    I have messed up again, big time. I want to ask a question on here. Please feel free to give me your input. Do you think it is advisable for someone who has a gambling problem to give any money they earn to their partner so that they are in control of finances. I know this will be sensible in some instances but my biggest concern is not having…[Read more]

    • bbgirl in my years of experience there are all kinds of people with different views on how matters should be handled.
      Does your husband know you gamble?
      That is the reason you wish to hand your finances over to him.
      If it’s possible to develop a system that you can show him where you wish to spend your money and it’s not on gambling. He sho…[Read more]

    In the South, wild hogs eat and wreck everything. So, farmers and landowners are always trying to trap them, just like gambling is always trying to trap us. The farmers set giant metal cages on their property. Then they put food inside them so that someday they will slam the door shut and get about 18 of them.
    The traps are set up and the young…[Read more]

    Hi, I am 23 and I struggle with a slot machine gambling addiction. In the beginning, it was great. I’d only deposit $20 or play with free spins or free bonuses, and I was okay if I lost. Well, this started to change because one night I deposited $20, and I actually won big this time, like around $1,000. As time progressed, I was still winning! I…[Read more]

    2 Corinthians 10:4 Says that we “Have divine power to destroy strongholds.”
    I used the Bible verse, “The eye is the light of the body, if that light is darkness, how great is that darkness,” as my divine power to pound on my stronghold. The meaning of this verse is: Whatever you desire most (bad things) will bring you darkness (If bad), or light i…[Read more]

    I’m literally sitting in the parking lot of a casino crying my eyes out!! I literally blew all of my bill money.

This is beyond unbearable. I can’t eve…[Read more]

      I totally relate as I just posted… When I think of God helping me, I realized that His help wouldn’t come in that big win.. but in strength somehow to manage to get away from this addiction. I picture ‘Him’ shaking His head when I go yet again to Him for the same thing over and over… saying I’m so sorry… but I realize the decision is mine in…[Read more]

Please start the road to recovery and you…[Read more]

    Question. If someone offers to pay a debt. Should u take it or not? I am thinking that my debt is a reminder of my mistake and paying it off is my way of reminding me of why I should not gamble. But the person that offered to pay the debt says that the interest on the debt with just get higher and higher. I worry that if the debt is paid I will…[Read more]

    • Paying off the debt isn’t the answer. You need to deal with why you want to gamble. If you don’t you will continue to gamble and get deeper and deeper in debt. Pay off your current debt and stay away

    • Have to agree with frog. Your worried you might think back to even, why not. Well that’s exactly what you need to ask yourself, why not. Getting into more debt, having more stress, shame. It seems like your just finding the easy way back to what is causing all the problems. Why not, write down a list of the reasons why not. And remind yourself o…[Read more]

    The Bible says to think about things that are of good report. Every minute of every day we get to choose… Think about bad things, job problems, school problems, money problems, or, we can go out of our way to find something good to think about. This is a great exercise for quitting addictions, because this is very similar to a key habit for…[Read more]
