What is Compulsive Gambling? 

Compulsive gambling is a progressive disease, much like an addiction to alcohol or drugs. In many cases, the gambling addiction is hidden until the gambler becomes unable to function without gambling, and he or she begins to exclude all other activities from their lives. Inability to stop gambling often results in financial devastation, broken homes, employment problems, criminal acts and suicide attempts. 

The gambler is eventually able to remove themselves from reality to the point of being totally obsessed with gambling. Eventually, they will do anything to get the money with which to stay in "action". They will spend all their time and energy developing schemes in order to get the money to continue gambling. Lying becomes a way of life for the gambler. 

They will try to convince others and themselves that their lies are actually truths and they will believe there own lies. 

After they hit a real bottom they will have to do something if they want to try to recover. Most gamblers at that point will want to stop but can't (they wont be able to). 

Most even at that point will keep gambling some will end up in jail some will attempt suicide some will die from their addiction as they will not take care of their health or the stress will kill them. 

And a small group of addicted gamblers will seek and find real help but the real trick is to get in to real recovery. Not just abstinence. By the time the gambler comes for help they have broken brains (Meaning their brains don't work like they used to when they were not in there addiction). 

To get real recovery the gambler needs to work on them self's one day at a time and get someone to do there thinking for them who has been in recovery some time and has there brains are working right (a sponsor) After some time in recovery there brains will start to work again. They will become productive on there job and become a good father and husband. Recover is a process and does not happen with out a lot of work on your self . and making a moral and financial inventory. But people can recover and do.
