This is my first post with regards to my gambling. I've been doing it for years without ever considering what consequences that would have on me personally. I've been extremely withdrawn and a bit of a loner for many years and have used slots gambling as a source of entertainment to fill time and boredom. I have a girlfriend who I love dearly, and although I have been completely honest with her she sees me as someone who has a disability. And she's right. I don't think I fully understood how my actions have affected the people I really care about. Ive decided to take a long look in the mirror and get into the real world and attempt to get out of the cycle I'm currently in.
I've worked out that I'm most vulnerable on Monday and Tuesdays as I'm off so trying to fill it with other things to keep my mind off it.
I'm going to post every 5 days of how I cope and deal with the urges to gamble as they come.
