Hello all. I am brand new to this site. After much encouragment from my partner, I decided to at least join an on-line group to try and help me with this. I feel so split inside. One part of me wants nothing more to do with gambling at all. The other bargains, dwells upon it, visualizes it, hungers for it. I can't stand this split. I am not sure how to deal with it, other than to deny the urge, try to do self-talk until the urge passes, etc. Another part thinks that if I just let myself go gamble just a little bit, it will get out of my system for a while and get some relief from the demons of gambling. It is my addiction. Some days I just want to give in to it, because I am so tired of fighting.
