The proof Darkman258 is plentiful.
MRI scans confirm which parts of the brain are active when a gambler or drug addict gets their reward, and its the very same part that lights up when
the patient gets news of an impending win or fix even though they dont actually have a drug or win in their system - which explains why the addict
does what he or she does. Simply having the knowledge that a win or fix is on the way is enough to start feeling that pleasure, then when its
confirmed that a win or fix is NOT on the way (aka the player loses or the drugs are lost or delivery interrupted) the patient suddenly loses that
good feeling and feels the need to replace it immediately, feeding the beast so to speak.
This is true for any addiction in any addict.
The simplest things can be treated like this, its just much more apparent in drug addicts, sex addicts and gamblers. But the same process happens
with any good reward.
Take 'doing the right thing', if you are in a club that promotes 'dong the right thing' and pushes it very hard like the 12 step program in AA
(alcoholics anonymous) the last step is very interesting.
"Step 12: Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to
carry this message to alcoholics, and to practice these principles in all our
At first this simple step sounds pretty reasonable and it is! Having got through the 12 steps with an AA sponsor the individual is compelled to
rescue other victims of alcohol abuse. People who have been clean for multiple decades still go to rescue others. This is rewarding and telling
others about their strength and hope is further reassurement to them and others, constantly rewarding the addict and getting a good feeling - its
simply replacing one bad unhealthy addiction with another - but in this case a GOOD MORAL FEELING for the vulnerable addict.
This is the same way cults like Scientology and other 'religions' operate. And its not always a bad thing! Only in the case of Scientology alot of
money is involved making its good message and rescuing of vulnerable victims dubious.
