Overcoming a gambling addiction requires the
person to admit that they have a problem with gambling. This is incredibly difficult for
people who suffer from all addictions. Addictions are shrouded in these two elements. This one
being this denial where people deny that they have a problem. And this rationalization that
tells them that they may have a problem, but it’s not as bad as it’s, as it really is.
So denial and rationalization are two things that keep people from engaging in a uh, a
meaningful recovery program. Getting past that requires the person to reach out and
to get over the shame. Get over the secrecy that surrounds their addiction and ask someone
for help. Typically this involves a professional who has the capacity and the credentials to
deal with addictions, to deal with addictive disorders. But it doesn’t necessarily need
to happen that way. There are programs available for people who also suffer from addictive
disorders that you can plug into. That you can go to and find a community of other people
who have found a solution to their gambling problem. So there’s a way that you can tap
into this community of other people who are also in recovery. And that will enable you
to experience recovery around your own gambling addiction.
