    You are absolutely right…..we have to be strong. It’s funny it’s New Year Eve and I’m in the house waiting for 9pm to come so I can enter the chat room. I am serious about this recovery thing and I know it’s going to be difficult. I’m broke now so it’s not much of a struggle, it’s when I get paid on Friday that is the problem. I really get…[Read more]

    I know I have felt that way many times. However; you have to be strong you will be fine, we will be fine it’s still a struggle for me too. My test will come on Friday and Saturday when I have nothing to do and the thoughts of the casino start creeping into my mind. I need strength to get me through this.

    There is hope ending your life will not solve their problems, just think of the pain you will leave them feeling and the psychological problems the both of them will endure due to your death. I don’t have all of the answers hell I don’t have any answers but I know that killing yourself is not the answer.

    • Thank you I’m trying really hard not to think/feel this way

    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 read the stories on here and they all sound similar to my story. I knew I had a problem but I did not acknowledge it until I was talking to my fiance’ and I was telling him that he need to know his drinking limit because sometimes he overdo it. He replied, I know I be intoxicated but it’s like my mind says go get another one, then go get…[Read more]

    I totally understand your pain, I am so far in debt from gambling I don’t know what to do I’m on my second bankruptcy from gambling. I really can’t offer any advice right now because I’m in the same boat you are in, I am going to continue to seek support and pray that I can stop.
