Can You Spot A Meth Addict?
There are over 6 million Americans that meet the criteria for a gambling problem every year. The consequences of gambling addiction can be devastating not only to the problem gambler but others in their life as well. It's very hard to admit to yourself that you are a 'problem gambler' but you're not alone, men and women in all age groups understand, and there's help and support for anyone in need.
Gamblers Anonymous (GA) is fellowship of men and women that's grown considerably since the first group meeting that was held on Friday, September 13th in 1957. The first GA meeting was held in Los Angeles, California and since then many people suffering from gambling addiction have supported each other improving their lives and lead normal happy lives now.
The only thing Gamblers Anonymous requires of their members is the 'desire to stop gambling', nothing else. Their members learn that they have to acknowledge to themselves that they're compulsive gamblers and that they have lost their ability to control their gambling.
It makes a big difference for people who share the same addiction and the same desire to 'stop' when it comes to recovery. Gamblers Anonymous Program of Recovery is based on the 12 Steps and the ancient spiritual principles the steps are based on. For anyone wondering why the 12 Steps, the answer is simply, "because it works."
Members of Gamblers Anonymous have found a better way to live, an alternative to the destruction of compulsive gambling, which is the GA program of recovery. No matter who you are members are ready to help anyone who passes through their doors, sharing their experiences and offering strength and hope to those in need.
Understandably some people are not completely sure if they have a gambling problem. Gamblers Anonymous has a GA Questionnaire with questions you can ask yourself to help you decide if you're a compulsive gambler and want to get help. Most compulsive gamblers will answer 'yes' to at least 7 of their questions.
Some people may worry about the cost associated with Gamblers Anonymous, especially during this financially hard time people are going through. Not to worry, there are no fees or dues for Gamblers Anonymous memberships. They are self-supporting through their own contributions. All you have to have is the desire to stop gambling. If you or someone you know is in need of recovery from their gambling addiction or maybe you're not sure, answer the 20 questions honestly and if you have the 'desire to stop' there are Gamblers Anonymous Meetings throughout the United States and their members want to help.
