    This study will examine the feasability and acceptability of a novel group
    treatment manual for individuals with Gambling Disorder and psychiatric

    /Craving to Gamble and Craving for Alcohol: a Comparative phenomenological
    Craving plays a central role in Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) both in
    maintenance and in relapse. Craving is also evident in Gambling Disorder
    (GD), as a symptom of withdrawal proposed to be associated with continued
    gambling. However, it is less well understood and currently not a criterion
    in the DSM 5 for GD.
    The proposed study will use a mixed method approach to compare and
    contrast the craving experience among 20 individuals with GD with 20
    individuals with AUD. To be included in the study the participants must
    fulfil the respective diagnostic criteria's, be abstinent (minimum 5 days to
    maximum 3 weeks) and treatment seeking. The experience of craving will be
    measured in terms of, type of cognitions (mental imagery vs verbal thoughts)
    content of the craving, possible activation of perceptual processes without
    sensory input and the individual’s response to the craving experience.
    Quantitative data will include ratings of frequency and intensity of cravings
    within the last week, as measured by the Craving Experience Questionnaire
    (CEQ) and qualitative items will include items aiming to describe the craving
    concept embedded in the study (e.g. “describe your last craving
