    This isn’t going to be easy. Please don’t underestimate the power of a drug called gambling. It is an addicting drug that we can quit. I quit gambling on Dec 3rd, 2018. I had quit for 2 months prior to that but that $50 hiccup sets my new date. I’m 4 days sober. Gambling effects us on a subconscious level and we can’t end that by thinking our way out of it or white-knuckling our way through life. This is where I have been coming to talk to fellow compulsive gamblers in recovery and I hope any newcomers join in the 2 chat rooms so that there’s usually a couple people when we go on. Having gambling urges? Come here instead! Tell me about it!

      • Hi Rizzo
        Food for thought
        Lady in my GA home group says compulsive gamblers aren’t stupid people trying to be
        smart or bad people trying to be good. We are sick people trying to get well.
