      Hello everybody
      My name is Gio, i am living in Georgia (country)
      I am gambler for 7 years. Last 4 year i am playing live roulette almost every day.
      From my opinion i am perfect example how to become from “good guy” to nobody.
      I am loosing every day a lot of money. per month more or less 5000-6000 Euro. I lend money from everybody who i know, from Banks and atc. but its not a main problem.
      the main problem is that 5 years ago everybody was respecting me, they believed in me but now none trusts me. For this time my only “friends” are people who i know from casino. My old friends don`t want to be with me any more. (i can understand them)
      I am playing every “kind” of money does not meter it`s mine or not. Cheating everybody and everyday.
      God know how many times my mother paid my debts. She is crying all the time and when i am looking her i am telling to myself that i will not gamble anymore, but i am still gambler.
      Does not meter how much money i will loose, most important is that i don`t have right to be a gambler.
      Worth is that i am not going to casino to win, i am going there to play that`s only aim. when i am there i don`t remember anything and anyone.
      Can not find solution. Just came to home from casino and decide for first time in my life to find some forum where i could write my feelings. Every morning i am telling to myself that i am starting new life, but still…. I miss to sleep normally.
      i am very scared for this kind of future life.
      Every time when i am looking to mirror i want to spit myself.
      Many time i theft money from my mother. if it would be possible i would sell most probably my soul. (But i guess i am doing it every day when i am going to gamble)
      i don`t wish even worth enemy this kind of life what i have.
      Thank you for attention

      Welcome to GT and you have started on your recovery journey by coming here. Is there a Gambler’s Anonymous where you live, if so I would suggest that you reach out to them to get support. You should also keep posting here and you will find support from so many. Also read the posts that others have written here as it helps you to realize that you are not alone. There are so many of us who are compulsive gamblers or gambling addicts. You have to take every day as a new day and not think about never gambling again, just take it one day at a time. Keep posting!!!!

      Hello Gio!
      I saw your post last night late and answered it but just then the internet was disconnected so it did not deliver! Sorry about that!
      The weekends are quiet here. You will get more replies next week.
      It is good that your mother knows you have a problem with gambling. Can you ask her to take care of your money because gamblers cannot control money We will just keep losing and losing. Then we will lose all our friends, our dignity and our souls! Gambling is like a magnet. It sucks the life out of CGs.
      When you decide to stop you will find there is a lot of help available her Gio. You will be given a bag of recovery tools with instructions how to use them Then you will decide HOW to use those tools One day at a time.
      Keep posting!

      The first step you just took! It’s admitting you have a problem and going somewhere to find a solution! We are all here because we all have the same problem and we need to stop.. Next step is to find some help, go to GA or talk to a counselor, or just keep on here all the time, it helps me so much. Make a committment on any given day to not gamble for that day, and then the next do to the same thing, and just keep moving forward! We all mess up, it’s not going to be easy, but you will eventually learn to like yourself again! This is like a disease, we do things we would never do under normal circumstances, so please know we are all here for you, to share and to care! Keep coming here and posting!!! It has done so good for me!
