What happens when you first walk into a CASINO? How do you feel? Like your special? Have feelings of excitement? Like you may WIN BIG?
Well, that was exactly how I felt! And how many people who have had a problem with gambling, felt too! Now, I am not saying that if you gamble normally that you’ll become a problem or an addicted gambler. What I am trying to say and share is that for those who do have a problem? There is nothing NORMAL about it as many of the exciting feelings become the staple of ‘HOW WE FEEL’ each time we gamble. AND? It goes way beyond those “Feeling of being SPECIAL”…
We actually get a euphoric high and rush when we walk into any gambling venue …And never matters if we WIN or LOSE, these feelings along with cravings, triggers, and urges compound the more we are in “action!” Be it at cards, slots, or even dice? The preference really doesn’t matter.
It is the act, being in action and being active within gambling that keeps us stuck in a habitual “CYCLE.”
With so much STIGMA around this Silent Problem, a problem many suffer in silence from addicted gambling, I wanted to share most of an article by the team at “Recovery Village Center” to help us with some of the real facts are from the MYTHS about problem gambling. Always know they are ready to HELP and share HOPE from this cunning addiction as The Fine Folks of Recovery Village are always available.
