I am not in trouble yet, but all the warning signs are out there. I have a mother who is a gamble addict and she scratches tickets with me. It is bad. I stopped for a period when I could not afford it but I am working more now wasting my hard earned pay on this. Help me please. I pray and buy them anyway it is insane. I am also taking a medication that prompts gambling and I want off but my psychiatrist quit and they haven’t replaced him. I am tempted to take myself off of it as they have not returned my calls. Also my therapist has been away for almost two months and life is getting hard which makes me feel justified and makes it worse. I am not in debt yet but headed there. I want to stop it but I crave it. awful just awful.
