I don’t even know where to start. I haven’t even been gambling very long but when I started just 2 years ago it seems I can’t stop. Entire paychecks, then scrambling to try and figure out how to make that money back. Sick to my stomach., suicidal thoughts which is unlike me at all. Yet, somehow I can’t seem to quit. It’s a vicious cycle and I cannot do this alone. Too embarrassed to anyone around me because people are so judgmental.
I hate it and I hate myself for it. It’s like I know better yet I feel compelled/drawn to it. It’s the most insane feeling and I don’t know how to make it stop.
Welcome to Gamtalk. No one here is going to judge because we have all been where you are at some point in our gambling addiction.
Hope you will keep coming back and check out the 3 meetings we have on Mondays at 10 pm est Tuesdays 9pm est and Fridays 10 pm est. Also if you go into the chat room and no one is around post how you are doing / feeling and when you will be back.
And if you are interested I send out a couple of daily recovery focused messages as well as any info on how to stay safe and how to battle urges. If you want to try them or just need to share or have any questions please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
