Headache, nausea, dizziness, lose of appetite, and body pain are just a small number withdrawal symptoms someone can feel when withdrawing from a drug. A person can have them all or be lucky and just get hit with a few. Christian and Ana’s relationship is so intense that when they split at the end of book one, they both seemingly suffer through withdrawal symptoms, as if each were a drug to one another.
The pain of withdrawal being too much, both Christian and Ana come to realize that their needs and wants in the relationship have changed. For Christian, he decides to forgo the need to have Ana as his sub, much more willing and open to a “vanilla” relationship.” For Ana, having Christian in her life and dealing with his 50 Shades of Fucked Up is something she is willing to work through. Love conquers all, right?
Is the “high” you feel worth the withdrawal? Can you love so intensely that it is like a drug you crave? Is it bad for you?
What say you all?
