    I’m new to this site
    I have been gambling for about 4 years but this last year it has just taken over
    Tonight I lost my whole paycheck chasing the win
    I do 1 or 2 meetings a week and I’m starting cognitive therapy with a counselor 1/9
    I don’t know why I can’t stop

    • Gambling is worse than other addictions, a lot of people think that it is mind over matter but it’s not its difficult to stop, I have incorporated prayer in my attempts to stop because without God I know its impossible to stop.

      • Thank you for sharing that is what I have to do give it to God lately I wanted to go gamble I got money for Christmas but I know where it’s going to go right to the casino and then I’m going to feel like crap

        • I understand my fiance’ gave me 500 dollars for Christmas, I was proud of myself because only 100 of it went into the casino and the other 400, I went shopping with. I am so glad I have something to show for the money he gave me. I haven’t been to the casino in like a week going on two but that’s only because I don’t have any money to go. The real test will come on Friday when I get paid. Pray for me.
