My story is a mixture of all the worst stories. I have been a cg since the age of 10, im 38 now. The one good thing is that i dont have debts.
In the last 8 years i have gambled but i also gained a life for myself.
I now have a family, a good job, a house etc. But i was still gambling. 12 weeks ago i posted on gamcare, someone left a link that led me to safe harbour. Its where i hang out now.
At first i didnt like the place that much and didnt fit in. Its far to 12 step orientated for me i thought.
Anyway it led me to look for more help and i found Rational Recovery. Also i found Stanton Peele. Also im sort of part of a little community at safe harbour ( which is a cg chat and posting site )
I thank all my friends who have led to me to this happy place ( in my mind ) but i couldnt have done it without myself 🙂
Its been 6 weeks since my last gamble but the time is quite irrelevant. I have made the decision to stop and i dont need will power to do it.
I will post here from time to time.
Sorry for the slow uptake didn`t click ds was dess.
