    Hi Daisy! I 100% know where you are. I drifters Tia too gambling on Dec. 12th, 2021 so I am very new to this. Trust me you, this website helps if you visit it a lot. I’ve also found counseling which also helps tremendously. Keep fighting and keep coming back here. Good luck… you got this.

    • Thanks lee3413 I’m not feeling that strong I feel like once I get caught up again I’ll have a different mindset like I will go but with a limit and then the online thing is a horrible addition t us so m going to betblocker and 🙏 I won’t fail it’s only day 2 so I was feeling maybe too confident and I don’t wanna set me up for a hard crash

    You are definitely not alone. I decided on Dec 12,2021
    To make a change. It sucks but I know that through help and routine I can best this. I and countless others know exactly how you feel! Keep coming to this board everyone you have an urge or feel
    Helpless. It really has helped me so far. You got this!

    • Agreed, you are not alone
      . I Also relapsed over the last couple of months and I blew through my entire savings to. I will be lucky if I can keep my house if I keep it up. It is so hard to find other things to do and now the online gambling is allowed in my state I feel like I can’t get away from it

I’m still struggling with my wife and family, but the one thing I can control right now is whether I gamble or not. I choose not to, at least today. You got this… just be true to yourself and work on yourself. Thank…[Read more]

    It’s a long process but we are able. Lately I’ve just been a little anxious but I’m trying. I also tried to join a GA meeting virtually but wasn’t successful. I will keep trying

I am looking for help but the problem is I currently live in China where I work and no one will see me online for therapy sessions. I really w…[Read more]

    • Hi Lee, I know exactly how you feel. I’ve been in the same boat, and now I’m trying to quit. I’ve never thought I would be joining such a community, because I thought I am much stronger than this, but honestly, learning from others and supporting each other definitely helps. I’ve been advised here to keep a journal and to write my thoughts every…[Read more]

    • Hello Lee hope you are doing well today I find helpful is keeping a journal just write how many days clean and the date and write how you are feeling that day it gives you time to reflect on your goal and keeps you in the mindset of recovery hope it will help you stay clean and give your higher power a chance to work on you.
