So I am telling my story. My gambling really got bad after I started driving a taxi for a living. I was 29.you see I had the option of taking my money I earned home for the day, or putting it on a pay check. At first for awhile I was fine. I had no problems. But after a while I started getting greedy. I would take my money home and keep some. At first not gambling but being dishonest. Then after awhile I started back buying scratchers. As I told everyone I originally got hooked in 87 or so .I could not stop without ga I found gambler anonymous about 10 years ago,maybe a little less. I stopped for about 5 years. But one day I was in front of a convenience store,and said to myself,I can stop if I buy some tickets. So in I went. Out I came scratched the tickets. Hooked again. So fast forward to March 5th 2018 5 years gambling . That was my last day I have better. What’s changed? I found this website, and you guy’s. So together we can one day at a time resist the urge of our illnesses and overcome.
