In my case, there was no adrenaline high from winning or losing. The high was being in the action. As in any addiction, after years of not gambling, once I relapsed, I set off a phenomenon of craving. I lost material possessions, family trust, and my self worth. I apply the same principles of Alcoholic's Anonymous to my gambling abstinence. I have changed my thinking through positive actions. I recognize that my life, (family, finances, work, and self esteem) would be lost if I gambled again. Helping others also has been a plus. As of this date, I am seven years continuously free from gambling. –Joe C.
