My hubby has found out that I’ve been gambling! Hands up to him, but he doesn’t quite understand and I don’t know where to start on my road to recovery.
my nearest GA is 30-40 mins away, and with kids and jobs I can’t always get to the one that is on.
im a online gambler, so as long as I have cash I’m okay, what’s the best steps to take into stopping! I don’t want jt controlling my life anymore
thanks for reading

Thanks for stopping by. I’m new here too. I highly recommend the My Journals forum as well as checking out the live chat groups — i’ve only been around a few days but feel huge weight coming off my shoulders and positive emotions i haven’t felt in a very long time after using those.
Plan your time, identify your triggers, write it out and get it out. Lots to flesh out.

Hi Amme. I’m guessing you’re in the UK with a “hubby.” Use an online blocker for internet gambling, Gamstop, Gamblock and Netnanny are the ones I’ve heard of. Others on here will know more.
Try and get to at least one GA meeting and see if you can get a buddy or sponsor to support you by phone.
Keep busy – it is time as well as money that leads to gambling. Post something in the journal section of the forum and try to join a group. They aren’t working too well atm – so if it goes quiet, log out and back in again.
Above all get support. This isn’t something that can be tackled alone. I wish you well.28 March 2019 at 1:25 am #8047Mikebass01456Participant
