I was the same way. Several therapists, both conventional and alternative, I've spoken to over the last year about this acknowledge the difficulty of the process. They commend me for making the break, but I don't take much comfort from that after misdirecting twenty years of my life. It's good to be free, though, cuz I shudder when I think of the alternative.
