      New to group. Lost and confused. I’ve been gambling so much lately. I’m going through cancer treatment, but I’m cancer free. I’m trying to figure out why I’m doing this to myself. I have a beautiful life, but I’m on the road to ruining it. I need help, advice, tricks, tips, etc to stop, besides self exclusion and just stopping. I’m a mess and I need to know that I can overcome this and get through today.

      Hi Misscari

      Sorry to hear about you’re treatment for cancer. I am happy to hear that you are cancer free.

      You are not a loser we as gambling addicts maid 1000 or even more of bad decisions.

      I hope you still have not loose hope for future.

      I am new to this forum but I believe that we all can turn this around.

      You are seeking advice.

      Try and find old hobby that used to make you happy
      Time management sometimes the boredom drove us all back to gambling for that rush
      I am trying to constantly remind myself why I join GT and how bad gambling made me feel.
      I believe that gambling also affected our mental health.

      I guess if you want to feel like a champion again we need to take on this struggle thay by day.

      Reward yourself for small achievements ex. Day 1 or week 1.

      We are not failures we are a addicted to life destroying addiction.

      But I believe we still have the choice to turn it around.

      Never loose hope

      It’s important to talk to someone who can, though, such as a mental health professional or a counselor who specializes in addiction. They can offer you the guidance, support, and strategies you need to overcome problem gambling and regain control of your life. Don’t hesitate to reach out to them or a support group like Gamblers Anonymous for assistance. You’re not alone in this, and there is help available.
