I quit on June 10th but had several relapses.
I just can't seem to kick it. I stopped for a month, my wallet was looking bigger, I was on road to recovery after ten years of loosing.
I made a choice to quit (again) last week after a monumental loss. Why am I so insistent on punishing myself.
Its affecting my health, I've been diagnosed with anxiety.
I'm more determined then ever. The look on my children's faces is going to be the fuel to kick this [email protected] for good.
Chin up folks xx
It's simple. Do it for your children. My father was a compulsive gambler, because of that I spent most of my childhood in care and now I've foolishly followed in his footsteps. Do you want your kids to grow up copying you? Because of gambling I've been in some dark places including being homeless. I accept responsibility for my own actions, I don't blame my dad completely but i'm sure my life would have been a lot happier if he stopped.
Don't mean to be harsh. I wish you well.
I'm at the beginning of my recovery too..... I believe blocks should be put in place and seek advice from a counsellor. I'm hoping to do this when i have alone time in the home.... have you done anything like that at all to help you?
I totally get the self destruction of it and its crazy what we do and not only to ourselves!
here's to our recovery!
Best of luck
