    You’re most welcome, Liam. Try meetings again, try different meetings. When the urge comes back to gamble then breathe deeply and reach out to someone from your meetings or your therapists or someone on here. Just commit to not gambling and the urge will pass. If you think you can gamble a little bit and not find yourself in the exact…[Read more]

    Self exclude if that is applicable, GA meetings (they do work and I was sceptical), a therapist and these online forum chats and meetings. I do ALL that I mentioned. Commit to it and you’ll be surprised that the cravings/urges lessen in time and it doesn’t take that long for it to lessen.

    • Thank you kc.. I have tried the meetings before but I always seem to slip back into the gambling again.. I just find it so hard to stop

    You’re welcome. I steered clear of giving my opinion on if you should tell your wife or when you should tell her because that is your decision.

    You’re welcome. Just take one day at a time…don’t think or worry about tomorrow just live in the moment; that really does help.

    This much I know, the desire to not gamble will lessen as time goes on with the proper support. I dont see how you can do this without the help and support of others. G.A. a therapists and this forum will all help and I do all three and it is working. My last casino/slot experience was 11/10…its only been 6 weeks and I am turning everything…[Read more]

    • Thank you for those words. I’m really trying and having this forum and all of you talking me through this tough day helps.

      • You’re welcome. Just take one day at a time…don’t think or worry about tomorrow just live in the moment; that really does help.
