    Day 2- went to my first G.A. meeting. This was the real first step I needed. It was hard to admit to myself that this is something I cannot beat on my own.

Reward yourself with something else that you like. Same as day 2 and so forth. A…[Read more]

    Good evening to all of you. I realized years ago that gambling had become an addiction. I always managed to “get by” somehow but this year has been my demise. I started to go to the casino a lot more as I tend to relate it to the stresses in my life. However, it is a blatant addiction. I go and spend everything then I sit and feel complete dis…[Read more]

    • I am in exact same position… Have been gambling and in denied for years that it’s no big deal until last weekend, I went on 72 hrs binged and lost $5k trying to proof if Max bet is the way to make money playing slots!
