Overcome your
Gambling Addiction permanently

With Dr. Stanton Peele's online Life Process Program you CAN

The Life Process Gambling Program was developed to provide an alternative treatment option to Gamblers Anonymous (GA). We wanted to create a viable alternative for those with a gambling addiction that do not agree with the 12-step philosophy or did not find success with the steps. It is for people just like you who want to know how to stop gambling.

There is always hope. Gambling addiction affects all aspects of one’s life, no matter how much we convince ourselves that the problem is contained and no one else knows. With the Life Process Gambling Program we can help you stop gambling and show you how to overcome your gambling addiction on your own, from the privacy of your own computer.

Gambling addiction has been debated for decades. Dr. Peele first identified gambling as an addiction in 1975 and has written and lectured on the topic ever since.

The medical community has finally come around to Dr. Peele’s thinking on this topic. Recognising this, in 2013 the DSM-5 (the diagnosis manual for psychologists) included gambling addiction for the first time.

Your recovery is in your hands

It is important for you to know that the independent, self-motivated cure for your gambling addiction is possible. You may be asking yourself, “How  do I stop Gambling?“. With our help, you can fight your own gambling addictions and learn to live an addiction free life once more.

This Life Process Gambling Program© does not ‘fix you’. It is an aid to help you overcome your gambling addiciton so that you can mature out from addiction more quickly, more surely, and more completely by examining your life from the perspectives presented here and following the self-help guidelines provided.

More than anything, the Life Process Program© makes it clear that you are the primary agent of change. Obviously, this program is not in tune with most addiction theory and therapy, which overwhelmingly favors the twelve-step philosophy. These treatments insist on the premise that the individual is powerless over an addiction. In reviewing the extensive research on gambling and other addiction treatment, however, we actually find that self-efficacy therapies, which focus on the individual’s power and self-reliance, succeed the best. If you are searching for alternatives to 12 step approaches such as the Gamblers Anonymous, you have come to the right place.

Success Stories

People who have successfully beat their addiction with the Life Process Program

“Gambling was ruining my life. I had lost so much money and my husband was going to leave me. I had never considered quitting before I found Dr. Peele’s program online. I was able to work through the program without missing out on my life. It hasn’t always been easy, but the LPP really helped me focus on what’s important.”

Kathy J, USA

“I attended Gamblers Anonymous for 10 years, and relapsed over 20 times. When I realized that I am not powerless and not diseased, I finally took responsibility for my addiction and was able to stop, without going to those meetings I hated with a passion. I am no longer sentenced to a life of meetings with sociopaths, liars, benefit cheats and criminals. For years I was told that GA was the only thing that worked, even though I had seen first hand that it didn’t. Thank you, Dr. Peele!”

Rob T, United Kingdom

“I wasted 25 years of my life in the bookies, arcades and casinos. The first two weeks of my journey on the program was up and down, but with the support of my coach I finally graduated and I haven’t looked back.”

Jim, United Kingdom

Questions about gambling addiction

Am I addicted to gambling? 

There are a number of criteria for what constitutes a gambling problem. The definition of gambling addiction LPP finds useful is: when we create an experience where use of a behavior or substance becomes compulsive, and we continue to pursue it in spite of harm to self or others, then that behavior has become addictive. If gambling is causing harm to you or your family, work, etc., then it falls on the addiction spectrum.

How can gambling be addictive?

“Disordered gambling” is the official term, now under the categories of Substance Use and Other Disorders in the ICD-11. It was previously categorized as a mental disorder having to do with impulse-control or compulsive behaviour. Recognition  is growing that, like much addictive behavior, gambling problems are often episodic or temporary—although they may reappear.

Can gambling cause withdrawal?

In a word, “Yes.” Any activity that becomes compulsive, comes to dominate your life and that your structure regularly into your time may cause life disruptions should you choose to stop or reduce it. You may feel distracted, agitated, depressed, angry, weepy, ill, any number of things. Physical symptoms start to ease quickly. Mental and emotional upheaval may take some time. This is true of all addictions.

Isn’t everything okay as long as I’m not losing money?

That’s a good one for you to answer! Is it okay? What’s not okay? Sometimes gambling costs us time, attention, interest in things like our families or friends. There is nothing wrong with gambling itself. If it’s fun, that’s great. But if it’s getting in the way of the people and values you consider important, then it may not be serving you and your life well.
