You don’t say where you are located but I am assuming you are in the UK because of the bookies but I usually guess wrong. You came to a good place. I came here and was glad I came. One of the first things I did was sign up for online councilling. I went back to Gambler’s Anonymous. I read and posted alot. I went to group therapy. You have already did step one – admitted that you are powerless over gambling and that your life has become unmanageable. It sounds like you are ready to accept help. It is time you start facing the fact that you are not going to win yourself a good life and get out of the **** that you have created being a compulsive gambler. A lot of people will tell you to turn your finances over to someone you trust, ban yourself from the casinos or bookies and get to meetings. I haven’t found any miracle cures for this as it is a lifelong disease that can never be cured and YOU CAN EVEN BE ******** if things get bad enough. I should know as I spent 150 days in work release because I thought I could use money that wasn’t mine to get myself out of the trouble I made for myself. Keep posting and let us know how you are doing.Winning a jackpot will never be life changing, but gambling compulsively is for me.
