    Welcome. I have done everything and then some. I have not been to a casino since Feb. 2020 but gambled online for a month. I had to block myself from online sites.

    Hi, I began gambling to combat loneliness and it quickly became an addition that I’ve had for 26 years. I have done everything you have done and more.

    I have been gambling for 26 years, attended several GA meetings, been evicted numerous times, gambled away my retirement, bounced checks, lied consistently to family and friends, owe too much money, and have started my life over several times. I moved to a state with no casinos, in hopes of ending my addition, but of course, I found a way to…[Read more]

    • Hi JJ – thanks for sharing your story. This disease is so difficult. I found similarities between us while reading your story. It sounds like you’re trying hard to prevent yourself from gambling. I’m glad you’re on here talking about it. It means you want to change and that’s where all of us have to start.
