Try again  


I've gone and done it again. I'm too gutted to write much more so I'm going to bed to try and get some sleep before the full horror of how much I've just lost really hits me.

My goal at the moment is to not gamble tomorrow in a stupid attempt to win it all back.

Today is day zero

Hi there. My philosophy has always been to take it one day at a time. I'm sure you are feeling extremely raw today so I'm not going to comment on the money you have lost but maybe today look at other people's posts and read about blocking, self-exclusion, Gamblers Anonymous, counselling online or in person with Gamcare. It's early days for you (and me as well to some extent) but there are plenty of successful and inspirational stories on this forum. Good luck and keep posting. Best wishes, Phil

Stay strong, make sure you don't have access to money today and it will need slightly easier tomorrow, I was the same last weekend and luckily I've been GF all week, it's been hard but do something to take your mind off it and make it impossible for yourself to get back on it.

Good luck

Time as we know is a healer, to rid ourselves of that awful feeling in the pit of our stomach. Good luck x

Thanks for the support guys, it's much appreciated.

It's just dawned on me I joined gamcare over 2 years ago and I'm no further forward, my own fault I know. Did pretty well and then somewhere it all went wrong and I keep going right back to square one, time and time again. Part of the problem is probably that I keep coming and going from the site but I just don't seem to have the enthusiasm I did back at the start to write everything down, I guess I'm also convinced at the back of my mind that I'll f*** up again anyway so why bother.

But I'm going to try again anyway
