Are you tired of fighting a playing addiction? Do you wish your playing problem would just go away? You have probably heard that once you are enslaved by anything, the addiction lasts a lifetime. That is true to the best of my knowledge. Though it is true that the playing problem you have now will never go away, it is possible to not think about playing poker88 all the time. Thinking about the playing problem, or playing is the part of a playing addiction that would wear many people down. In plain English, they just get tired of talking about it, considering it, and dealing with the playing problem they have.
While the compulsive playing disease is incurable, it is possible to go through days or even weeks without considering it or being fixated on the problem. That is what you really want, isn’t it? You want to just live your life, have fun, laugh, enjoy life, without battling a problem 24/7. You want relief. The good news is that is possible. The illness may not go away, but the symptoms can be treated.
I know bettors who have a normal life and revel in life. I have also known them long enough so i remember when they first stopped playing and started working at being a non-gambler. Many of them complained at the time that it seemed the joy choose to go out of life, that life was not any fun anymore. After time passed I reminded some of them of these and we had a good laugh. How dark things seemed when they first said they had a playing problem and begun to take their first small, hesitating steps towards being clean, a non-gambler.
The first thing you have to understand about your wonderful mind is that it has parts. There is the conscious part of your brain and the unconscious part. The conscious part of your brain may want to be happy and just relax and revel in life, your unconscious may be preoccupied with a desire to gamble. As long as your unconscious is fixated on playing, there will be no relief, but the nice thing about the human mind is that it can only truly hold one thought at a time. In other words, if your unconscious becomes filled or fixated with another thought, the playing desire and all the nervousness and anxiety that goes with it, will disappear.
There are deep breathing and relaxation techniques that are very easy to learn and that you can use to clear your brain. These powerful techniques have worked for many people, just ordinary people who happened to have a playing problem, exactly. If you have a playing problem and you are done with it, I recommend you keep treating it with a 12 step program or the therapy you are now using, but also add an Mp3 format that is specially designed to relax your brain and put those positive thoughts into your unconscious that will replace the playing problem and give you the relief you seek.
You won’t be cured and you will still need your therapy or support group, but you will eventually find whole days and even weeks going by without that terrible battle and yes, you will find some of the joy coming back into your life.
