Hey joy,
Gambling often gets us crossing the line where we would never have before.
but that's because the addiction is influencing our thinking and it can be very devious in all the little ways it tries to get us to gamble...
I don't believe it represents our true character as people when we gamble
as our brains have been hijacked
you said
"'I am determined to beat this though. I'm not the person I thought I was or the one I wanted to be. ......... yet .... but I will be. "'

you do good to feel ashamed it shows who you really are and that the real you that wonderfull, loving,intelligent ,creative person that you really are is
still who you are- its just been pushed aside abit as your gambling alter ego takes over...
When the gambling urge is gone there will be nothing to stifle the real you from shining through
You are allreaady that person it just been muffled by gaamblingss scream to bee satisfied
which has never been your identity...
You don't have to become what you already are....
you just have to quiet the false voice of gaambling
and then youl be free to be your true self...

Hi Joy,

If you had to do that day over again, what else could you have done with that $30?

Hi Joy
I admire your honesty in describing and facing up to what you have done. Honesty is important as this disease encourages you to be a liar, and to justify behaviour in order to allow you to repeat and do again. After a bust my mind works overtime in justification. Your description of how you felt today resonates with me from my past busts. So I think it is important that you are disgusted with your behavior and called out that you don't want to be a person who does that again. Use the bust to firm up your strategies, and although day 1 again is disappointing, you will be stronger now in fighting urges. Best wishes.
Always a 'work in progress'

Had the same problem yesterday. Had to keep putting in my email & password. It was really strange.
