    My addiction is slots. Try as I might I can’t seem to stop. I am paying one of the ultimate prices I imagine….bankruptcy. And even though I know gambling could stop the bankruptcy from going through ..I went out and did it anyway. I keep asking myself “what is wrong with you”.

    • Go find a good psychologist and try to figure yourself out or else in ten years you’ll be filing for bankruptcy #2.

      • There is no quick fix to this addiction DP. Bankruptcy just takes your consequences away for the short term which in turn delays your healing process. I wish you the best.

        • Slots are also my “drug” of choice. I did self exclusion yesterday, so I can’t step foot in a casino for a year. I am not declaring bankruptcy, but I will be a long time paying this back.

    • For myself reading other people’s posts here is a reminder, enforcement to help stay away from gambling. Gambling is a very difficult addiction to beat. It’s a mind thing I regret the day I ever figured out a slot machine. It was great fun at the start.
      The sorrow and anguish it has caused me is 100 x more than the happiness it created for me.…[Read more]

    It was more than easy to get hooked. I still can’t believe it.

    Can chat help you break the addiction?

    • It helps to speak with other people. Also reading other people’s experiences. For me I don’t feel so alone.
