Almost relapsed  


hi everyone,

just now I came very close to gambling after over 150 days without relapse. I am sat in front of the tv and all of a sudden get this urge to see if I can get round gamstop somehow!!

thankfully I didn’t crack, but Jesus wept I came close to giving in!

is this ever going to end I am asking myself? On the one hand I am really happy that I resisted, but on the other I can’t believe how close I’ve just come after so much positive effort to beat this!

thankfully, I realised how silly what I was about to do was, and instead came on here, this forum is amazing for a reality check sometimes.

I hope this is the last time I ever have to type some thoughts after a near miss.

this addiction is f*****g horrendous, and I can’t believe it still has a hold of me even after nearly 6 months gf!

I imagine getting around Gamstop is fairly easy although I haven't tried and don't plan to. If you are having these thoughts, maybe you should invest in a blocking software? I wasted thousands on online poker. I bought Gamblock, best thing I ever did. No more problems with online gambling it'll be the best money you've ever spent and will take away in thoughts of gambling. It's not cheap but remember how much it'll save you in the long run.

Just a thought.

This is gonna go on for life UNLESS we work on losing the desire to gamble! Thats the only way. A non gambler doesnt even think about gambling. Will power is of no use and I will continue to batter people with this info. Work on the desire to go away.
