It is nice to see that I am not the only person struggling with this stupid thing called gambling. I am ready to make a comittment to stop playing online poker. I have so far one day poker free and it feels really good. I need you guys to help keep me on the straight and narrow. I have produced a sizable but manageable debt that I intend to pay down monthly. I feel like there is no way that I am giving anymore of my hard earned money away. I know that compulsive gambling is in my genes as my father who I barely new is a retired doctor who was addicted to slot machines. This is what slot machines rewarded him with at the end of his life which is probably going to be in the current year as he has pancreatic cancer. He is in debt to the irs to the tune of 1 million dollars. He has no money left. The irs took his house. He neglected us his children and chose gambling over us. He is angry and bitter because he can't come to terms with the mistake of gambling instead of giving of his time to his children. This is a guy who made 500,000 a year. Gave it all away to slot machines. I now have a son and there is no way that I am going to end up pathetic, broke and alone like him. The funny thing though is that I was headed that way and but I see I have a problem and am going to stop.
