Thank you to everyone for replying, and especially you ujju. I was just battling urges to gamble and came to this page and saw and read your response. It helped to counter my urges.

I realize I am at a point where I need intense help. My urges come several times within a day, and all it takes is me having a little bit of money (whether borrowed or not) to think I can go and win back everything I lost if I get on a hot enough streak. I know that that’s a lie and that’s the addiction speaking. I do know this is a problem though. Gambling has messed up my concept of money and what it means to earn it. People are starving and I lose several hundreds or even thousands in a matter of minutes. With this addiction, I admit, I’m pathetic.
