Compulsive Gambling
We've come a long way in understanding addiction, but some addictions are still relatively not well understood. We're talking today with Michael Burke, an addiction specialist, national speaker, and author of Never Enough: One Lawyer's True Story of How He Gambled His Career Away.

Mike shares with us his own journey through addiction, the nuances as well as the devastation that comes with a gambling addiction, as well as the dangers of trading addictions. It's all happened to him and now he uses his life in meaningful and profound ways to help others.

It's a conversation that's surprising, it's important, and at the root of it all, it's full of hope for people everywere who suffer from any kind of addiction that they truly can begin again.
