People do come to the understanding they’re addicted to gambling. Some of us are prepared to get help, some refuse, others do not know what to do, where to go or who to trust. A small proportion of those people will seek help. They’re the lucky ones. Others But will continue to live in a dream world.
The dream world takes the addicted person from pain, loneliness and truth. As every day passes they lose more money and attempt to believe next time they’ll have that big win. Unfortunately it never comes.
An addict is an individual whose life is dependent and limited by their aspiration to keep on following the identical behavior patterns. We are individuals who exhibit behavior patterns which if continued will become progressively worse. The final result may include jail, associations, illness, poverty, and death.
