Unfortunately, the answer to this is no. There is no cure for compulsive gambling. This is because doctors have deemed it to be a disease, much like heart disease or kidney disease. It needs to be treated, and it is possible for a gambler to move into a state of recovery. This means not participating in the active addiction any longer.
Sometimes people think that not being to quit gambling is due to a lack of willpower. Dr. Timothy Fong, co-director of the UCLA Gambling Studies Program says otherwise. He states, “What one person calls a lack of willpower, I call a disease - a sign that the brain is not working properly. There are brain changes that explain why people can't stop. We're trying to find which parts of the brain are affected. Therapy and medications can help restore normalcy to the brain and improve one's ability to control these urges.”
Keep in mind that just because you have a gambling addiction, you're not destined to remain in it. It will remain, but you can move forward and change the way you live your life.
