Well done on looking for help.
Scratch cards can be very dangerous in many ways. I hope you start a thread in the My Journal Forum, it is a busier forum and you will get more responses there. Connecting to the groups would help as well.

Hi. Yesterday, I made it 3:45 w; no temptations, today I seriously doubt I’ll make it 24 hours. I’m not playing cryptogram with my words. I had a problems with my hands and fingers, I think the gambling is a 2′ disability to the 1′ disability. I think gambling is a way I chose to unlock misery of my chosen. Today, if anyone reads this. I appreciate your help with any first choices you have made towards coping with addiction at anytime, that you are truly willing to share?:-(
