hi nice to meet you. that's how it goes. gambling actually saddens me so much, i am totally blown away by the effect and devestation it has left many people. it is mind boggling. so much so that consciously i would not even gamble at all, not one dollar. it is the subconscious mind that i don't trust, if it takes over i am scared to relapse. very scared.

Congratulations. 3 days probably feels like u are halfway up the mountain. Keep going and talk to us when u are feeling weak. Some days are harder and when the mind isn't busy is when it creeps in. Were here for u! Be honest too. If by chance u feel yourself sliding (which u won't because u are strong) don't look at it as having to start over, look at it as a skinned knee, get up, dust off and keep walking! :)

Congrats. Gambling is a rough one to conquer. What else have you been doing to help this?

Best Answer

first of i have been happier on the inside that helps, i did so many other things too many to mention. main thing is redefining the word gambling, it is not called winning for a reason. sometimes i ask god why me? i guess dreams are for dreamers

Best Answer

I think that a lot of the addictions today are usually entwined with other addictions. Redefining yourself is a very hard thing to do...I stopped drinking over 11 years ago. I honestly did not know what to do...who I was, and that was a big wake up call for me. To actually acknowledge that something other than myself define me was really overwhelming at first. It took me a long time to rebuild what I had destroyed.

ty for sharing. i am not a drinker myself, but i have a very strong nicodine addiction i mean i can not go a day without a smoke, and i have spent a fortune on nicotine replacement therapy. the withdrawal is actually that bad. but with gambling addiction it is somewhat different, it is like drinking socially acceptable ok and it's everywhere. when i say i hate gambling people tell me to get real. if gambling was a demon i would shoot it down in an instant, it shouldn't exist period. my councelor said it was up to me, that is totally not fair, i am not made perfect.

Best Answer

Some people have the self control and use gambling as entertainment. I am glad you recognize that you do not have that self control and have stepped away. It took me a long time to get over the denial stage. Stay strong and find new activities that bring you satisfaction.
