I can't stop gambling!
I'm not sure where to begin, My gambling has destroyed my life. I declared bankruptcy several years ago after taking several thousand dollars in cash out of credit cards to gamble with. My parents died 5 years ago and left me about 80,000 now its gone. I went to the casino last night at 7PM and left this morning at 7:30 AM lost another 1000. I feel sick! But in a day or two I will feel better and find myself at the casino again. Im wondering if I will be able to pay my house payment this month. I hate myself after a night of gambling but can't stop. I always say "that was the last time" but it never is. I really don't have anyone to turn to. It is effecting my work and my health. I sort of just curl up for a day and hide for awhile untill I feel better. I wish casinos were never allowed here. I know it's my fault and my responsibility, I just want my life back. This is hard for me, I never ask for help. I honestly don't know what to do. I have shut most people out of my life and have hidden this problem from everyone. Please tell me how to start stopping, where to begin. Thank You

I was able to stop for 2 straight months playing the slots but I relapsed and lost then went back a week after and lost again. Played again last Sept 17th because I wanted to celebrate after a good week at work but lost a lot :(... I hope that was the last...
One thing I have learned in life in trying to better myself is that we kind of need to learn from our successes and failures. Add tools to your life that helps you live a life that makes you feel good about yourself....One thing that is simple in my gambling addiction was/is don't go to the atm and get a hundred dollars out just to have some carrying around money...get twenty or maybe...

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
