Just started to read your thread through from the beginning and am checking new posts and reading from the end sometimes. Your words strip away all of the flowery language of addiction – and compulsion as it is for me, and tell the personal, heart felt truth that Ithink we all feel. Addiction is a disease and a behavior all in the same. You cant cure it without changing the behavior as the behavior is the disease. We all have the mental need to gamble and the hardest thing to fight is your own brain and what it needs. I know that my compulsion is, too, like an addiction but I can only rid myself of one by replacing it with another. Sometimes it’s good, sometimes not. I read your parables and enjoy them very much. Your writing is wonderful and very helpful. Stay with us.
