How to cope with a compulsive gambling problem

As a woman with her own compulsions, I would recommend seeing a psychiatrist who specializes in anxiety disorders, including obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), and maybe Bipolar disorder (especially if your gambling is not constant but comes and goes, in cycles). I am Bipolar. When I am stable I do not do anything compulsive but when I get a bit manic they all come jumping out of the closet. OR depressed. Compulsions can release endorphins in the system, which öake you feel better, and thus can be a way to self-medicate for depression.
