Cure to Gambling Addiction, doesn’t happen overnight!!
Many people argue and will continue arguing all their lives there is really no cure for gambling addictions, however, I strongly disagree with their views on this matter. I personally think that the problem could be one of semantics or else expectations. Firstly, let us be sure that we do agree on the terms regarding cure for this particular ailment. What I meant to say by cure is a cessation of these symptoms and then return to normalcy in life.
Let us take for instance, whenever you catch the flu or a cold, you could say that you are cured whenever this flu or cold has gone away. You can now get back to your normal ways of living your life and do the things which you have been doing before you were sick. It does not simply mean that you would never ever catch flu or cold again and it also certainly does not mean that you will be quite impervious to these problems in the future. It only means that, for that particular moment, or day, you are not incapacitated by the sickness.
Most twelve step programs also use this simple yet powerful affirmation, of “One day only at a time.” In detail, it is just a way to break down this daunting task about controlling a life long problem, by just tackling it in the right manner just for today or for a few days. It is a way of saying that, “Just for this one day I won’t gamble. I will only live my life as well as I can and take care of all the people whom I love and also do the best job that I can do.”
It does not mean that you aren’t or could be susceptible to gambling anymore or that you would never feel that powerful pull, it just means in a simple manner that, you will not be gambling today. You are going to do the things which you ought to do or else want to do it for the people who really depend upon you, and especially for you and yourself.
Hence, if you didn’t gamble today, then when you are going to bed, you could say to yourself that “Today I am completely cured and because of it I didn’t gamble today. Tomorrow is just another day where I have to just live it and simply face the challenges in life for the day as and when it comes, however for now, today is coming to end and was a very good day to me, as I didn’t gamble.”
You just need to consider that life is just a day by day struggle for all the people who live on this earth, whether we realize it or not, it just doesn’t matter. It is not just dangerous or difficult for all the people who have been addicted, but for everyone on this planet. Our psyches and bodies are constantly being bombarded with many challenges and germs that we should overcome. You may be able to survive cancer but may contract it again. And you may also solve all your financial problems, and may again face financial problems and lose everything.
