    Prayer From a Distraught Gambler

    Oh God, my life is being destroyed with my gambling addiction and I am so caught up in it that I know I cannot stop on my own. Lord You know how badly this has affected my home, my family and my finances and friends. I have lost everything and everyone I care about and I am at my wits end. Lord please help me to…[Read more]

    • Hi Anonc
      Took me years to put down the shovel and ask for help.
      Nearly cost me everything including my family home and job.
      Considered ending my life but called GA turned my money over to my partner
      found counseling and slowly my life turned around. Hope you will ask someone
      to help you manage your money.
      God Bless

    • There is no shame in doing whatever you can to overcome addiction, and that includes asking someone for help. In fact it’s very brave. I self-excluded from my local casino and have been continuing to self-exclude from online sites as they appear in my inbox with offers. Don’t give up and just keep doing your best. God will take care of the rest.

    • Hi Anonc, Tonight it the weekly chat session on Gamtalk from 6-9pst or 9-12 est. I didn’t and don’t find recovery to be fun either. But recovery is allowing me to find some joy. What is joy? I like this quest to refind some joy in life. Sorry that it tough right now. odaat.. that’s the wisdom which really sticks for me. Glad you’re here and…[Read more]

    • I understand. I’m having to relearn the idea of fun. I’ve spent so much time in stress and guilt that I’m slowly discovering that right now I’m ok with a lack of those negative feelings and having some peace as “fun”. Doing things I’ve neglected doing for myself like laundry, even showering and putting on makeup. Making a cup of tea and…[Read more]

    financial grief really strugglinggggggg

    • Hi Anonc
      Not sure where you are from but suggest you see if there is any credit counseling where you live or if you attend Gamblers Anonymous meetings ask if they have a Pressure Relief Group. Stay strong and try not to let the addiction convince you that
      you can win yourself out of debt.
      God Bless
