Day 14 of no gambling. It might not sound like much, but for me it’s a big deal.
I never thought it would be so difficult to find a qualified clinician, but it has been challenging. It seems like everybody has a waiting list. I am focused on locating a group as well to join.
I have made it through my first week without gambling in a long time. But I need to find a support group asap.
I’m meeting with my doctor today to talk about antidepressant medication. Hopefully will help and support my recovery. Appears primary issue may be depression and gambling started out as a coping method or outlet,but then became its own separate problem.
I’m afraid. I don’t want to lose my wife and family. I’m so tired of worrying every day about money. Constantly rationalizing and trying to cover up all the wasted money. I make an excellent salary, but I am always broke. I have destroyed my credit and I can’t even open a new bank account. I’m pathetic.
This is my first entry, and I am hoping it will be the first of many. I want to stop gambling before it becomes any worse. Because of my employment it is difficult for me to seek local help. I am trying to find other avenues to help myself. The problem is with scratch tickets. Used to be online poker but that fortunately is no longer an issue or even possible in the states.
This is where I will keep a diary of my progress Fighting against my gambling addiction
