Arnie and Sheila take the reader of their book on a journey through how they went from being casual gamblers to fully addicted people who would risk everything for one more bet. More importantly, they also teach us how to get out of that path of self-destruction and loss that all addictions bring with them, including gambling.
Arnie Wexler is totally devoted now to help people win the last bet against gambling addiction and recover their quality of life. Gambling is, as many other addictions, a process that can be arrested but not cured. Those who have survived and recovered have to keep an eye on risky behavior forever, addictions are there on the corner waiting for a moment to attack again.
Sheila Wexler also shares her viewpoint as the spouse of an ex-addict. Her insights are of great value for those who feel they are victims in an uncontrollable situation. If you feel gambling is affecting your life or that of your family, this book can teach you what are the first signs and symptoms of compulsive gambling and what to do from the moment you spot those symptoms. This book offers a full path from addiction to recovery from a humble person with an enormous energy for reaching out and helping others.
