What a **** day, its me daughters 7th birthday but can,t see her because her mams got plans to say im angry is an understatement.

Well I got to near a year without gambling, but I set up an online account which I have never done before which I have been gambling on roulette for the last month I have won about 1500. So if I could stop now id be in a good place money wise. But that's the question can I stop

Hi, long time reader but I don't post much. I suppose congratulations on nearly going a year.

Don't know what to say about whether you should keep the money, I hope you do but if your a compulsive gambler you wont.

Just to take you away from the money..I just thought I'd copy and paste the last few lines of your first ever post on here.....

but still cant get over what i have lost threw it. MONEY,GIRLFRIEND AND DAUGHTER. Gambling had taken over my life. But no more i must fight back

£1500 or not don't forget whats this addiction has done to you and the great work you had been doping up until the slip and why you quit in the first place
good Luck

Well lost 1800 today yes its money I have won but I have put meself and my mam threw hell today again. It has to stop for good I can,t gamble because I can,t stop I no all this but I still do it.
Like I have said its only money I have won so I have not blown all the money I saved when I went near a year gamble free but that's not the point.
I just have to make sure I go over a year gamble free and that 1800 will be worth it because its taught me another lesson can,t gamble BECAUSE I CAN,T STOP.

fella sorry to read you went back at it but glad you see it as a lesson.
Your post would have read like many incidents in my gambling life. To abstain for periods of time to then be fooled into thinking a pound on the lotto would be fine, or a couple of quid on an accumulator on the football.
All this did was to gift my addiction the edge, then the pursuit of the fobt would follow and with it destruction.
There is a for us the compulsive gambler one choice.
Total abstinence.
I did win because I did stop.
Three days on my friend be proud, learn your lesson. You can't change the past you can use it to educate the future.
Be proud as again you are a winner.

Cheers charlotte and womble

Things have settled down a bit since the last time I wrote on me diary. I have a blocks in place on me laptop which even stops me accessing this website that's why I have not been on for a long time. Got me brother to put password to knock it off a bit so I can have a look on here.
Gambling wise im not in a position why I can say I never have a bet again but I have a lot of things in place so I don,t.
Really nice to see womble doing well but feel for charlotte because I and everyone of us knows what this gambling addiction is like, it only ever going to take from you

Went to bank this morning but they nothing really they can do. They talked about reducing loans payments but that will mess up my credit score and I be paying for them even longer. Tryed to get a simple bank account where you cant use your card on online but I have loans on my account so I can,t get this.
So me mam has loaned me money to pay off ******** payday loan which is a huge relief.
I just want to be normal, have a girlfriend bit a money in bank but what have I got. Absolutely nothing when I should have a bit of money but I have wasted it all on roulette. I work hard for nothing
