Too Much Spent-too Much Lost
I buy $30.00's worth of scratch offs per day--sometimes more. I win--I lose--I buy more with the winnings and buy even more in hopes of winning more. I do use money i can't afford to lose, but am dumbfounded by the control this habit/addiction has over me. I alternate stores so that I am not embarrassed by going into the same stores again and again. I would like to stop. I told my therapist about this and her advice was to cut down to say$5.00/day--but I found that less than helpful, since contol is not easy for me. Any ideas??
