Addiction is a primary, chronic brain disease and, therefore, impacts all aspects of thinking, feeling, and behaviour. Recovery is learning about how the disease impacts these areas and working with that, while developing different ways of being and coping. In this message Paige explores a specific manifestation of Addiction: gambling. Even if you think this does not apply to you, it is still worth exploring because you may be surprised. This is, after all, a cunning, baffling, and powerful disease.
