      Hello,

      I play for 2 months, and I play evrything. Slots, blackjack, roulette … But everything online. I wasnt in real casino ever. It started with my first 10$ deposit. I som 170$ on slots. It WAS really Nice feeling, so I wanted to win again and again. I lost 2500$ dollars. I am really sad About it and i dont know WHAT will I do… I cant handle it, I want to win it back… I guess you know that feeling…

      Hello and thanks for starting a thread in the Gambling Therapy forums

We understand that this might be a tough time for you, particularly if you’re new to recovery, so come here as often as you need to and participate in the forums, access online groups and connect to the live advice helpline if you need one to one support. We’re in this together!

      Here on the forum you can share your experiences in a safe, supportive and accepting environment. The beauty of writing it all down is that you can take your time and you will be creating a record of your progress that you can look back on if it ever feels like you’re not moving forward. So, share as much or as little as you like but do try to stick to keeping just one thread in this forum so people know where to find you if they want to be updated on your progress or share something with you.

      And on that note….

      I’m going to hand you over to our community because I’m sure they will have some words of wisdom for you 🙂

      Take care

      Hi Zjola and welcome to the forum.

      Yes, I can certainly remember that feeling – they had my money, I certainly wanted it back!

      What that meant in practice though was of course me giving them more of it!

      Sometimes the best thing to do if you find yourself in a hole is…. stop digging. This is a progressive addiction, carry on gambling and things will always get worse. Even if we do “win” our money back then it’s only a matter of time before we quite willingly give it back to them.

      Read some of the other stories here, you wil see a lot of things you will relate to. You will also see the success stories – what are they doing that you can apply to your own situation?

      As you gamble online a good first step would be to get a blocker for your PC, it will stop you visiting any gambling site online.
      Is there anyone close to you who could help you by holding your credit cards and cash for a while? Accountability is also a good barrier.

      Keep posting and let us know what positive steps you are taking.
