Gambling problem

We all know that adrenalin rush we get when we win something, but imagine what your life would be like if you jeopardized your emotional and financial well-being because you were constantly chasing that “winning” feeling. Compulsive gamblers do just that. They are unable to control their desire to gamble because they have what is technically classified as an impulse-control disorder. Without treatment, it is a serious problem that can destroy lives. A recovery term for quitting gambling is to “stay off the bet,” but as many recovering gamblers will tell you, “It’s easier said then done.” Luckily, recent findings in neuroplasticity research, the brain’s ability to make changes through learning, may hold some answers. The brain has a remarkable ability to re-wire itself when provided with the right kind of stimulation which is providing hope for many people who are suffering with addictions.
