My name is Dan and I have been gambling for some time now. I feel like it is taking over my life. Every day I seem to want to play on online slots and I don’t know why. I have won money in the past but it never seems to be enough. Now o fond myself in the position that i have lost alot of money and deep down i know it’s silly and i wamt to stop but i still end up depositing daily to try my luck. I feel that it will break my family apart if I speak to them about it. I wish I never started, because I don’t like the person I am today. I can’t continue like this, I hate the person I have become, I just want to get over the hurdle and get my life by on track.
I completely understand how you feel Dan as I’m feeling pretty much the same. I gambled today basically every penny in my bank account on online slots & now I have that same feeling of, hopelessness, loneliness, guilt, shame and sadness at what gambling is doing to me as a person & to my life.
I am fortunate to have a place at the GM residential in September I feel this is my only hope of recovery but tomorrow is a new day.
Hi Dannyboy and Sunnyday. Your posts seem to have been missed down here.
