Hello Recovery Friends & Visitors,


I am very Honored to share an article that just released and was written by Award-Winning NYT Best-Selling Author and Journalist for Time.com, The Pacific Standard, and Vice, Maia Salazvitz .....  


She had come across my Gambling Recovery Blog, "Gambling Recovery Starts Here" and gave me a call. She was working on an article that researched the NEUROSCIENCE behind a gambling addict, ...... me. Well, was. She emailed me to let me know it had finally released and so I thought I would share a little of the interview and article with all my recovery friends here. YOU can read the whole full article right here: http://nautil.us/issue/40/learning/addicted-to-anticipation  as it gives an in-depth look and understanding about the brain and thinking that takes over when you cross the line into uncontrolled compulsive gambling.

This is a Proud Honor for me and If feel "humbled and blessed" to have been a part of this major media article ....

I live life in recovery, but my "PASSION" is also writing, blogging, authoring more books, and Advocating to help others in recovery. To help educate the public on the dangers of becoming addicted to gambling. I've achieved almost 8 years in recovery. I recently had to relocate from So. Oregon to Sunny Arizona. I've been married to my Soul-Mate for 25 years. I'm a Christian, a Cat Lover, 1/2 Italian and I have a Big Voice! ...LOL.
