London, Aug 5 : Canadian born singer songwriter Alanis Morissette revealed that she finally overcame her "love addiction" by having loads of no-strings sex.
After her engagement to actor Ryan Reynolds came to a very traumatic end in 2006, Morissette was determined not to let her dates turn into relationships anymore.
The only way she could overcome getting involved in long term relationships was by throwing herself into a lifestyle of meaningless sex and throwaway dates.
"No-strings relationships have helped cure me of love addiction," the Sun quoted her as saying.
"All my life I've been in long-term monogamous relationships.
"I had to break that pattern by not allowing myself to have a relationship for a year, stopping myself from committing to men.
"I haven't been celibate. I've had lots of dates and lots of sex, but I haven't been pushing to turn a date into a relationship. This has been a huge thing for me," she added.
