Many addicts entertain the allusion that they are still in control and therefore don’t have a problem since they can stop whenever they want (they just don’t want to stop now). Only after admitting that the “key” is no longer in their possession can they start the process of trying to recover the lost “key”.
Join Rabbi Zecharia Wallerstein in his journey through gambling addiction, the rush of adrenaline that accompanies winning a game, and the feeling of being compelled to go for another and another. Learn that while therapy can help one deal with addiction, to truly cure it one must find a way to use their experience to help others. In Rabbi Wallerstein’s case he used the abuse he sustained as a child to fuel his passion and mission of helping others overcome their addiction.
