Chapter 5:

Addressing Anxiety And Depression

Synopsis

A lot of the group support systems in place do actively broach the subject of anxiety and depression in connection with the gambling addiction. Here the ideas of trying to help the individual overcome such negative feelings that are brought on by the gambling habit are addressed in a very open and non judgmental way.

The Issues

Most people would be able to find a connection between the actual depression and anxiety issues that are brought on by the gambling and vice versa.

However tacking this alone would be quite a feat and would probably cause the individual to eventually give up and give in to the gambling habit all over again.

This of course is not the main intention of bring light to the connections, but is actually one way of making the individual aware of just how damaging the gambling habit has become.

One of the reasons it has been hard to separate the anxiety issues and the close connection it has to the gambling habit would lie in the fact that the gambling addiction is very much a rather lonely, isolating and demoralizing disorder, thus the need for the support group would present the ideal platform for understanding and eventual support sought.

The compulsiveness of the gambling addiction act would further create the stress and chaos that causes the individual to be despondent, experience lack of sleep, hopelessness, helplessness, low self esteem, sadness and even suicidal thoughts in more extreme cases.

The group counseling session will help the individual to understand and acknowledge that there is a very real possibility of being able to look toward a better future sometime down the road if the commitment to beat the gambling addiction is complete and evident. This will allow the individual to at least have a glimpse of what might be possible if the resolve is evident to beat the habit.

Chapter 6:

Looking To The Future Of Being In Control

Synopsis

Group counseling is a great way to help to beat the gambling addiction. This is mainly because the individual will be able to able to express all the feelings and thoughts without the worry of being judged or looked down upon. This is definitely a plus point when it comes to using this platform to attempt to curb the gambling habit.

Looking Forward

Through the group counseling style the individual is able to look forward to the support generated from the group structure and will always be present should the need arise for calling upon this support.

The individual would be more comfortable knowing that there is a re course available, should he or she feel the pull to indulge in the gambling act again.

This also provides an ideal platform for the recovering gambling addict, where there is no need to feel isolated as the mere presence of the group support will be able to give the individual confidence to look positively towards a gambling free life.

While making a conscious effort toward being in better control over the future without gambling the individual can also be certain of the fact that through the various exercises experienced to be rid of the gambling addiction, the individual would have come to terms with the addiction mindset and thus successfully start the journey towards recovery without looking back.

This acceptance phase is usually designed to allow the individual to understand the reason for the gambling indulgence and to work towards avoiding it in the future.
