After spending 4 hours researching online about Gambling addictions I decided to join this site and try to quit. I started gambling about 5 years ago. And unfortunately it keeps getting worse. I've just moved to Iowa for a promotion. I have a great job.. but no personal life. my personal life is going to the casino and sitting in front of a slot or playing cards. I had hoped to quit when I moved her 3 weeks ago but the Casino is like an old friend, warm and welcoming. I started smoking for the first time at a casino. Now thats the only place I smoke. So I go to the Casino, smoke, and drink. My brother is in AA...and thats all he talks about. I need help. But with being new in town and with the position I hold its not something I want to share with everyone. I have one friend who knows how much I gamble. (my old roomate) She is concerned as well. I keep reading on here about self-excluding myself from the Casino? What is that?

I have my maxed amount of epidural shots of my cervical DDD....(and no one cares about my lumbar DDD)..... I've done physical therapy, muscle relaxers, Amitriptyline, Nortryptiline, desipramine.....narcotics... So I decided to go to a spine specialist and they have me on Gabapentin. Its been two weeks and it did nothing for my lumbar ever... but it did seem to help my cervical and arm/hand pain...
