Sunay, I went up to check my mailbox in Woodland, then I stopped at the casino. I had no "Free money" on my card, but I had $125 in comps. So went to the casino boutique and spent $118 Then went and asked to be banned. The security came and told me "I will ask you the reason, if you say "Problem Gambling" this is a LIFETIME ban. You cannot come on the property, if found, you will be arrested, cited for criminal trespass. Do you understand?" I replied I did and he said "What's the reason?" I replied "Problem gambling"
So, I was banned for life, I then left with my stuff (Duffle bag, three coffee cups) and left there happy that this one avenue for gambling had been shut off from me for forever. I then attended GA that night. I didn't speak, they have changed methods and a few words (No mention of exact amounts of money as this can "Trigger" people. 3-5 minute what has happend to you as of late) so I really liked that.
Then I left and went home. This morning I got up and faced the first day of work. Ran myself good they did, but if this was the worst, I can handle it. My trainer was skipping about, as she had a "Trainee" who knew how to work and got right to it. They found out I had done a year in another Mold Injection plant in Iowa and suffered mean heat work in Missouri where temps were 105 degrees and even got up to 140 degrees (I was 85 feet from a powdercoat burner)
Now I don't think I could survive that amount now, but they knew I had toughed it out and so I did there. Only used 7 ibprofen. They had me on thee machines, but I ended up helping another worker on two more. So yeah, making a name for myself.
I chuckled just now thinking of the UI check I'll get tomorrow and had thought of going to the casino after a bill was paid from it. Nope, now I had closed that door and so guess it's going to a bill payment. So, I'll still have to fight the desires, but now it's a little bit easier knowing my "Go to" place is not open to me anymore.
Hello friends - been a while since I posted. No excuses, just busy with life and many other things and haven't had much time to post or read. Tomorrow will be one year since I've gambled. I wrote a letter and hope you all don't mind if I share:Hello, my name is Jason, and I’m a compulsive gambler.I’ve uttered these words at least once a week, sometimes more for the last year. Today, October...
Okay, I had a gambling/drinking dream. It was a quick, little dream. Drink in hand and headed for the machines, with the LOUDEST thought in my head, NO ONE NEEDS TO KNOW. The secret. Ugggggggggg This happened the night I went to a concert, Lenny Kravitz, with my husband. I had a Roy Roger’s, I never drink Coke, crazy! Hahahaha Good concert. I quit drinking almost a yr ago, gambling 19...
