    Is anyone still struggling and still gambling? I am and I can’t seem to Stop!
    Is this site just for recovering gamblers? Feel I’ve got no place to go for help.

    • I am very much struggling. Today is a bad day, feeling the depression over losses and guilt, worried about bills, and just wondering how to retrain my brain to find joy in anything besides gambling.

    Funny how I had money in my account last week. Enough to pay bills, etc. Since then, I had borrowed again from 2 family members. Lied again as usual. I now feel worse than ever. Guess I thought I had enough to play around a little. Not so. Now I’ve missed 5 big monthly payments and collectors are after me now. Stress eats me up. Been a long w…[Read more]

    Pretty sure your husband doesn’t hate you, but probably hates your gambling. There’s hope here Deb.

    Kumar you are not alone. You are better alive! No amount of money could replace you. Your family may be angry and disappointed, but I’m pretty certain, that they love you and would forgive you if you make the necessary changes. This can be fixed. You have to want it.

    I’ve decided not to admit my gambling addiction to my family until I have decided to seriously quit. Not just say it. The thing with me, when I decide to do something, I actually and whole heartedly do it. I’ll quit! I stall now(30 yr. stall.)because I’ve pretty much had most addictions, so when I give up this one, what’s left? I’m afraid of…[Read more]

    • Hi Mags, I think I understand about knowing when your ready and that you WILL do it when you are finally ready ( with help of resources , right?) As to the next addiction that may take over and fearing what that may be , I think we can get really passionate about recovery and healing resources so much that it covers all addictions and deals with…[Read more]

    I’m spiritual. Love God. 40 yrs sobriety, by the grace of God, yet here I am with a gambling addiction. Go figure. I guess God isn’t finished with me yet. Must need more life lessons. Part of the process of life and learning.

    In 30 yrs. I can’t remember miss playing the slots, buying scratch tickets and the latest since Covid and the casinos were closed, “online casinos”. It’ll be nice the day I can say, I didn’t gamble for today.

    For everyone who is in search of an answer to their gambling problem, I believe we’ve all taken the 1st step, admitting our problem, seeking help. We’re here together.
