I am new here, however all the stories I’ve read sound like mine in a bunch of ways. I gambled for fun and nothing serious at first, I would only spend as planned nothing more. —- Then I won 11K and for months I was winning thousands, not realizing I was playing the winnings!! Then I won 30k, days later thousands more. Sounds like a windfall right? You’d like to have this problem right? Not so fast.
It would have been if I stopped. But the more I won the more I wanted to win. My thought is screwed up! Winning large sums makes smaller sums seem useless. If I win a few hundred or 1k I think I can win more because I have! I pray to Jesus for Help!
I am smart, educated, well paid— now laden with debt. I went from Credit score over 760 the 547 within a 1 yr period. Gambling has taken a toll on me and I am in a position where I own property occupied with tenants. I don’t want to sell and leave them looking for shelter but what are my options? I have to stop gambling- it’s no longer fun it’s burdensome.
Praying God Blesses us all.
hi everyone Time has been flying by for me, in good ways. Yes, I’m staying busy, but more importantly than that I’m experiencing a sense of well-being. I know for sure I’m not being as hard on myself as I was when I gambled, that has been one of the best changes in my life.
Today I finally took a step onto my journey of recovery after 12 years of gambling. I knew I had a problem the last 6 years or so but I finally have had enough and I came here for some support and I called GA to get info on meetings (I’ve never gone before) and I set up an appointment with a councelor. I’m in huge debt my husband doesn’t know about. If I tell him I’m afraid of divorce...
