    By law ? Does that mean you’ll get arrested if you go and get caught? I like the idea. I for sure will be very afraid to risk it

    • I would be escorted off of the property. If they didn’t catch me playing and I won over $1200 it would be forfeited. I wouldn’t get it. Heck no I won’t go in there!

    Thank you for the encouragement Barbarat 😊 It’s going to be a long journey but looking at it as a challenge. I learned from this group that it’s not only about stopping gambling but making positive changes in my life… one step at a time. I love the warmth in this group ♥️

    For years I had planned to do this. Printed out paperwork but before I could mail it off I manage to “talk” myself out of it. I think it is a wise move. I will be doing that soon as I get money for the notarization. It’s so pathetic. I gamble thousands of dollars and now I don’t even have $15.

    • I can’t set foot in there. I noticed that I was going to get my freeplay and leaving credit cards at home. Then one day I bring the plastic by “accident” and blow $2000 over $20 freeplay. Crazy. Self excluding is leaving the credit cards at home and also.. not going in at all, ever. By law:)

    I’ve suffered enough ! 15 years I’ve let this gambling addiction take control of me and my life and it’s time to take the control back ! No time and energy will be wasted on looking back but on moving forward. I’d rather drive to therapy and GA than to gambling establishments…..

    • I’m all for that.

    • Such a great way to take charge! I love that you see the value in driving to GA and therapy vs. the casino’s. Continue to move forward with a positive attitude and don’t look back. We are here for you if you need to talk or even if you just want to vent. No judgement here just love and support.

    I have no more cards to balance transfers to and from. No more offers. Been just approved for a huge interest car title loan. I need it to pay a co worker for a loan and overdrafts and December expenses etc. I’m doomed. Been in this situation before, Wondering why I did not learn my lesson.
