Hi everyone. I've been lurking around this site for a couple of months now. After going to the casino yesterday and spending what I brought and thought I could afford to lose, I ended up writing checks for what I couldn't afford to lose and of course lost! I am finally ready to give it up. I never thought, as any of you did, that I would be in a position like this. It started four years ago as something fun to do, and it has now turned my life into a living hell. So tired of chasing my hard earned money. Funny how I can't afford to buy anything, or go on vacation, but I always seem to find money to gamble with. My husband has been tolerant, but his tolerance is beginning to wane. I've told him over and over I have a problem. I don't think he realizes how serious it is though. I usually only go a couple times a week, but he has no idea how much money I spend. He would be mortified, as I am. So, today is day one ... please keep me in your thoughts.
