    Hi, sunflower

    Bonnie,

    Yes! That is the crazy thing! I just went again because of free play points. I’m driving to the casino knowing that every time I go I use up my free play and then get into any money I have. I won $200 on a 25cent bet 2 nights ago. I just couldn’t believe it! So excited! But I just got there and thought I’d play a little longer. 8 hours…[Read more]

  • I swear it off and then, even though part of me feels physically sick, I still go thinking that I can do it this time. Win and leave. My daughter says, just don’t go! Sounds simple enough, right? How can I justify getting in my car and physically driving myself there?

    Gambling addiction is like chasing coke or something similar, or worse. I went to a ga meeting this morning, really great meeting. Was going to go to another tonight. Paid off my money tree loan. Then took out another, drove to the casino and lost it all. This keeps on happening. I think I hit my bottom but apparently not. I just started gambling…[Read more]
