Yes!  Risk is always around the corner.  The addiction just creates so many distorted thoughts including ones that all is well just relax … like it just wants you to lower your guard.  You can’t lower your guard against gambling — when it seems like the coast is clear and you’re over it, you’re not!

I’m watching my cravings during these first few days surge and go in waves — when I get the craving pushed back enough I feel deep joy underneath it … even just the craving steals my happiness and sense of connection to the world around me.  I don’t realize how much it’s consuming my brain/turning it into a fog til it’s pushed further back and i’m more “here and now”
