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.

I played, I won & played until I...
Well I did it again...gambled away every last cent. Disgusted with myself...praying this time I have the strength to be done for good. So my apology is that I plan to post a single phrase every day...starting today...and that is TODAY I WILL NOT GAMBLE. That’s gotta be my first and foremost thought every day. So if you see these repeated posts from me, I’m sorry if they annoy you but please...
