She bets her life: A true story of gambling addiction

Abstract

In She Bets Her Life, Mary Sojourner shares her personal struggle — and the struggle of eight other women in her support group — with gambling addiction. In this emotional memoir, Sojourner recounts how her addiction progressed, and recalls the point at which she realized her problem. She describes her time with Scheherazade's Sisters, her support group, and sheds light on how women from different walks of life confront this common addiction. In addition to the personal stories, She Bets Her Life also serves as a resource on the reality of this growing problem. Sojourner provides insight into gambling addictions — covering withdrawal, recovery, healing, and the role of the family in these addictions, as well as helpful resources on where to turn for help. A hard-hitting confession of the journey to the bottom — and back up — She Bets Her Life offers an honest story to which others can relate.
