It is good that you came back here to the forums. This will be your 'safe haven'. My advice would be to remember the power of self-talk. Negative self - talk like, "why am I so stupid?" or " I hate myself for what I have done." don't work I have found. Use self - talk like, "I am sick and need treatment to get better." "I will make a plan to get better."

Once on the road to recovery you will find hope again. It is tempting to want to get back the money you have lost with more gambling, but it usually just means you get deeper in the hole. People tell themselves they are stupid and that makes them just continue doing stupid things. Use the power  of your mind. Tell yourself over and over, "others have been where I am and recovered, so I can do it too". Best wishes.
