In my case, there was no adrenaline high from winning or losing. The high was being in the action. As in any addiction, after years of not gambling, once I relapsed, I set off a phenomenon of craving. I lost material possessions, family trust, and my self worth. I apply the same principles of Alcoholic's Anonymous to my gambling abstinence. I have changed my thinking through positive actions. I recognize that my life, (family, finances, work, and self esteem) would be lost if I gambled again. Helping others also has been a plus. As of this date, I am seven years continuously free from gambling. –Joe C.

Pertussis, or whooping cough, is a highly contagious respiratory disease caused by the bacterium Bordetella pertussis.

This bacterium is found in the nose, throat and mouth of an infected person, and can be easily spread. Pertussis can occur at any age, but often causes serious problems in babies, and is usually milder in older children and adults. Children who are too young to be fully vaccinated and those that have not received all their vaccinations are at highest risk for severe illness and complications. Complications of pertussis can include pneumonia (infection of the lungs), encephalitis (inflammation of the brain), seizures, and other physical and medical outcomes associated with a severe cough.
