I need to post this for my own sanity. I have come to terms with the fact I have a gambling issue. Although I use self exclusion from websites, I continue to find a way to gamble.
I gamble when I’m bored... it use to be fun and now I’m just chasing losses. I’m young, and I do not want my life to continue in this way.
Does anyone have any tips on how to stick to GF plans? As I’m currently struggling, and I can’t keep going on like this.
Thanks in advance.
