I need help. I am wasting so much hard earned money and have taken cc advances a few times on slot machines. I try to set a limit but never can stick to it. I win some and then give it all back. It’s not fun but I feel like it’s the only activity that I like to do. Takes my mind off problems at times. I know in my mind that I have to stay away for good but once I go to casino once I talk myself into going again and again.
Same thing with me,but you need to try to stop ….I have same problem but I will try for the last time to quit …if you need some advice or to talk with contact me…
Honestly I had to ban myself from the close casinos and put protective software on my phone and computer. What helped me is finally admitting I have a problem. It’s definitely a progressive disease.
I am going through the same exact process. It is a horrible feeling. Just remember you are BETTER than gambling. I always go to distract myself from my actual life. And recently I’ve noticed it doesn’t matter if I win, or lose. I think I just go to play! Because win or not, I play until I have nothing. It’s embarrasing. It’s embarrasing when the casino staff knows your face and name.
Credit card advances are terrible and I’m really paying for them now. They seem like such a simple thing at the time. Something I could pay back like all other credit, but no. It’s not that easy.
I’m here if you need anyone to talk to. Don’t be sorry, it takes a lot to admit you have a problem and it’s good you came here in search of help.
Keep your head up!
