Is there a way to cure my gambling addiction for good?
First of all, allow me to say a few words about a problem that’s been ruining my life. I’ve been addicted to gambling for the past 5 years. In that time frame, I had several brief periods where I managed to stay away from this terrible habit of mine, but I keep coming back to it. I just can’t help it!
I even tried going through a rehab at two different institutions, but the results were nothing to write home about. After the first stint, I was able to resist the urge to get back to casinos for about a month, but I eventually ended up relapsing again.
As far as the second attempt at rehab goes, I wouldn’t even say that it was worth my time. It included just a couple of individual sessions with a psychiatrist, after which they released me back on the streets. It didn’t take long before the road eventually drove me to my old habits.
Nowadays, I find myself in deep financial trouble, desperately needing to find a way out. Has anyone found a treatment that actually works? Please, give me some useful advice, I’m starting to lose all hope.
