Compulsiveness
#1
Big Question smiler...and one that many will disagree with...

Compulsive gambling is recognised as an addiction...same as alcoholism or narcotics addiction....

GA's stance is that it is an illness which can never be cured but can be arrested....

My very personal opinion is that I didn't ask for this illness...
I don't want it...
Yet its a part of me on a daily basis...
I feel i have a predisposition to gambling as it has an incredible hold on me...

What i do know is nature or nurture i have a choice if I accept gambling addiction has got a hold of my life...
What I do with that choice on a daily basis I feel is what either makes me better (accepting GA and the 12 steps) or trying to stop on my own (which has never worked for me)

Today I chose GA and all the help that goes with it...

Maybe this could be the start of a learning journey for you Smiler...but just be careful...not all information is good...give it some thought...
