Psychiatry. 1979 Feb;42(1):79-87.

The compulsive gambler's spiral of options and involvement.

Abstract

The material presented in this report is not intended as an explanation of compulsive gambling. I do not pretend to be refuting the psychoanalytic or the personality theorists. Rather, I describe the changes that take place in the career of the person turned compulsive gambler. Some of what is described here adds to the already existing knowledge of the compulsion.
