Gambling Therapy logo

Nkalei, it is good that you are starting to think about therapy and are realizing that your gambling stems from a need for something else..what were you doing/ thinking about the last time you relapsed? Is it stress related? Are you depressed as well? I’ve recently (two days ago) started to examine my own moods and needs that are not being met and some things that i need to understand and deal with and it is helping a bit knowing that it is not just an addiction, but a response that has gone wrong. I must look at my thoughts that lead me to gamble and in doing so can perhaps interrupt the pattern. The husband thing, while being a good deterrent in the short run, is not as important as you addressing your needs that are not being met that lead you to reckless and detrimental behaviors. Take care of you.
