Episode 330: Chasing the High with Michael G Dash


Are you living a balanced life or a fulfilled life?

Michael G. Dash is on the show today to talk about what it really means to feel fulfilled in your life. It’s more than working in your business, you’ve got to spend time and take care of yourself. Michael also talks about his journey with a gambling addiction and dealing with a lawsuit with a business partner. About his addiction, he voices his opinion on the problem, as he has struggled with it himself. He states to anyone who is also struggling with this ailment should try to seek help and support. He also pointed out that there is aid and support out there since many countries are taking steps to help gambling addiction. If you’re interested in learning more, you can read what Esportare.se wrote about “Spelpaus”. Above all, He teaches all of us how we shouldn’t make decisions based on your emotions. Take some time to cool off, then respond to the situation. He did also admit that people can enjoy such “vices” or entertainment (such as gambling using sites similar to https://casino-korea.com/ and any others that people may enjoy gambling on) without it being detrimental to their livelihood, however, there is a fine line that one has to be careful to not cross! Consequently, it is for this reason that the games found at paybyphonebillcasino.uk are strictly reserved for adults only. This is the same with anything that can become an addiction. Take alcohol, for instance. Having a glass of wine or cold beer after a long or stressful day at work is not a bad thing and it certainly isn’t classed as an addiction. But drinking a bottle of wine (or any alcohol in excess) as a way of coping with any stress that you may be feeling is not a healthy reaction to stress. It is hard to tell when it goes from enjoying a glass or two to needing excessive amounts of alcohol, but it is important that you tell the difference. If you feel you need alcohol, then the likelihood is that you are addicted and you should consider getting help at an outpatient treatment center. If you just enjoy alcohol, in reasonable amounts, then there’s no need to worry. It is all about finding the right balance.
