce of my soul but that is not good for me and has never truly valued me as a person. I feel for anyone in this situation as I know how painful it is. But if you want to recover and have something healthy with someone who does appreciate you, what she tells you in this book is absolutely necessary.

    "Wisdom for Dealing With Breakups"

    I love every book Ms. Lue had written. But this one is needed for everyone considering a breakup or just have been through a breakup.

    "OMG dead on"

    Natalie Lue hits the target by connecting to the listener on both sides of a relationship through her accurate descriptions of the emotions and timing of those emotions in a break up and follows up with a rationale course of action. So many times, as I was listening, that I felt I had a lot to gain because she was so dead on.
