Question by Midlife C: Is there any help for gambling addiction that is not a 12 step program?
I need to find some kind of secular help for gambling that does not involve turning my life over to a higher power. I am an atheist and these religious or quasi religious 12 step programs do not work for me.
Some people may not perceive 12-step programs to be religious, but my perception is that they are, and that limits their usefulness to me. I don’t want to get in an argument about whether 12-step programs are religious or not. Let’s just say that whether or not they actually are religious, they feel like they are to me.

hey my brother just joined the military and is in boot camp as I type. He gambled away over 100,000 bucks hurting my family and his girlfriend! I think this military thing is really teaching him to be responsible and my brother knew this was pretty much all he could do to help himself. GOOD LUCK!
