Hi Lynda,

welcome to the forum and well done on posting your story. Now you have a place to come and put your thoughts relating to gambling, as well as a place to learn from others We support each other through this process of stopping the madness and then staying stopped. I think one of the hardest things is getting it into our heads that we can never gamble responsibly again. No matter what we will lose control eventually and hurt ourselves once again. Charles has some really good advice on stopping. Like perhaps you can self exclude at the casino if that is where you gamble? Or perhaps restricting your access to cash somehow? I too am working on putting some of these barriers in place. Now that I have stopped I want to stay stopped. Keep posting. Never give up trying.
