Formation of gambling addiction: main reasons

Most often, addiction to computer and gambling is a consequence of various psychological disorders, which include:

  • feeling alone;
  • dissatisfaction with oneself;
  • desire to get rich quickly.

The process of the game allows you to experience many unusual and quite thrills, which are often not available in real life. Being in constant tension, the player experiences euphoria from even a small win, which allows him to believe in himself even more.

However, in real life, the addict experiences a constant feeling of anxiety, becomes irritable, analyzes his failures and seeks to find a way that will help him win again. But the reality is that success is necessarily followed by defeat, which makes a person feel despair, loneliness, fear.

Gambling addiction affects people of different ages. The younger generation (schoolchildren, adolescents) is greatly influenced by modern films with beautiful stories of easy enrichment, Internet sites offering “reliable” ways to win in casinos, etc. In childhood, the psyche is more unstable, so addiction forms very quickly.

Treatment of gambling addiction in Lviv

 Getting rid of gambling addiction is possible only with the participation of specialists in the field of psychology. Addiction to games is not affected by persuasion, threats, prohibitions. The Transformation clinic uses a unique 12-step program to treat gambling addiction, with the help of which millions of addicts have become absolutely free.

At the initial stages of gambling addiction, psychocorrectional help can be dispensed with, for which you can also contact a rehabilitation center. With an already formed disease, treatment is carried out in a hospital, the main goal of which is to create a new system of values ​​for the addict, expand the circle of his interests.

Step one

Acknowledging Our Powerlessness: The first step in the program for the addict is to admit that he is no longer in control of his own life. Understanding that we cannot save our lives on our own is the first step to our recovery.

Step two

In his struggle with the disease, the patient can enlist the help of God, such as he sees him.

Step three

The patient learns to trust the power that leads him to recovery; he completely delegates control of his life to this power.

Step four

The stage of careful introspection: the patient reveals his hidden fears and negative experiences to the group in order to understand the root cause of the development of the disease.

Step five

The patient accepts himself and his negative experience; he admits his mistakes not only to himself, but also to his loved ones and to God leading him.

Step six

The patient prepares for active actions aimed at getting rid of the disease. He understands that alcohol or drugs is not the cause of addiction. The reason lies in himself. You can defeat addiction only by changing yourself.

Step seven

Based on the experience of other members of the group, patients begin to correct their own behavioral patterns, correcting their shortcomings.

Step eight

The patient makes a list of the people he has harmed during his illness and prepares himself to apologize for the pain and make amends.

Step nine

The patient apologizes and compensates for the damage to all people offended by him. Thus, he gets rid of remorse and forgives himself.

Step ten

Step eleven

The patient continues his path of reflection. This allows him to develop the spiritual essence of the addict, his moral sphere.

Step twelve

Before I turned to MAA for help, it seemed to me that my life had lost all meaning. I was on the verge of being overcome by feelings of despair. Thoughts about death.

I completed the program and made the decision to learn and develop in the organization. The support of the MAA therapeutic community gives me the confidence and strength to move on and live soberly.

I am 18 years old. I have been drinking alcohol for 3 years, which is why all these years I got into unpleasant situations, after which I miraculously remained alive. Because of my use, I lost control of myself, relations with my family deteriorated intolerable. At one point, my father brought me to rehabilitation, for which I am now grateful to him after completing a full course of rehabilitation. I had enough time to think it over and put everything in its place in my delusions and inability to control my use and further life. This organization taught me a lot. First, I learned to live in sobriety, cry and laugh with real feelings, say “I love” my parents, appreciate many little things that I had not previously paid attention to, reconsidered my views on the world. MAA is changing my life in stages.
