In this week' episode, we talk about a misunderstood addiction, gambling addiction. We discuss how it plays out in the brain, and what destruction it causes.

THE passion for play is probably as old, and will be as enduring, as the race of man. Some of us are too timid to risk a dollar, but the percentage of people in this feverish nation who would not enjoy winning one is very small. The passion culminates in the professional. He would rather play than eat. Winning is not his sole delight. Some one has remarked that there is but one pleasure in life greater than winning, that is, in making the hazard.” – S.W. Erdnase
